Photoshop Elements Techniques was a publication that offered tips, tutorials and more for users of Adobe's Photoshop Elements. It was published from late 2004 through July 2016. We had a long, (mostly) fun ride, and we were sad to see it go. Unfortunately, the economics of publishing a small magazine were not in our favor at the end.

We owe an especially great debt of thanks to the tens of thousands of people who subscribed and renewed with us over the years—you made it easy and worthwhile for us to do our job day in and day out. We wish we could have gone on forever.

As a thank you to the community, we have made the back issues of Photoshop Elements Techniques available to download, free for personal use, on the Complete Digital Photography website. You can find the primary archive page at From that page, you can download individual issues (or articles), and find links to a searchable online index of articles, an index of cheatsheets from the video archives, links for downloading the complete archives, and an FAQ.

Please note that we won't be adding the videos from the old PET site, or doing anything further with Photoshop Elements. Check the FAQ on the CDP site for complete information about the project, as well as the licensing restrictions on the content therein. If you have questions, or wish to reach me, send an email to
