    Digital Print Styles Recipe Book: Getting professional results with Photoshop Elements and your inkjet printer

    Important Note: Despite this book's title, it is not just for users of Photoshop Elements; the advice, styles and methods (with, in a few cases, minor modifications) are easily transferable to Photoshop CS2-CS4.
    I feel this book is aimed at relative beginners in Photoshop Elements/Photoshop. With this in mind, beyond instructions for print making, the author assumes the reader can profitably use advice on understanding and selecting both computer and printing hardware. To accomplish this goal, Digital Print Styles' first 80-plus pages offer excellent guidance on topics including PC/Mac differences, monitor calibration, computer peripherals, software, printing set-ups and media selection (ink and paper).
    The heart of the book-the printing recipes-includes not only recommended Photoshop Elements/Photoshop instructions and settings, but also potential papers and ink sets to help achieve the desired effects.
    Print Styles' final sections assume, having created gorgeous prints, you'll want to do something with them. Therefore, in his final chapters, Mr. Daly offers suggestions and related resources for projects, such as, print matting and mounting, creating calendars and photobooks; transferring images to tee shirts and selling your prints online.
    Although I've been using Photoshop-and making my own prints-for some time, I still found more than enough new information and helpful tips in Tim Daly's Digital Print Styles Recipe Book to make it a very worthwhile read.
