Photoshop Elements 6 has a slick new interface with loads of great tools to help with all your image manipulation needs. I just received my copy of Elements 6 and had to give it a spin.
I decided to create a photo collage using a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge that was taken in the wonderful city of San Francisco over the past summer. I suppose using the term “collage” is a stretch, as this project will only use a single photograph; however it will make use of Photoshop Element’s powerful layers functionality.
The final project consisted of 3 layers: a background layer, a duplicate of the background layer, and a Hue/Saturation layer. The background layer was converted to a black and white image while the copy of the background layer had a Hue/Saturation layer applied just above it to really make the colors pop.
