It is not necessary to use Photoshop in Photoshop Elements. However, it’s a tremendous advantage if you do use the creative features of Elements with the editing functions of Photoshop. In addition, you can open and edit a Photoshop file with the file browser in Elements and save files from Elements to Photoshop.

Learning Photoshop With Digital Photography
Photoshop is an amazing (and powerful) editor that is perfect for most photographers who need to create images and more. And with Photoshop Elements, you can achieve similar things with a much friendlier software.
Elements is intended for the casual photographer, the individual with a budget, or the amateur who just doesn’t want to be overwhelmed by a 50,000 feature software.
With no subscription costs and a light software footprint, Photoshop Elements is the perfect alternative to Photoshop for beginners. It even works on older computers that may not be able to use the full version of the software.
My Personal Favorites
As a photographer and photographer-slash-web-designer, I would say that Photoshop is a must-have tool for any serious graphic designer. It’s the perfect software for editing, designing and creating images. If you’re not familiar with Photoshop, it’s a good place to start learning.
There are so many powerful tools included in the suite, including:
Automatic Red Eye
Various picture and picture editing tools
Elements is a great alternative to Photoshop, especially for photographers. It’s more simple to use than Photoshop and is great for casual or hobbyist photographers.
Photoshop Elements doesn’t have the scope or power of the real Photoshop, but its casual interface is a great tool to get started with editing photos.
Below are some of my favorite features and tools of the program.

You can use a lot of tools in Photoshop Elements, and you can even add custom tools from third-party software. By editing menus, you can make your own personal additions to the program that enhance your efficiency.
Some of the features you might want to add to Photoshop Elements include:
Custom keyboard shortcuts
I like to add my own keyboard shortcuts into Photoshop Elements. I can use these shortcuts to organize my tools and add a sense of order to the program.
One of my favorite features of Photoshop Elements is the ability to open multiple photos in a single file and edit them simultaneously with custom options. You can open multiple photos in a single document or page and edit each one as you
1. Field of the Invention
This invention relates to machines for reducing foods, and more particularly, to an automatic food chopper wherein a food, contained in a plastic bag, is turned upside down, cut open to expose its underside, and then a metal blade pushes the contents of the bag in a straight down motion toward a metal grid located below the bag.
2. Description of the Prior Art
Heretofore, food choppers have been developed wherein a food, such as, a leg of a chicken or an ear of a pig, can be reduced into pieces of like size and shape. The chopper disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 4,167,723 includes a housing with a plastic bag mounted therein which folds over and encloses the food when it is inserted into the housing. A pair of V-shaped projections extends from the housing adjacent the bottom of the bag to assist in guiding the food downwardly into a pair of cutting elements which scrape the food, thereby reducing the same to pieces of like size and shape. The cutting elements are generally a pair of elongated plates spaced apart from one another and located at opposite sides of the machine. A pair of rotating blades extend between and above the plates. The food bag is provided with a number of openings therein to allow its contents to be reduced and prepared for cooking. A clamping mechanism secures the ends of the food bag as the bag is withdrawn from the housing. The food bag is dispensed with the clamping mechanism and a drive mechanism, which may be a spring-loaded sliding plate on the housing, maintains the bag at an upright position and adjacent the housing. When a food product such as chicken legs is inserted into the housing through a slot in the rear of the housing, the bag unfolds and the food is enclosed therein.
U.S. Pat. No. 4,168,978 discloses a food chopper wherein a supply of food is held in a housing in a position above a housing cover. A discharge slot is located in the housing cover and communicates with a discharge opening in the housing through which the chopped food is removed. A motor drive shaft is connected to an arm which is mounted in the cover. The arm is moved upwardly to force the food downwardly and toward the discharge slot located in the cover. A pair of jaws are spaced apart and located adjacent the top surface of the food in a position to grasp the food. An upper portion of the arm is mounted on a shaft which is connected to a
1. Tiling brush – merges pixels of similar color to produce a smooth layer of color
2. Fiber – produces beautiful marbled-like effects, using the random walk tool.
3. Pen tool – can be used for vector drawing and pen/ink strokes in your image.
4. What you see – shows the path of the pixel when the brush (or pen) is drawn
For one of my paintings I used a ripple brush and multiple colors and wanted the ripple to make a pattern.
5. Patterns/Drops – is a pre-designed set of ripple brush shapes and colors. These can be very helpful for quick, and repetitive effects.
