As a Photoshop Elements 4.0 tutorial, Philip Andrews’s Adobe Photoshop 4.0 Elements is pretty close to definitive. Andrews clearly explains why each tool exists, what problems it solves, when you’ll need it, and how you’ll use it. And it’s a rare page that doesn’t contain at least one gorgeous, full-color example.
Andrews covers all the basics: brightness and contrast, color corrections, filters, selections, layers, type, painting, drawing, and more. (You’ll even learn about some features you thought you’d only find in Photoshop CS 2, such as Elements’ built-in RAW image editor.) You’ll walk through creating panoramas, then preparing images for Web, email, and print. Speaking of doing stuff, this book contains more than hands-on 20 projects: everything from photo books and wall calendars to slide shows, newsletters, advertisements, and restaurant menus.
