Skill Level Beginner
The purpose of this course was to give you the basics that you need to get started using Photoshop Elements 10 to edit and organize your own digital photos. So what's next? Well first, I urge you to practice the techniques that I've shown you here. If you need a refresher on any of these techniques, you can always go back and listen to a particular movie in the course again. Once you're comfortable with the basics, take a look at some of the other features available in the Elements 10. For example, in the Editor you might go to the Guided tab, and check out some of the other step-by-step guided edits that there are there.
Or jump over to the Organizer, click on the Create tab, and look at some of the other photo creations that you can make in Elements, like photo books, and photo calendars. I do hope that you've enjoyed exploring the basics of Elements 10 with me here, and that this has gotten you to a point where you are really comfortable working in Photoshop Elements 10.
