This is super-concentrated Photoshop Elements 3 training. Spend two hours with this DVD, and you’ll be able to do just about anything with your images, from retouching old sepia photos to creating contact sheets. Scott Kelby has taught tens of thousands of designers in person, and hundreds of thousands through his books. He’s smooth, friendly, occasionally funny: You couldn’t ask for more painless viewing.
Kelby tours the entire program (another chance to be impressed with how much power Adobe has squeezed into Elements 3). You’ll learn how to capture, review, and organize your images; adjust lighting and shadows; add photo filters (familiar to experienced “analog” photographers); retouch images using the clone stamp; fix over- and under-exposures; create panoramas; use special effects; even design wall calendars. Just let Kelby’s teaching wash over you: Mastering Elements has never been simpler. Bill Camarda, from the July 2005 Read Only
