    Awesome!

    This is a great guide for anyone new to Photoshop - it provides good background on the "layer" concept and great step by steps for using the tools! Easy to read and logically presented. I absolutely love it!

    Ideal for my needs-I use this book all the time!

    Faced with learning Photoshop Elements totally from scratch, I was intimidated. I bought this book and with trembling hands (not much of an exaggeration) began reading, a small section at a time. Of course I didn't understand it all, but gradually ideas began to sink in. Keep in mind that the whole subject of layers, masking and so on was new to me. I'm not an artist, I'm a writer. I needed to design covers for some of my out-of-print novels (mysteries, romances, paranormals), which I'm reissuing in low-cost digital editions. Plus I wanted to publish a nonfiction book. Wish I could say that the moment I installed PSE9, I became an expert. No, there was lots of cursing and tearing out my hair, and I viewed some of the online videos repeatedly. What saved me from total frustration was being able to look things up in this book, which is well organized, clearly written and beautifully illustrated. I'm constantly learning, and without this book, I might have given up. To see a cover I designed within a few weeks after starting to use PSE9, check out the link. (My husband shot the photo but I edited it and added the text and the color strips) --Jacqueline Diamond
