Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Mikkel Aaland is one of the world’s leading experts in digital photography, and his books on the subject are treasured by professionals. Now, with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, he’s written a superb guide for the rest of us, showing exactly how to make the most out of the images we care about.

Nobody loves their own portrait, but Aaland shows you how to do all the subtle stuff to make your snapshots look great. You’ll learn how to slightly enlarge eyes (a classic portrait artist’s trick), how to bring new life to lips, whiten and fix teeth, and selectively reduce wrinkles -- all without ever being too obvious!

There’s a chapter on improving outdoor shots (intensifying skies, working with the midday sun, making your ponds bluer and your grass greener). Want to swap kids in your photocomposite, or create a seamless panoramic image of an entire baseball field? It’s here.

If you’re a real estate agent (or selling your own house) you’ll love Aaland’s chapter on shooting properties: removing construction signs, judiciously blurring backgrounds, removing unsightly overhead wires, and so forth. (Maybe in the next edition he’ll show you how to embed the smell of freshly baked bread!) Bill Camarda
