Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This book is titled How to Cheat with Photoshop Elements 6, but is it cheating to simply get really good at Elements really quick, so you can get really creative? Whatever you call it, that's what this book delivers.

Oh, all right: there are some honest-to-goodness "cheats" here. (Elements lacks Photoshop's powerful Layer Masks feature, but the authors show you how to get the identical result.) The heart of this book, however, is hands-on projects designed to trigger your imagination.

For instance, the authors love composites and montages and show you how to make them stunningly realistic. (There's a full chapter on using transformation and distortion to create perspective, wrap text on curved surfaces, and so forth.) Want to recolor a sky, simulate candlelight or flashlight illumination, fake neon signs or writing in the sand? OK, maybe that's cheating -- but it sure is fun. Bill Camarda, from the February 2008 Read Only
