In the past I have valued this series of books that were able to simplify often complex and difficult subjects especially those related to computers. This book, however, does not follow that philosophy. Photoshop Elements is not exactly simple nor intuitive and unfortunately this book does not approach this suject in a format that a novice can easily follow. It intiates the reader with discussions of editing,context menus, shortcuts and other technics better suited for later discussions while ignoring the basics of getting started. Where is the trouble shooting guide? I'm the biggest dummie of all for buying this book without examining it first.
