Similar to Adobe’s Creative Cloud, Adobe Photoshop Elements is available from the Adobe online store.
Adobe Photoshop Elements Features
Photoshop Elements is designed to be easy to use, and it is made specifically for people who don’t have professional skills or have an artistic background.
Here are some of the features you can enjoy with Photoshop Elements:
Swipe and Zoom Effects
To add depth to your images, you can use powerful swipe effects to simulate blowing up a picture or zooming in on part of the image.
You can add the zoom effect to a picture in just three simple steps:
Select the picture you want to manipulate. Set a zoom area.
In Photoshop Elements, you can select any area of the image using the Zoom tool as a guide. To apply a zoom effect to your image,
Press the A key on your keyboard to select the area you want to change. Choose the Zoom tool from the Tools menu. Press the M key to enter the magnification settings. (The zoom window will open to the center of the photo for you to select the area you want to magnify.)
You can use the zoom tool to zoom in or out, or you can create an entire new picture using any of the various objects and actions available in Photoshop Elements.
The Effects features are intended to help you give your images a unique look.
Add color to black-and-white photos: You can change black-and-white images to shades of gray, add color to a gray image, or remove color from black-and-white images.

Further studies should focus on the therapeutic interventions that improve work status, especially in terms of limiting lost workdays, leading to a better understanding of the disease and possible future improvements in the treatment of its clinical aspects, as well as the psychological and emotional aspects.
Thus, in conclusion, our study highlights the importance of the occupational and relational status of patients with IBD, since they were the lowest in our sample. The activities of daily living were highly influenced by the functional disability (higher in patients with CD), and professional (decreased in patients with CD). An improvement in the CD disease activity, the increase in the postoperative time, the short hospitalization, and the increased body mass index may contribute to the restoration of the social participation of patients with CD, highlighting the importance of self-care, which may be key to achieve an improvement in the working capacity of patients with CD.
An important limitation of our study is related to the lack of data on the physical activity and the diet. It is important to integrate strategies for physical activity and diet in a holistic approach to the correct management of these patients and not only focus on one aspect, as many professional associations suggest, promoting these conditions as the possible causes of the decrease in functional capacity and work ability. The “Patient-centered care,” proposed by the Brazilian Ministry of Health, 2015, it is recommended to provide this type of care to the patient and make it a priority for the health system. In this context, the nursing team plays an important role in promoting the quality of life for individuals with chronic diseases and to promote functional capacity \[[@CR58]\]. To date, little is known about the impact of the disease on the functioning of patients with ulcerative colitis. Current studies have considered patients with active ulcerative colitis and usually combined the diagnosis of rheumatologic disease with the one of UC \[[@CR59]\].

In this Photoshop tutorial, we’re going to dive into Photoshop’s manual retouching tool, the Content Aware Spot Healing Brush. This tool uses a mathematical algorithm to determine the best location to place the area you’re moving and then do the job efficiently and accurately.
Let’s get started.
Setting the tool preferences
Open the Brush Settings window via the options in the Adobe Photoshop Brush Tool dialog box (which you can show via the Brush tab in the Brush Tool).
Press the S key on your keyboard to bring up the Brush Settings window. If you’re using a Mac keyboard, you’d press the U key.
Select Content Aware from the available presets. This will be selected by default, but you can also do this from the drop-down box at the bottom.
Click OK to save your settings and exit the Brush Settings window.
The tool settings
First, we’re going to apply a solid fill to the area we want to repair.
Select the area you want to repair.
Select the Brush tool.
In the Brushes palette, select the Content Aware Spot Healing Brush tool.
Set the brush size to your liking. If you want to use a brush size that’s too big for your needs, simply zoom the canvas window in (or out).
Adjust the brush opacity. If you’re dissatisfied with the tool’s performance, you may need to reduce the brush opacity.
Set the tool blending mode to Normal. This is a good starting point for most repairs.
Next, we’re going to position our subject.
Now, we want to position the subject. In this example, we’re going to use the selection from the line tool.
Select the Line tool.
Click the cross-hairs.
Click on the selection from the line tool.
Make sure the selection is centered on the face, aligned with the eyes and mouth. You can zoom in or out via the zoom tool.
Now that we have the area of the subject selected, click the Brush window icon to bring up the Brush window.
Adjust the size, opacity and blend mode. Set the blend mode to Normal or Overlay.
Click the Lens Flare icon in the Content Aware window to enable Lens Flare, and set its strength. You can use a brush size of up to 100 pixels.
Position the brush tool over the subject. Using the cross-hairs, click
