Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Photoshop Elements 3 is easy, cheap, fun...and with a little exploration, you’ll realize just how powerful it’s become. Explore it with the world’s best guide: Mikkel Aaland.

Aaland’s a renowned photographer who’s been working with digital since Ansel Adams turned him on to it in 1980. What’s more, he’s worked closely with Adobe to help shape Elements, so he knows this program inside out. This gorgeous full-color book offers help with portraits, outside shots, product shots, photorealistic composites, panoramas, you name it.

You’ll learn how to fix hair, eyes, noses...backgrounds and skies...poor exposures. How to give a product dimension and drama (great for eBay listings). How to add yourself to a group shot. How to make better JPEGs. Whatever the task, Aaland shows you where to start, what to do next -- and why. Bill Camarda, from the February 2005 Read Only
