Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Already know your way around Photoshop Elements? Then you’re probably ready to dig deeper, do more -- but only if it’s no hassle. With this full-color book, you’ll learn 100 new Elements techniques, and it won’t hurt a bit.

Got loads of files to convert? Automate it, then go grab coffee. Want Elements to run faster? This book’s tips might help. Don’t have a DVD burner? Use your CD burner to create a VCD that’ll run on most DVD players.

Here’s a technique for “painting” a black-and-white photo -- and, conversely, one that creates an old newspaper photo effect. Here’s how to use Adjustment Layers to fine tune your photo’s color. Here’s how to create wall calendars, postcards, web albums, even panoramas. Great stuff -- and best of all, easy. Bill Camarda, from the January 2005 Read Only
