This next tutorial is again from the EasyPSE iTunes App from the Apple iTunes Store (there’s a shock for you!).   We’ll have an in-depth look at the Photoshop Elements Colour Pallet. Much of this is identical to that found in Photoshop CS, but with a couple of things, such as the CMYK workspace, absent. […]

Create a collage
Sunday, February 12th, 2012

About time we had a project from the EasyPSE iTunes App from the Apple iTunes Store.   This is a simple project in which several images are blended into one to form a collage. In this example I’ve used some photos from a holiday to Thailand, but you could use this for just about anything […]

Spot Healing Brush
Monday, February 6th, 2012

Another video from the EasyPSE iPhone/iPad video tutorial app, available on the Apple iTunes Store.   I don’t like the style of over air brushed images you typically find on magazine covers.

Camera Buying Guide
Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

Buying your first, or a new, digital camera can be heaps of fun, but it can also be a bit of a nightmare if you don’t know the terminology or what features matter more than others. Everyone wants a camera for their own reasons and, as with most things in life, there is no definitive […]
