Crafty Secrets Linky Party and DT Challenge - Let's Hear it for the Boys!

June 1, 2015

Welcome to the June Crafty Secrets Linky Party and DT Challenge. This month we focused on all of the special men in our families.  For this masculine theme, I created a special layout to capture my guy's time together... father and son.  
I will be showing you how to change the hue and saturation of a photo in Photoshop Elements.  I used his to help blend the larger photo into the background paper. 
Open the photo file to be changed and then click on the Guided Tab at that top.  The select the Old Fashion Photo.

Then select the Add Hue Saturation button.

Next use the each of the sliders to adjust until you get the desired look.  Then click OK.

Click back to the Expert Tab and save the new file making sure name it a new name.  Then use the Move Tool to drag and drop into your artwork.
