Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Auto-adjusting in Quick Edit, part of Up and Running with Photoshop Elements 12.
Never of the controls in the Quick Edit workspace offer an Auto Option.…Now, when you use Auto you lose control over the result.…But if you're in a hurry it's sometimes…worth taking a look at the Auto adjustments.…Here I have a photo that I think needs…some additional contrast, but I'm satisfied with the color.…So, let's see what the various Auto Adjustments do to this photo.…I'm going to start with Smart Fix.…Smart Fix is intended to fix everything…at once, color and tonal values.…Down at the bottom of the Smart Fix panel, there is an Auto button.…
I'm going to click the Auto button, and…that did change the appearance of the photo.…To compare this version to the original, I'll go to…the View menu, and I'm going to choose before and after.…So, you can see that the after version is a lot less cool or blue.…And that there is more contrast, which you can see in the detail in the stairs.…I'm going to…save this version.…I'll go to the File menu, and I'll choose Save As.…And I'm going to change the suffix on this name to Smart Fix.…
