Photoshop is just too expensive for thousands of amateur photographers, hobbyists, and business users. For them, there's Photoshop Elements, which combines advanced image editing, flexible image capture, and versatile image delivery features for both Web and print. Not just a stripped-down Photoshop, Elements offers many new features: recipe palettes, Photomerge, automatic cropping, and Shutterfly.com photo uploads, to name a few.
Introducing Adobe Photoshop Elements is the complete, hands-on guide that Elements users need. Lisa Lee makes you comfortable with the Photoshop Elements interface, showing how to customize and personalize the software to reflect what you're doing most often with it. You'll find extensive coverage of scanning, acquiring, and creating images, as well as converting, sharing, and printing them.
Like Photoshop Elements itself, this book focuses heavily on correcting and combining images, and designing complex images. While easier to use than Photoshop, Elements features still require skill. Lee helps you master all of them: color correction, filters, effects, layers, repairing images, composites, GIF animation, panoramas, web photo galleries, and much more. Together, Adobe's software and Lee's book will help you achieve the results you want -- without the pain. (Bill Camarda)
