    Are you an experienced or professional digital photographer? If

    Are you an experienced or professional digital photographer? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Philip Andrews, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that provides you with not only the knowledge about how the various features and tools work, but also helps you understand what to do with your images and make sound decisions regarding which editing feature to use and by how much.

    Andrews, begins by going back to basics and seeing how factors like resolution and numbers of colors affect the quality of image capture. Next, the author looks at the various tools, functions and interface components that make up Photoshop Elements. Then, the author shows you how the smart digital photographer will reap the rewards of time spent working with their image collection in Organizer, and how they will be able to find the images they need faster and easier than ever before. He continues by discussing how with Organizer (now available for Mac users as well), Mac users will have access to all of the great features in the Instant Fix pane. Next, the author covers those projects that are listed in the Create pane. Then, he explores the Share menu, which contains a series of photo projects that can be used to showcase and distribute your images. The author continues by showing you how to switch to the Raw file format; and, how shooting can provide you with the highest detail photos ever. Next, he explores the good place to start, when wanting to move from the simple single button, to making a change approach of the Organizer’s Fix pane, to the fuller enhancement environment of the Guided Editing workspace. The author continues by looking into the second level of editing, which sits in the middle ground between total user control and total program control over the editing results. Next, he takes you step-by-step through basic picture adjustments and enhancements; as well as, showing you how to use these techniques. The author then looks a little closer at the tools and features inside the Elements’ workspace. He continues by looking at the mechanics of creating and using selections. Next, the author introduces the concepts behind using Layers in Elements and demonstrates the fundamental techniques that you will use on a daily basis to enhance your photos. The author then looks at some of the ways that Elements users can add type to their compositions and then checks out the many ways that you can style the text. He continues by looking at how to use Elements’ painting and drawing tools to create something entirely new. Then, the author covers the basics of filtering, provides examples and details of different filtering effects. Next, he looks at the following Photomerge utility features: Photomerge Group Shot, Photomerge Faces, Photomerge Scene Cleaner, Photomerge Panorania, Photomerge Exposure and the Photomerge Style Match. The author continues by concentrating on the various steps involved in creating, styling, editing and printing Photo Books, Collages, Calendars and Cards. Finally, he looks at the way that you can get great prints using Elements.

    This most excellent book uses a very simple and easy-to-understand style to illustrate the basic functionalities and then moves onto the more advanced techniques. More importantly, as you go through this great book, you will develop an ease with Adobe Photoshop Elements 11!
