Being a fan of "the missing manual" series of guides, this edition too has not disappointed. Although being far from proficient using Photoshop Elements 10, the first chapters have been informative and instructional. It will be a go-to reference. The e-book format is wonderful, facilitaing notetaking, hightlighting and topic seaching.

Definitely a must-have book
This book lives up to its title of being "the missing manual" and is a joy to use. Brundage has gone beyond the basic expectations of logical organization and clearly understood step-by-step instructions. Technical jargon is kept to a bare minimum. Brundage goes into depth by explaining why and when to use or avoid using certain features and any drawbascks as well. On-line sources are recommended throughout the book, even those not affiliated with Adobe publishing or its website.
I am proficient, barely at times, with the basics of computer usage therefore I find every new software package challenging along with the usual assortment of "help" books. Not so with this book,within an hour of receiving this book, I was loading and organizing photos with ease. I am very thorough with labeling my photos by year, person, date, place, and event as basics. I have not "lost" a photo yet. My first dabblings with photo editing where successful. I truly do not believe anyone will be disappointed with this book.

Photoshop Elements 10 - the missing manual, Barbara Brundage - O'Reilly
Highly recommended I have been teaching Photoshop Elements since version 7 and have used Ms. Brundage's series of books for version 7, 8, and 9. This book is an A to Z manual on Photoshop Elements. One feature I particularly like is that the author lists a number of websites for additional material such as plug-ins. Also, she will reference a book not published by O'Reilly, an action for which both the author and publisher deserve credit.
As the author states in her introduction, this is a how and when book. The book instructs one how to use various techniques and tools, as well as when not to use them. In addition to the book content, one can go to the O'Reilly website to download additional material that is pertinent so that one can better complete various exercises in the book.
The bottom line; if you use Photoshop Elements 10, buy this book.
