Trying to Figure Out Photo Editing

Seriously, this whole blog could be titled “Trying to figure Out Photo Editing”.

I have learned a lot about Photoshop Elements, but after viewing a myriad YouTube tutorials, I have realized that I actually know very little. Again, please reference any previous posts on this blog and you’ll see that I have a lot to learn. However, I do know more about photo editing than most people in my life so I find myself foolishly volunteering to apply my PE skills when they are needed.

For my mother-in-law’s birthday and Mother’s Day gift, us “kids” conspired to take a family photo. I took the miraculous* photo with my trusty remote and then set off to editing it in Photoshop Elements. Here’s my edit… what do you think?

*Have you ever taken a family photo with a 3 and 1 year old and they BOTH had a decent face?


I am not thrilled with our skin coloring (I look green?)… so I still have to dive in to YouTube vids to learn more.

FYI- my MIL really seemed to like it!

Helpful Tip: Make sure when you get a photo printed you double check that standard frames come in that size!

  1. Like it?? I LOVE it! Lindsay, you are so talented…I thought they had gone to a professional studio at first! But – I know my four kids (can’t judge on the grandsons yet) and they would never spend that kind of money…so the first words out of my mouth were “Oh!! How did you DO this?!” I just keep staring at it…best present ever!
