|Stacked images of car trails|

I recently read a new book from colleagues Gabriel Biderman and Tim Cooper called Night Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Peachpit Press, 2014). Along with fantastic advice about equipment, exposure and creative techniques for after the sun goes down, the book includes a last chapter with tips on processing your nocturnal images. There I read an easy way to improve the impact of car trail photos. While the directions use Lightroom and Photoshop, I discovered that with a minor change, I could create the same effect using Photoshop Elements. So for all my budget-minded friends, here's how to create the same effect using Elements 9 or newer.

When Adobe released Photoshop Elements 12, they finally included a long-missing feature: the ability to automatically fix "pet eye"! This changes the Red-Eye Removal Tool from looking for red pixels to looking for the green, blue, or yellow discoloration found when our camera's flash reflects off our pet's eyes.
