Adobe Photoshop Elements Tutorial: Lineart/ Color by painted-flamingo Adobe Photoshop Elements Tutorial: Lineart/ Color by painted-flamingo
I've been wanting to do an Elements tutorial for a while now because when I started using it I had a hard time finding any tutorials. It took me way longer to find out there is a VERY easy way to color in Elements too, and this is the thing I hope most people get from the tutorial because it will save you a lot of time, especially if you don't have a tablet.

So just some notes:

-You DON'T need a tablet for any of these steps
-Blue lines point out certain tools and things for that step
-This is a very simple tutorial
-This is just the way I do things, I'm not saying its the right or best way, its just what I use and it works best for me
-I used adobe PS elements version 8, it will likely work for other versions and other programs (like PS)
-If you want to add a background to your piece, just create a new layer UNDER your color (locked layer) and create away!

-an alternate to the "if you have any sections that have color that you want to be transparent" is to right click on the sections and select "add to selection." The step must be done BEFORE selecting the inverse.


Now please give me any questions you have. I tried to make this extremely easy to follow, so let me know if it is not. If there are typos, sorry but I flattened it to save space so won't be able to fix.


I'D LOVE TO SEE YOUR WORK! If you use this please link me to what you've created so I can fave it! No need to link back or anything unless you want to. All I ask is that you don't steal the tutorial itself

How do you do the lineart? because I don't think there's a pen stabilizer in photoshop elements... is there a line tool?

Nope I do it freehand, just lots of practice to make smooth lines. There are some things that will help with your lines though- I need to make quick tutorial for that some time

Oh okay, thanks for letting me know because I spent like half an hour trying to find the pen stabilizer.

Great work, I'll have to try this out and see how it cuts down on the time it takes to make something. Never knew about this and this is the first PSE8 tutorial I've seen, thanks.
