Photoshop Elements Techniques

October 12, 2007

Photoshop Elements Techniques is another favorite site of mine. The name is a mouthful so most of the friendly folks that populate this very active forum refer to it fondly as “PET”. Which can cause some confusion in real life, when someone asks you how you learned a particular trick with Photoshop Elements and you respond, “Oh I learned that over on the PET forum.”

This site is produced by the KW Media Group, the same folks behind the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. (If you want some great tips and a bit of humor check out PhotoshopTV on the NAPP site.) Although PET isn’t strictly a scrapping site, there is a scrapping subsection in the forum and scrapping tutorials in the subscriber section.

In addition to the free forum, there are weekly “Killer Tips” iTunes podcasts that you can also download directly to your computer if you don’t have iTunes.

A subscription to PET, includes a “newsletter” which is really a magazine and access to literally hundreds of video and written tutorials in the subscriber section. There are also additional in-depth on-line classes available and their 21 day course on using layers is very popular.

If you want to get a handle on all things related to Adobe Photoshop Elements this is the place!



  1. You’re right PET is a great place for anyone using Elements! The extras that come with the subscription are worth double the cost in my opinion. Not to mention there are some swanky freebies that you get when you resubscribe. The people there are super friendly and are always happy to help a newbie, too!

    Welcome to the Blog-World! This is a very inviting place you’ve set up here!


  2. Wow this looks really interesting and I’ve never heard of PET. I have both Photoshop CS and Elements and am trying to figure out which is easiest to use and I’ve come up with the fact that they are both difficult. I think I’ll have to check out this PET, it sounds like it would be such a big help.

    Thanks for the tip!
