This includes an exercise where you create a slide show worthy of a professional presentation. Next we learn the many functions of The Organizer including catalogs, media browser, timelines, instant fix, image properties and much more. We cover Acquiring Content and Printing before getting to the heart of PSE 14: The Editor. This is where you learn how to create a workspace and manipulate your content for desired results. Later we look at editing in Expert Mode. Along the way we study the often used Quick Mode where you can instantly remove red eyes, add effects, textures, frames, and auto smart tone. As you progress we study Guided Editing where you resize photos and perform guided edits on image properties. Later we work on filters, lighting, adding text, text effects, color effects and much more as we advance through the massive 15 hours of instruction that take you through every detail of Photoshop Elements 14.
