* **The Photoshop interface**. Photoshop’s menu bar includes the following options, and your experience will be enhanced with familiarity:
• **File** is the place you enter files, commands, and settings.
• **Photoshop** opens the Image workspace, which is covered in a later section. Photoshop can automatically launch when you log in to the Internet, but to open the program in Windows, double-click its icon in the Start menu. In Windows 8, double-click its icon in the Metro Start screen; in Windows 7, open the program’s Start menu submenu, and you’ll find it there.
• **Image** contains tools to create, modify, and arrange images.
• **Draw** is a tool for creating and editing shapes and lines.
• **Edit**, which I discuss in the next section, enables you to make selections, correct mistakes, and produce new image areas for other tools.
• **Windows** opens Photoshop’s own workspace, which I discuss shortly, and also provides you with a variety of tools and menus for working with images.
• **Image Viewer**, displayed on the lower right of the Photoshop window, is where the current image you’re working on resides.
• **History** is a list of the recent selections and other commands you’ve executed.
• **Layers** is the place where you place layers onto the document. Layers enable you to stack different images and effect their appearance simultaneously.
• **Organizer** is a tool to help you manage the layers in your document. The Organizer’s thumbnail panel shows a preview of the image on which you’ve placed the layer or layers. In addition, you can add new layers, duplicate existing layers, hide or delete them, and move them around on the layer.
• **Info** has information about the file’s name, resolution, and other specifications.
• **Windows**, displayed in the window title bar, provides a workspace for making selections and managing tool palettes.
• **Blank** opens the Photoshop blank canvas (sometimes called an empty canvas) on which you draw your images.
• **Image** contains tools for creating and modifying images.
• **Draw** includes tools for making selections and removing pixels, and, if you are working in Photoshop CS6 or later, for adding 3

How to Edit Photos in Elements 101
The first step in editing photos in Photoshop Elements is adjusting the brightness and contrast of a photo. Contrast is the sharpness and brightness in an image.
Adjusting the brightness and contrast of an image can transform an ordinary photo into something that looks magnificent. Brightness and contrast are important image-editing tools that are used to make an image more vivid and enjoyable to view.
First, to start adjusting the brightness and contrast of an image, click the Adjustments button in the upper-right corner of the Photoshop Elements editor. The Adjustments interface appears.
The Adjustments interface
Choose Brightness/Contrast in the Adjustments panel (see image above).
In the Adjustments panel, use the Contrast slider to adjust the brightness and contrast of the photo. Drag the slider to the right to increase the image’s contrast. Drag the slider to the left to reduce its contrast.
Click OK to apply the changes.
Adjusting the brightness and contrast of an image will make it look more interesting.
