My friend and muse Ms. Jana creates wonderful video tutorials using Photoshop. They are easy to follow and really show you how to take things like brushes, gradients, photo masks and such to a whole new level to really make your layouts standout. You can find Jana HERE for more tutorials.
She is not using Photoshop Elements, but Photoshop. But, you should be able to follow along just the same. It’s nothing overly complicated.
The first tutorial is is how to use brushes, textures and masks together with gradients. You can watch her create a layout using these techniques. Just click on the video and watch…hope you enjoy!
This second tutorial is another way to use gradients.
