    Great Value!

    I thought about it for a long time before spending my money but it has been worth every penny. I started learning new techniques in the first few pages and that continued through the rest of the book.

    It is easy to read and to understand. The author actually tells the reader why he does things one way and not another or what the various effects might be with different techniques.

    I'd recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning about the finer points of Elements 11. It's worth every penny you'll spend.

    Do you want to explore the field of photomontage, and make reali

    Do you want to explore the field of photomontage, and make reality from the dreams locked in their heads? If you do, then this book is for you! Author David Asch, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that shows you how to release your ideas out of your head, and onto the screen.




    Asch, begins by making sure that you are up to speed on the selection methods that are available to you. Then, he explores the techniques that demonstrate the many functions and abilities of the main layer types. He continues by looking at the basics of using that most powerful tool, Free Transform: with its multiple keyboard modifiers, it’s capable of producing good results. Next, the author looks at tools that give Elements users some of the power of Photoshop CS6, with the ability to selectively hide and show regions of layers. Then, he explores the most powerful tool: the Levels command. The author continues by discussing the basics of creating text. Next, he looks at some fun and useful ideas for one-off images and also techniques to employ in more complex images. He continues by showing you how to change the backdrops of your photos. Finally, the author shows you how to conjure chrome spheres over a seascape, create a wanted poster, make a neon sign, put together a vintage-style movie magazine cover and much more. 




    This is the kind of excellent book that you should be able to just dip into and extract the information you need. Throughout this great book, the author uses the built-in keyboard shortcuts in Elements; and, it’s really worth learning at least the most frequently used ones; they are there to help you work more efficiently.
