Overview

Scott Kelby offers full-color, graphically rich, linear, tutorial- and project-based examples of every key step in the digital photography process. From experimenting with camera settings, through capturing and manipulating the image, through editing, output and organization, this book is designed for the digital photographer who knows aesthetics but who wants a concise guide to "grip it and rip it" usage of digital technology. Photoshop Elements is a very powerful and affordable image editing software. It carries many of the same features Photoshop does without the complicated graphs and tools. It also carries it all at a much less expensive price tag - only $99, compared Photoshop's $600. Anyone making the transition from film to digital photography will learn the stuff that is critical for Photoshop Elements -- no theory, no challenging the readers to come up with their own settings. This book shows the readers exactly "how to do it."

    random access tips

    Kelby doesn't seem to waste your time. He focuses on helping you use Elements 2 on digital images that you already have. Deliberately no discussion on what is involved in taking a photo, be it digital or analog. Instead, we get a grab bag of various techniques. Random access. Because you can read these in any order. They tend to address common problems. Though the complexity of what you or Elements have to do in a tip can vary. For example, there is a tip on straightening crooked photos. Where you can define a line in the photo that is meant to be level. Then Elements lets you read this angle from the horizontal, and rotate the image by that amount, in the opposite direction. Very easy to understand. This was in a chapter on cropping and resizing. Actually, you should find that all the tips in this chapter are similarly easy. But other chapters can get more involved. Like that on colour correction. You get into the depths of changing the HSL or tweaking a gradient map. The concepts here can be trickier. Luckily, the book shows how you can easily vary settings and see the effects of this on the image. Gives you a good intuitive feel of what the tips entail.

    gets you where you want to go..... fast....

    Looking to enhance your digital pics ?.. without hundreds of pages of descriptions of the various menu options !!!. Heck.. you have the HELP system for that !. This book shows you how fix flash, colour, composition ...etc...problems with quick to the point explanations. Your photos WILL look better. It would have been nice if the did include a LITTLE more information as to why he did what he did in some instances, but on the whole .. it is as indispensable as the software itself. !
