Photoshop Elements Techniques back issues

Welcome to the Photoshop Elements Techniques (PET) magazine archives. Here, you’ll find PDFs of 85 issues published from 2004 through 2016, along with any sample files associated with each issue. Each issue is listed below, with the list of articles in that issue, and links to download the PDF and the extras files. The extras are compressed as ZIP archives, which should expand properly on both Windows and Mac computers.

These issues (and extras) are free for personal use, but may not be sold, reposted, or redistributed. The copyrights for all of the content remains with the individual authors and CDP Press. (See our FAQ for more information.)

To help you look for articles by subject, author, title or tag, we have also created an online index page for PET, including an alphabetical list of article titles, a list by author, and by tag. Each article listed in the index has a link back to the issue page where that article can be found.

Note about downloading

This page and the index have been designed to help people looking to get a specific article or issue of Photoshop Elements Techniques. If you wish to download all of the issues, we have created a set of links to make the process easier (for you, and our web server.)
