Millions of people own digital cameras, yet most of us just store our digital photos on a hard drive or email them to friends. But what if you want to get a little more creative with your images? Armed with little more than a copy of Photoshop Elements, a computer, an inkjet printer, and a handful of basic tools, you can transform your digital photos into beautiful, custom-made crafts. Written by designer and Photoshop guru Elizabeth Bulger, The Adobe Photoshop Elements Crafts Book will motivate you to get creative with your own images while learning basic Photoshop Elements skills along the way. Each project begins with a list of the tools and materials you’ll need to get started. From there, full-color photographs, clear instructions, and numbered steps walk you through every step of the project. You’ll learn how to create unique crafts out of a variety of materials, including paper, ceramic, metal, glass, fabric, and polymer clay. Whether you’re a longtime D.I.Y. devotee or completely new to crafting, this book will show you everything you need to create attractive, unique keepsakes for you or your family and friends to cherish.

  • Get your photos ready for projects: Learn how to import, edit, crop, and apply quick fixes to your images
