This weekend, I found myself with a new lens; a birthday gift from my husband. Naturally, I couldn’t wait to get outside and play with it! Then, all of this play reminded me just how important it is to experiment, try new things, make mistakes, and play.
Of course, this reminded me of the various ways in which you can play in Photoshop Elements, too. And, I thought a post with links to some fun tutorials would be just the thing.
So today, my wish for you is to play, have fun, and discover a bunch of great techniques in the process!

- In Hue Adjustment for Black & White? You Bet! I share a technique that arrived during one of my own Photoshop Elements play dates.
- Matt Kloskowski’s Adding Whimsical Scribbles to a Photo encourages playful doodle art.

Happy creating and have fun!
