As many of you know, I’ve teamed up with Adobe Photoshop Elements as an ambassador over the last few months. It’s been a really fun experience to learn about the program from the very best and I hope you’ve liked learning about it as well!

Today I’m hosting a giveaway for three readers to win copies of the brand new Photoshop Elements 11 which isn’t even out yet! I’ve had a chance to test it out and really love the changes they’ve made and the new features they’ve added. I think you’ll love it to. Below are the giveaway details:

Leave a comment on this post to enter to win. You can leave an additional comment by: liking Say Yes to Hoboken’s facebook page, or pinning an image from my site to Pinterest (or both! for two additional comments). Just let me know in the additional comments which you did. The giveaway is open through Wednesday night, October 3rd  at 10pm PST. The winner will be announced on this post the next day.

Include your email in your comment if it’s not linked to your name, please.
-Alternative winner will be chosen if you don’t claim your win within 3 days

Keep reading to see how I used the new vignette feature in Elements 11…

Open your image in Elements and click on the Guided tab at the top (don’t you love the new gray screen?). Then select vignette effect from the list on the right hand side.

Follow the instructions on the right, click on the ‘black’ button and your image will be pretty dark around the edges.  You can move the intensity over to the left a bit to lessen the effect.

Click on Redefine Shape and move the feather up all the way so the edges aren’t so harsh. When you’re happy with the result, click done!

You can see the difference above when you look at the before and after view. I like vignettes for portraits and darker rooms.

Big thanks to Adobe for this opportunity to be an ambassador for their Photoshop Elements software! I’ve had fun learning all about it the last few months. Check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

This is so rad! I’ve been using my new DSLR a ton and I’d love to have Photoshop to fiddle around with my photos.

Amazing giveaway! Would love to win!!! I liked your facebook page and pinned the photo transfer tote 🙂

Photoshop Elements rocks. Would be great to be one of the winners. Liked you on facebook.

I too like the vignette feature in editing “softwares”. However, this vignette appears out of place in this image as it passes through the brighest portion of the image on the wall and window. A better image may have illustrationed your post better.

Learning Photoshop would be wonderful- and since I can’t afford it myself, I am so thankful for this giveaway!! Oh, oh, pick me pick me!

What a great giveaway! I would love to win because we don’t currently have a photoshop program…

Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway. Would love to win. xo.
