    The flashes from cheap snapshot camera tend to make a photo look cold
    compared to the more ecpensive flash camera which add warmth to the
    photo. Using Photoshop elements is there a way of improving on a photo
    taken by a cheap snapshop camera with its build in flash gun so it
    might look like a photo taken by the flash of a more ecpensive camera?

    Regards Brian

    You can't make global changes in Elements to make a bad picture good.
    You can use the Temperature slider in "Quick Fix" to warm up an image.
    This does nothing for the shadows and uneven lighting of inadequate
    flash lighting, though.

    That's white balance in the camera, not the flash.
