Have you ever looked at them and wondered, "How did they do that?" Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements for Teens is filled with the tips and techniques that you need to know to use these powerful programs to create your own amazing images or retouch your digital photographs. Begin with the fundamentals of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements as you conquer the essential features and functions of each program. Master the interface and learn how to create and manage layers.
