For readers using Elements, most of the previously mentioned controls are the same. However, elements also offers the options to work in a different editing mode-Quick Fix. Accessed on the top right of the screen, it provides a speedy method of using many of Photoshop's tools and functions. It also provides several automated controls for controlling contrast and color. While standard Edit is preferred for most work, there can be times when Quick Fix is useful to make very minor changes.
- Quick Fix work space. In Quick Fix, the complete screen is filled by the work-space, with controls for General Fixes, Lighting, Color, and Sharpening to the right, and some tools to the left. Open images from either the Open icon or from the File menu. Many of the color effects used with the Standard Edit can be found in the Menu bar.
- View. There are four possible viewing modes, and this is one of the most useful features found in Quick fix. After only will display each change to the image as it is made. And before, Only will show how the original file looked when it was opened. It is useful sometimes to use this to look back to see how much work has been done. Before and After (Portrait) and before and after (Landscape) display both these modes together, either vertically or horizontally, so comparisons can be made easily.
