Video Removing Red Eye


Here is another one of my cruise-backup videos that demonstrates how to remove red eye. The video was made using PSE 6, but it is essentially the same using later versions. The video is showing the Red Eye Removal tool be used from the Quick Fix window, but it works the same when you access the tool from the Full Editor.

Also, I would suggest that to watch the video, right click on the link below. Then from the pop-up menu, select Save Target As and download the file to your Desktop. Once it is there,  double click on its icon. When the window appears, click on the play button in the center.  Click or better yet right click here.

Please leave a comment and let me know how your viewing of the video went, and whether or not it was helpful.

Thanks,

Don

Old But Maybe Useful Video Tutorials


With Adobe announcing PSE 8 and PRE 8 a couple of days ago, a lot of my reference material and tutorials need to be updated. In going through my files I came across several video tutorials I had made describing PSE 6. I have never shared these for the most part, some for obvious reasons. 🙂 Most were put together as backup or to augment my cruise lectures I gave last year. However, there are a few that even though they were made using PSE 6, they are still useful. The tool or command has not changed in PSE 8.

I decided I better share these before they become totally obsolete. They may not be the best quality, but hey, you can’t beat the price. For the most part, they are in SWF format. This format opens up in your browser. However, depending upon your browser security level, you may have to click once or twice through a warning screen. The first one may be a thin yellow bar at the top of your screen.

I am not going to put them all in this post. I want to see how it goes. Please leave comment and let me know if you were able to view the video and whether or not you found it helpful, Ok?   

The first covers using the Shadows and Highlights command from the Guided Edit panel. It may take many seconds before the video frame loads. When it does, click on the play button in the center of the thumbnail.

    Here is the link.

Let me know what you think.

Adobe Announces Photoshop Elements 8


As you may know, I have been a beta tester for Adobe’s Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements for the past few years. For several months now we have been testing both Photoshop Elements 8 and Premiere Elements 8. Because of the non-disclosure agreements, I have not been able to discuss what the new versions contain. All that has ended.

Yesterday, Adobe announced both products for Windows and Mac. The Windows version is available for download now from Adobe. The Mac version should be available shortly. On their web site, there was no mention of availability in stores. My guess is the programs will be in stores in a matter of a couple of weeks or so.

I will have more to say about the program in future posts. But for now, if you are interested in seeing what it includes, click here. This will take you to Adobe’s page describing the programs.

More later.

16:9 Borderless Slide Show – Quick Update


I apologize for the confusing formating of yesterday’s post. I tried to send the formatting I laid out in Word to my blog, but somewhere along the way the step numbering got messed up. I’ve since cleaned it up a bit.

Also, I’ll have more to say about this in the next installment, but for now, make sure you do the following. When you begin to make your slide show in the Organizer’s Slide Show Editor, set the flag to crop landscape pictures in the Slide Show Preferences dialog box.

Until next time,

Don
