How to use Photoshop Elements 3 to draw cartoons or paint pictures. The book includes a step-by-step 'quick start' section: a guide through the fundamental, no frills techniques necessary to draw and paint in Elements. This is a hands-on section introducing specific features for creating finished artwork, with no technical knowledge required. Later chapters elaborate on the different aspects of the programme, starting with those most useful to the drawing and painting processes, such as brushes and layers, followed by chapters on more esoteric subjects such as how to embellish work by using special effects. Finally, there are chapters on how to import images, such as drawings and photographs, and on how to output your work once it's finished, either by printing it out or by using it in emails or on the web.Madden, Chris is the author of 'Create Art and Cartoons in Photoshop Elements 3 ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780954855116 and ISBN 0954855116.
