This new guided edit is incredibly easy, unlike some other meme-based guided edits from the last few years that involved numerous steps. Here, you just choose an image, select a background and type in your phrase. There are a few fancy background choices, though nowhere near enough, and you can also add a solid color frame of any hue if you choose.
And there are some restrictions on the special effects you can add: You can convert the original image to black-and-white or sepia or convert part of the photo into a drawing, but that's about it. The meme maker is a quick and dirty way to get your post up quickly, and that suits me just fine.
Quick and dirty meme maker gets memes posted with a few clicks. Adobe Photoshop Elements' meme maker is a quick and dirty way to get your post up quickly, and that suits me just fine. Partial Sketch: This operation allows you to produce mixed-media creations from your photos by converting parts of the image into line drawings while leaving the rest as a photographic image.
You get four choices: A quick selector lets you choose where to apply the effect. You can choose only one effect at a time, so there's no mixing or layering of effects. But you can experiment with which ones look best with your image or invert the effect before saving. It would be very cool to be able to mix more than one effect in a picture. You get four choices of media to sketch with.
Text and Border Overlay: This is an attractive feature you can use to annotate a single shot. It somewhat resembles previous overlay-style guided edits in that it facilitates ornamentation — in this case several border options and text — without obscuring the photo. Although you can resize the border and text and make them a different color, the border cannot be moved to any place in the image you want — it stays aligned to the border.
Text and border overlays add a sophisticated annotation to your images. You can use any font in your system to add text to the design, choose from a number of built-in styles, and make both the border and text any color you want.
You have to take care in how you select the default text — Elements won't let you group-select and replace the default lettering, but rather you must remove or replace at least one letter before being able to group-replace the text. You can then position the text block at four corners or the middle of the image. Adding text is a one-shot deal. If you change your mind about the text after you saved it, you have to start all over again. It would be nice if the undo functioned in this context, but it's not that big a deal.
AI Collages and Slideshows When you launch Elements, the app sorts through all images and videos in the Organizer to automatically generate slideshows and collages.
The collage feature was quite easy to use in the previous version of Elements, but it has been even more streamlined in the edition, aided by a boost in automation. New templates make collages beautiful and easy to create. For richer color-to-grayscale conversions, use the new Convert to Black and White command. Start with one of six presets, and then tweak individual sliders for maximum contrast.
Photographers will appreciate increased Raw support with version 4. This dynamically updatable plug-in features a filmstrip view, which lets you apply adjustments and presets to multiple shots in one fell swoop. The new Recovery slider for highlights and Blacks slider for darkening blacks are useful for adding definition and depth and making photos pop.
You can also save conversion settings for later use in Bridge, where you can apply them to multiple photos. The ever-expanding Effects palette rounds out the editing features and contains a plethora of color tints, drop shadows, type, and other photo treatments. Oddly, however, these effects require a double-click, though large buttons typically require just one. Merging madness For years, Elements users have been happily stitching photos into wide-angle beauties using PhotoMerge Panorama.
In version 6, Adobe has added two new merge tools to the mix: One of the most challenging aspects of photographing groups of people is capturing a moment in which everyone is smiling at the same time with their eyes open. Simply choose one photo called the master as a starting point, and then, using the highlighter tool, mark areas of the other photos you wish to merge. Grab a smile from one photo and a set of eyes from another, and Elements will take as much of that person or object as necessary to blend it seamlessly into the master shot.
PhotoMerge Faces creates a single face from the features of two different ones. Laying it out The new Create workspace is all about building projects. Myriad themes, backgrounds, textures, graphic elements, photo frames, and type effects are included in the Artwork palette to help inspire creativity.
However, I found the themes and backgrounds to be fairly cheesy, though the frames and graphical elements are surprisingly nifty. You can also add your own art to the collection by placing it in the corresponding folders on your hard drive. Drag a background onto the page, and Elements places it accordingly.
You can resize and enlarge frames without sacrificing image quality. Double-clicking a photo within a frame reveals resizing and repositioning controls just like in iPhoto , and clicking the frame itself lets you resize and move it around on the page unlike in iPhoto, where layouts are fixed.
Sharing your work Last but not least, you can use the new Share workspace to get your masterpieces off of your computer and into the hands of others.
If you choose E-mail Attachments, Elements will resize images if they are deemed too large for transport, launch your e-mail client, create a new message, and attach the photos—all in a matter of seconds. You need only enter a recipient. Perhaps in the future Adobe will consider adding FTP capabilities; it would be rather handy to publish a gallery to a Web server or other photo service straight from Elements.
February 5, , Providing many professional level features, it includes layers, customizable brushes, filters, and automatic image enhancement tools for those short on time. It further expands its potential through a huge number of plugins, thanks to its very active community. New features are commonplace, while bugs are few and far between. The downside? While Photoshop is instantly accessible, GIMP requires a little tweaking and manipulation to get things how you like them to look, although recent updates have made it look more like its main competition.
