Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
You've got your great new digital camera. You've installed Adobe Photoshop Elements 6. Now what? The glorious images you're hoping for won't just happen: You need to learn how to make them happen. Preferably, right now. For that, you need Philip Andrews's Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0: A Visual Introduction to Digital Photography.

Andrews is a busy guy: We've just finished raving about his new book for sophisticated working photographers, The Complete Raw Workflow Guide. Fortunately, this is one author who understands beginners as well as he understands professionals. Andrews clearly explains why each Photoshop Element tool exists, what problems it solves, when you'll need it, and how you'll use it. It's a rare page that doesn't contain at least one gorgeous, full-color example. And, in this edition, Andrews goes even further than ever before, adding a CD-ROM full of video tutorials.

You'll master all the basics: brightness and contrast, color corrections, filters, selections, layers, type, painting, drawing, and more. You'll walk through creating panoramas, then preparing images for Web, email, and print. There's also a full chapter of projects: everything from greeting cards to Acrobat PDF slide shows to Web-based "flipbooks."

Speaking of projects: Andrews brings together everything you've learned with a start-to-finish "family history" project. You'll walk through capturing source files; organizing and tagging Albums; editing, restoring, and retouching images; converting images to gray or old-fashioned tints; creating and fine-tuning your Photo Book; and finally, outputting to print. Combine your images with his instructions: You'll wind up with a book you'll love even more than his. Bill Camarda, from the February 2008 Read Only
