    Excellent--highly recommended

    A little pricey--but worth it. This book is clearly written and gives good examples of all functions in PSE 9. When you've finished reading this book and working with PSE in conjunction--you'll have all the information needed to organize, edit, create, and share your pics. I've been using photoshop elements for 7 years--since 2.0 and upgraded at 6.0 and now 9.0--it just keeps getting better and this book puts it altogether.

    returned this book

    It is bad enough that you have to spend over $100 for a program that comes with no manual or instructions, but then they recommend this book which is mind numbing, many aspects of the program are easy to figure out but I wanted to find out how to uses some of the more complex tools like the magic lasso( which is a stupid name to begin with) but it tells you how to use it but what on earth are you supposed to do with it when you have used it. This is a text book made for people who work for adobe, not a person who is now being forced into using Elements. I used Microsoft picture it publishing for years, it was the best program you could make cut outs, greeting cards and so much with photos , but sadly it no longer works with windows 7 big mistake Microsoft. I wish Microsoft would listen to its customers and have continued with there photo line it was the best.

    Good for beginners, advanced users should look elswhere.

    Most of the subjects covered were done well and would help a newcomer to elements 9. There were however shortcomings in the 'editor full' section. Gradients were poorly covered, there was not even a mention of the gradient editor tool, likewise dodging and burning was superficial. The raw editor was fairly well covered but no mention was made that it could be used for editing jpeg files in 16 bit mode as well as raw files. Some shortcuts are used in their respective sections, however a page containing a comprehensive list would have been appreciated. Again for the beginner this is a good buy but for more comprehensive treatments you need to research the topic using online forums.
