The Photoshop Elements 4 Book for Digital Photographers

Overview

Are you ready for an Elements book that breaks all the rules–again?

Like the best-selling former edition, The Photoshop Elements 4 Book for Digital Photographers breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that’s rarely done–it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly "how to do it."

Overview

Are you ready for an Elements book that breaks all the rules–again?

Like the best-selling former edition, The Photoshop Elements 4 Book for Digital Photographers breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that’s rarely done–it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly "how to do it." It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure things out on your own. Instead, it does something that virtually no other Elements book has ever done–it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why.

If you’re looking for one of those "tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Mask-filter" books, this isn’t it. You can grab any other Elements book on the shelf, because they all do that. Instead, this book gives you the inside tips and tricks of the trade for correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and presenting your photos like a pro. You’ll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques are–once you know the secrets.

Newly updated to cover Photoshop Elements 4, this full-color, easy-to-follow guide includes new tips that take advantage of Elements 4's hottest new features, including the Magic Selection Brush, which offers a quick way to make accurate selections in your photos; Magic Extractor, which lets you select an image and instantly remove the background; Auto Red Eye and Auto Skin tone tools; cool slideshow effects (text, graphics, narration, pans and zooms, and more); online sharing service; and more!

This book is for Windows users only.

    Well Done

    I actually found this book to be very helpful for the first-time user. It took me where I needed to go in an imaginative and informative fashion. Well-organized, well-supported, and well-done.

    not so great

    This book goes over very few tips or tricks. Not much help for the novice user.

    Another Great Book on Elements by Kelby

    I have the 2.0 and 3.0 books. This version has new techniques on 4.0 that you need to know. It is still less expensive in the long run than CS2. In any case Kelby is the premire writer on photoshop elements books add to that the club price and your getting a bargain.
