Mastering Adobe Elements Software

Adobe Elements doesn’t just have one single interface and is capable of launching the program in several different modes. There are a selection of different modes on Elements for different requirements like organizing photos, the full edit mode, the quick fix, and you can even produce your own photo album books.

If you are lucky enough to have the Adobe Elements 6 version you would have seen some extra really awesome features such as email, burning to CD or DVD, plus a real bonus is that the uncluttered interface. This certainly makes life a lot easier when you need to move round the screen.

Quick Fix Guide Mode: The quick mode enables you to make very basic alterations to your images as you can alter the following; Lighting, color, sharpen, and you also have the options to do a smart fix. Elements also gives you an auto fix button which can be found on the right hand side. Another way to access the adjustments buttons is through the Enhance menu.

Auto fixing is a real help if you’re a complete novice at image editing and if you’re after a quick fix to your image. Here are six great tools and features, that you will be able to dominate in a flash.

1 – Sometimes you’ll find your editing isn’t going the way it should be, so you can just hit the “Reset Button” on the after picture. 2 – If you need to show your before and after images, there’s a drop down button in the bottom left hand corner, which says “View”. 3 – Your tool box can be found on the left hand side of the screen. 4 – You can zoom in from your image on this page and the zoom button can be found in the bottom left hand corner. 5 – Your auto tab buttons can be found on the right hand side of the screen. 6 – Each quick mode gives you the option of using sliders.

The Adobe Elements full edit mode provides the necessary tools to change any of your photo images. The majority of the tools and commands are to be found in the palettes.

The palettes are used for managing your layers and applying effects to your images. By default the layers and effects palette are displayed automatically. If you wish you can also open more by choosing from the windows menu, which can be found at the top. Another really cool feature for the palettes is they float, so you can have them where you like. Once you have brought your image up, you’ll find below the main image window your images that you have opened.

Mastering Adobe Elements is not as difficult as you may think, and can even be achieved in just 2 hours. That is if you look over the shoulder of the Adobe Elements Guru “David Peters”, made possible by his step by step Adobe Elements video tutorials.

Monye: England can win Six Nations

Ugo Monye firmly believes England can upset the odds and win their first RBS 6 Nations title in seven years.

Harlequins wing Monye is urging his team-mates to defy their position as outsiders and believes they can win the tournament.

“We definitely should go into it thinking that we can win it,” Monye said.

“It will be difficult but I think it is definitely possible that we can win it. All we have to do is have the belief that we can do it.

“We have very high expectations of ourselves and just have to have the confidence to win it.

“We have a very good coaching staff and have to have belief within the playing staff that we can win it.

“We have players who are playing well for their teams domestically and we just need them to transfer that form onto the international stage.”

Head coach Martin Johnson named rugby league converts Shontayne Hape and Chris Ashton in his squad for the tournament and was in bullish mood about his side’s chances of success despite another dismal autumn campaign.

The last time England lifted the Six Nations trophy was in 2003 when Johnson captained Clive Woodward’s team through an unbeaten campaign that included a crushing 42-6 win over Ireland in the Grand Slam decider at Lansdowne Road.

Johnson went on to lift the William Webb Ellis trophy later that year and he now hopes the current squad can follow that same path to glory, with the next World Cup little over a year away.

Floyd Mayweather Jr insists on Olympic style drug testing which entails random urine and blood testing up until the day of the fight.  This is where the two sides disagree.  Pacquiao insists on a 24 day cut-off for random drug testing.  This was the sticking point in previous negotiations as Mayweather wanted a 14 day cut off.  This time around each side need to make some concessions in order for the big fight takes place.  This fight needs to happen because this is the bout everyone wants to see.

Will the Mayweather vs Pacquiao drug testing issue kill the fight again?

Both fighters dominated their previous opponents.  Pacquiao won a 12 round unanimous decison over Joshua Clottey back in March.  Mayweather took control of the fight after getting stung in the second round to secure an easy victory.

Mayweather and Pacquiao are best fighters in boxing right now and each has a right to lay claim to the sport’s pound for pound designation.  Boxing desparately needs a fight of this caliber to happen.  Its been a long time since boxing had a fight of this magnitude.  Hopefully the Mayweather vs Pacquiao issue won’t prevent this fight from happening.
