Photoshop Elements delivers a range of tools to help you bring out the potential in a photo, despite its flaws. The same tricks and techniques that enable you to remove or reposition an inconveniently placed object, retouch spots and blemishes in a portrait, or restore a treasured keepsake by repairing creases and tears can also be used creatively to manipulate reality in order to produce exactly the image you want.
