Ever since it was introduced, we’ve been wowed by how much power Adobe has stuffed into Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 for the price. We’ve been even more impressed with the program’s accessibility. In contrast to Photoshop, non-professionals can actually get something done with Photoshop Elements 2.0. And with some help from David A. Huss, they can accomplish really great things.
In this full-color book, Huss shows Elements 2.0 users how to transform outright lousy images into surprisingly good ones. Take, for example, Huss’s portrait case study. Huss walks you through cropping for composition, getting the red eye out, whitening eyes and teeth, adding highlights to hair, smoothing skin, removing unwanted reflections, downsizing ears and noses, correcting color, and more. (He also offers tips for taking digital photos that won’t need so much editing!)
You’ll find entire chapters on fine-tuning color, handling composition and distortion problems, and improving lighting. Huss shows you how to use filters both to fix poor images and to create superb effects. He especially loves stitching together panoramas. If you’ve never created one before, his enthusiasm and expert guidance will convince you to give them a shot (or several). Bill Camarda
