The Barnes & Noble Review
What makes this book stand out among several great Photoshop Elements tutorials? First, author Deke McClelland. He’s been bringing deep insight and real personality to teaching these topics for over a decade -- in person, and in his classic Photoshop Bibles. Second: two hours of broadcast-quality video, in which McClelland personally coaches you through every significant task.

Watch him first. Then, turn to the corresponding full-color, chapter-length lesson and practice hands-on, setting your own pace. McClelland’s structured lessons and end-of-lesson quizzes give you confidence that you’ve really mastered the material.

What’ll you learn? Everything from organizing photos to QuickFix, cropping to layers, color correction to slide shows. The book’s primarily intended for beginning-to-intermediate Elements users. But McClelland can’t resist drawing on his colossal storehouse of knowledge, sharing tips even most experienced users don’t know. Bill Camarda, from the June 2005 Read Only
