Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Photoshop Elements tools overview, part of Learning Photoshop Elements 9.

I'd like to give you a quick overview of …the toolbox so you have a better understanding of what the tools are and …what they are used for. I'm beginning this lesson with the …Photoshop Elements Editor already open on my screen. …And the toolbox is located on the left side of the interface, right here. …Now the first section of the toolbox at the top, these 4 icons are the navigation …and measuring tools.

Simply clicking on the Hand tool allows …you to do that. The Eyedropper tool allows you to pick up …colors from your existing image and sample them to use them later on. …
