In a lot of pictures you take, the background can seem to get in the way.  If you are someone who enjoys photography and has learned the ins and outs of camera aperture, you know how to tone-down the background by reducing the camera depth-of-field (which is done by opening the aperture). But if you happen not to be a geek photographer, there’s another way you can de-emphasize the backgound, and in many cases, do it more effectively than your camera ever could.

In this quick video tutorial, we show you how to use Photoshop Elements to down-play your photo’s background, and bring your subject to the forefront, capturing the full attention of your audience.
