Photoshop Elements

The secret is out... I use Adobe Photoshop Elements to edit and enhance my photographs. But I am just a basic user of the software. My friend Clyde is an accomplished photographer who is a more knowledgeable user of Photoshop. Yesterday, he come over to give me some pointers on Layers, a feature which I never understood. One of the many things you can do with Layers is add a mat and drop shadow to a photograph. I think it really sets off the photo nicely and I plan on using it more often. Here is a comparison of a photo from the Barcelona collection, the first without the mat and the second with a mat and drop shadow. Click on image to enlarge.
