The Mixer Brush Tool with Pete Collins
Join Pete Collins as he takes you on a walk through of the incredibly powerful Mixer Brush Tool. The key to getting the most out of the Mixer Brush is in understanding the four key settings that determine just how your strokes will look. Pete takes you through all of the options, shows you how each option works in concert with the others, how to leverage the built-in tool presets, and how to customize them to make your own brushes. Once you get the hang of the Mixer Brush you'll find that you can create strokes, details, and looks that you just can't get any other way.

The Photoshop Elements 13 Book for Digital Photographers
We just got our first copies of the brand new Photoshop Elements 13 Book for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski in! This book breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that's never been done before-it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly "how to do it." It's not a bunch of theory; it doesn't challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure things out on your own. Instead, it does something that virtually no other Elements book has ever done-it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why.

You can pick up your copy here, or from wherever great books are sold. And leave a comment for your chance to win one of three free copies we’ll give away right here next week!
