They're basically wizards that use tools within the app. If you knew what you were doing, you wouldn't need the Guided Edits to create these effects, but we don't all have MFAs. A gallery of Guided Edits shows sample images of what they do, and swiping the cursor over these reveals the before and after. There are also tabs for different effect types, like Basics, Color, and Fun. There are now over 50 Guided Edits in all enough that it would be nice if you could search for them. Below I take you through a few of the newer and cooler Guided Edits. Not everyone is a fan of memes, and I realize that this definition of the term—to mean a photo with big text—is a dumbing-down of what the word actually means.

But those images with the big text can be effective. Element's Meme-Maker tool puts a colorful radiating background to your photo along with adding that big block-letter text. You can change the background and optionally apply a few different filters, including newsprint and one similar to the famous Obama Hope poster designed by Shepard Fairey using a photo by Mannie Garcia. Multi-Photo Text.

A while back the video editing programs were all adding features that could create text using your video content. The twist with this new image tool is that you can use multiple photos for the letters in your text. You can either add a photo for each letter, or preload the Photo Bin and have them flow automatically into the text. You can then choose a solid background color.

I could see this being an effective tool for organizations' flyers and posters. Partial Sketch.

As you brush the effect onto an area of your photo, similar textures are selected. You can subtract painted areas to taste. You can flip the painted and nonpainted areas for a different look, and soften the effect's edges. I suppose some users might have fun with this one, but to be honest it doesn't do much for me. Text and Border Overlay.

See a Problem?

This Guided Edit merely takes two editing tools and puts them into a wizard. You don't get a large selection of border styles or text fonts, but if you need guidance in applying these two edits and don't want to mess with layers, you may find it useful. Replace Background.

This Guided Edit takes advantage of the classic Photoshop technology allowing you to select an object, create a mask, and drop in a background layer. Of course, the wizard saves you from having to know how to do this with standard Photoshop tools. You start by using any of the selection tools see Advanced Tools, below to select the person you want in the foreground. Next, you import a photo for the background, or choose a texture or preset included in the tool. After your new background is in place, the final step in the wizard is to save or share your creation.

Alternatively, the wizard lets you open the image in the editor for further tinkering. I'm far from being an artist, so if this tool can make me look like one, it will have accomplished quite a feat. In fact, Painterly doesn't require any artistic ability at all. What it does is to use your existing photo for brush strokes. You get five brush styles, and after applying one and removing unwanted areas , you can choose a background canvas texture and optionally apply a painterly filter, such as watercolor.

Again, this is a fun, easy way to create a more compelling image than your typical snapshot. Speed Pan. With this one, you use the Quick Selection tool to quickly select the subject that will be speeding, then tap the Add Motion Blur button, choosing angle and intensity. Many Photoshop effects involve selecting objects precisely, and either adding or removing them to or from an image.

With the Auto Selection tool, you draw a rectangle or shape over the object you want to select, and the tool determines your object's edges. The earlier Quick Selection tool has you scribble on the object you want to select. I still prefer Quick over Auto, since getting the right shape size and placement is a tad trickier than simply scribbling over the object.

All the selection tools offer a Refine Edge option, which uses a circle with inner and outer selection circumferences. The brilliance of the tool is that it switches between adding and subtracting from your selection depending on whether you're inside or outside the original selection. You can also hover the tool right over the edge to have Photoshop Elements refine the selection for you—that usually means adding those stray hairs to it.

The tool worked impressively on a photo of my niece's Shih Tzu puppy. The Photomerge Group Shot tool lets you get the best expression on each person from a series of group shots. You can, for example, give one person's face their eyes from another shot. Scene Cleaner lets you remove passers-by from a landscape or famous site. Exposure, also called high dynamic range HDR , fixes by using two or more shots to combine the best version of, say, the clouds in the sky from one picture, and a forest below from a second shot.

The Photomerge Panorama tool offers lots of control, creating a full panorama rather than one with twisted edges.

