Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Photoshop Elements, already powerful, gets even better with Version 3.0: It’s easier to organize and share your images, remove “digital noise,” and fix all manner of image problems. With a little help from David Huss, even rank amateurs can use it to work magic on their digital images.

Huss offers soup-to-nuts coverage of resurrecting damaged or lifeless photos, then managing and sharing them. You’ll find entire chapters on image scanning and repair (you’ll be amazed at how much QuickFix can do now); fine-tuning lighting and color; and creating panoramas -- one of Huss’s favorite topics. From fixing weird color casts to smarter cropping to adding text and comic-style “thought balloons,” Huss shows you how. Don’t have enough defective images of your own? Download his practice files, and tweak away. Bill Camarda

    Photo Elements 3 Cool Pictures

    11/21/04 Review of ¿Photoshop Elements 3 50 Ways to Create Cool Pictures¿ By Marty Grauer, Fresno MUG. This book Surprised me, It begins with the basics of Photoshop Elements 3, and handling photos. I have gone through some of the tutorials and learned quite a lot. I was,however, somewhat disappointed with some of the downloads for the tutorials as some did dot exist. Fortunately I opened some of my own photos which were representative of those missing downloads. I was able to complete the lesson and gained much as a result. I have been using Photoshop Elements versions 1,2 and now 3. I have taught our club the very basics of removing blemishes, cropping, color adjusting, brightness and contrast control, and darkening or lightening a photo. This book covers all this and far more. I learned something about layering and adding better skys, building perspective correction, and more than can be covered in this short review. I highly recommend this book. Marty Grauer, Fresno Mac Users Group.

    Photo Organizer is the main improvement

    Perhaps the most pertinent question answered by the book is what are the differences between Elements 2 and 3. If you are an existing E2 user, is there enough incentive to migrate to E3? Huss devotes considerable space to squarely address your concerns. Of the chances, the most useful is Photo Organizer. A huge improvement over File Browser, which is what E2 gave you. PO is well suited for collections of hundreds or thousands of photos. Many people who take photos regularly will run into the scaling constraints of File Browser. PO lets you attach metadata to a photo, in the form of keywords which you can choose as succinct descriptors of the photo. Then, later, if you search for a keyword, PO will return a set of thumbnails of the photos with that metadatum. Picking a thumbnail gives the original image. Very simple to use. If you know HTML, the metadata in PO maps to the <meta> tag that can be used in any HTML page. Serious collectors should welcome PO. The only drawback is that it does not exist in the Mac version of E3; only in the Microsoft version. Huss speculates that Apple's iPhoto is too close in functionality for Adobe to economically develop a Mac version.
