Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
This book is about creating effects with Photoshop Elements 3 that look like you sweated all week on them. Don’t tell anyone it only took a few minutes. Definitely don’t tell them you’ve just started using Photoshop Elements 3!

Author Scott Kelby is President of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). He talks to more Photoshop users than just about anyone on Earth, and he’s learned just about more cool Photoshop tricks than anyone, too. Well, Photoshop Elements 3 has evolved to offer a surprisingly huge percentage of Photoshop’s effects capabilities. In this book, Kelby leverages his immense knowledge of both programs to present step-by-step techniques you just won’t find anywhere else.

You’ll start with basic portrait and studio effects: sharpening foregrounds and blurring backgrounds to call attention to your subject; depth-of-field effects; soft-edged portraiture, trendy fashion blowout looks. You’ll learn backscreening and cool magazine pop-up effects; how to blend images for quick collages; how to add a “magnifying glass” to call attention to one element of your image.

Kelby offers a whole chapter of advertising effects, ranging from quick, elegant product backgrounds to classified-ad effects, fake credit cards, and transparent infoboxes. Want to fake a hand-drawn silhouette? Transform a photo into an oil painting, or woodcut, or line art? Create great edge effects -- for example, ripped edges or simulated photo mounts? Preview a product package in 3D? Make shadows that actually look real? Add lightning to your landscapes? Create a corporate logo in minutes? All that’s here, and plenty more. Bill Camarda, from the February 2005 Read Only

    AWESOME BOOK

    This is a great book for anyone (even beginners!!!) needing help in creating professional pictures for any type of marketing. The pictures you can create with the guidance of this book are really awesome...and EASY! (Makes you wonder why some of this stuff was not explained in the literature that came with the software!)This book is definitely a big help to me in developing my websites where I need a variety of pictures. And Scott Kelby's humor is a definite plus for those who hate to read manuals!