It even fills in empty areas left by the photos and stitching—to impressive effect in my testing—but it can take a long time to do its work. You won't find that filling option in other software. These offer a really cool and easy way to make a sky bluer or darken areas of an image. One trick missing is CyberLink PhotoDirector's Multiple Exposure, which can automatically build impressive action images with multiple instances of your protagonist. Finally, one tool that has come down from Photoshop is Shake Reduction.

This can automatically sharpen shots in which you shook the camera slightly. It gives you the same control as the Photoshop tool, letting you select the area you want to correct. Adobe claims faster performance for this year's version of Photoshop Elements. In testing, it responded quickly for most typical editing tasks, and on my timed import test, it was well within the acceptable range. Each file weighed in at about MB. Elements posted a minutes:seconds time on the test—in the middle of all the photo apps I've tested. AfterShot Pro took , but that was just for adding photos to its database and creating previews, without actually moving the image file data.

Elements offers the most output options of any consumer photo editor—whether you're into creating slideshows, sending picture emails, printing via Shutterfly, burning discs, or uploading to web galleries. You can directly upload to online photo sites, including Flickr and Twitter. I would like to see more social outlets here, such as Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr.

One minor disappointment is that Elements' own keyword tags don't carry over into Flickr, though you can add tags at the time of uploading. Elements' photo slideshows are actually videos. You can start creating one from either the Organizer or by selecting images in the editor and choosing the Create drop-down. You can change the background music and add or remove images to taste, but the slideshow is generated automatically and starts playing right away, so your layout choices are limited.

The tools in Apple Photos and Microsoft Photos actually offer more customization at this point, with more canned music choices and control over slide duration. A final quick word about help: I'm not a big fan of Adobe's Web-only help system.

Photoshop Elements 2019 Review: What's new in this version and should you upgrade?

Character-styling options are far less extensive than those in Photoshop, however. The Recompose tool is one of the program's most impressive: It lets you change the aspect ratio of an image without stretching or squashing faces and the like. You can even remove selected objects and mark others for preserving. Recompose did a good job letting me move my big head closer to a friend without distorting a test picture, though I did have to crop the photo to remove a duplicate head. You can also do standard Photoshop things, such as blur, sharpen, and add imagery.

There's a good selection of clipart, too. The spot-healing brush does an excellent job at removing blemishes. I also removed a sign in the background of a photo by brushing in the texture from a forest in the image with the healing brush. When you open a raw file from a DSLR, the program starts out in a separate Adobe Camera Raw window, where you have access to color, exposure, and detail, controls.

It does include the new raw Profiles like Color, Portrait, and Vivid, along with noise reduction, but Elements has no chromatic aberration correction. There are also lens distortion corrections, but they don't use profiles to base automatic corrections on your equipment the way Lightroom and DxO PhotoLab do. The raw importer actually has red-eye reduction and cropping, which seems like an unnecessary duplication of what's in the editor app. The Adjust Facial Features tool is accessible from the Enhance menu. Open this, and a window pops up with all the faces circled.

A right-side panel offers adjusters for Lips with Smile and related sub-choices , Eyes, Nose, and Face. The last lets you change the forehead height, jawbone shape, and chin height. Just as with the similar tool introduced in the latest version of Photoshop CC , you can have a lot of fun with this. It does a great job identifying the facial features and convincingly modifying them. It's probably best to use these tools sparingly unless you want your friends looking like strangers. Open Closed Eyes is a cool tool that debuted in the version. You find it under the Enhance menu in either Quick or Expert mode.

When you open a photo in Open Closed Eyes, you see circles around any faces in the image, with the closed-eye faces highlighted. Then you have to choose an eye source—the fixed open eyes needn't come from the same person's face as the one with closed eyes! Believe me, if you do this with the glamor model sample eye source photos Adobe provides, you'll likely be in for some laughs. When using the same person's eyes, the results are decent; the closer the shot of the source eyes to the shot you want to open eyes on the better. I still wish Adobe included some type of refinement tools, to get the lighting and detail closer to the original's.

If nothing else, Open Closed Eyes is a fun trick. Guided Edits are one way that Elements helps novices create advanced, pro-level Photoshop Effects. They're basically wizards that use tools within the app. If you knew what you were doing, you wouldn't need the Guided Edits to create these effects, but we don't all have MFAs.
