Adobe Elements: Best Graphics Editing Software

You're not getting the best mileage out of your Valentine graphics if you're not using graphics editing software.

You can resize your graphics. Combine images. Add text. Strip the images down for use on the Web. Add filters and special effects. Add drop shadows. Correct color. Change the color of part of an image. Convert an image to black and white. Cut out unattractive parts that you don't want to use. And so much more.

You will find tips and examples of graphic editing at my article on Thanksgiving Clipart. Click here to visit it.

      @julieannbrady: What a romantic day to marry! I think a DIY wedding is so much nicer than something planned by professionals. Thanks for stopping by.

      Do you know that Valentine's Day is our wedding anniversary? And, when we were planning the day, I was looking for lots of graphics online as we put together our own DIY wedding. I even bought my dress through an eBay auction! It was totally put together from online resources.
