Photoshop Elements 15 Shadows/Highlights Command


The Shadows/Highlights command, available in Photoshop Elements, is an easy way to eliminate shadows from faces caused by the subject wearing a brimmed hat and or being backlit. It is also an excellent tool for editing a high contrast scene, for example a sunset that casts the foreground into shadows. If you duplicate the background layer, you can maintain a non-destructive editing workflow, as shown in the tutorial.

Photo of Mustard Flowers From My New DJI Mavic Pro Drone


I just upgraded from my DJI Phantom 2 V+ drone to a DJI Mavic Pro. The P2V+ served me well for the last 2-1/2 years. However, its embedded technology and software was outdated. The clincher was that its Wi-Fi transmitter module went bad. This is a common problem on the P2V+. It was going to cost over $300 to buy/install a new one.

After some research, I decided on the DJI Mavic Pro. It folds up quite nicely and can be carried in a modest camera bag, rather than a suite case.

Below is a photo from my second flight today. It is amazing what some rain will do. The SE side of Palos Verdes is covered with new mustard flowers as shown here. Since it is my second drone, I am pretty comfortable with it already. However, with the new technology, remote controller, and software, I have a lot to learn. I will be posting more photos and articles sharing my experiences in future posts.

Coming soon is my next Photoshop Elements 15 tutorial. So, until next time….

Eliminating Haze in Photoshop Elements 15


PSE 14 introduced the Haze Removal command. In this video tutorial, I will being demonstrating the command using Photoshop Elements 15. The command has two modes. You can use it in its fully automatic mode, or manually adjust its strength and sensitivity if you choose.

depending upon the image, the results are often similar to those obtained using the Auto Levels command.  However, the Haze Removal results are generally better, depending upon the targeted image.
