PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS2 SOLUTIONS The Art of Digital Photography AUTHOR: Mikkel Aaland PUBLISHER: Sybex REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades BOOK REVIEW: Photoshop is a powerful program and this book gives the reader many suggestions on how to enhance their photographs. The CD is almost as good as the book. There are 15 different software downloads to help Photoshop create pictures to almost perfect perfection. ¿Photoshop Elements2 Solutions¿ has all the normal things a teaching book should have. How-to¿s on cropping, straightening, resizing, changing colors and fixing ¿bad¿ spots on pictures. It also tells how to improve backgrounds, add motion blur or depth, swapping images, moving items from the picture, and creating panoramics. The author hasn¿t forgotten a section on text and even has a chapter on the web. Optimizing images by compression, using printers and photo services, and a reference section on layers, effects, tools, etc. Here is a good book to have to help make your use of Photoshop that much easier. It is written in a step-by-step fashion with plenty of sidebar notes and visual aids. The $40.00 price gives you a lot for your money.
This is the book. The combined book and CD make it a breeze to quickly install and learn how to use the software. Now I run all my pictures through Elements. I improve them and print them directly in Elements. I also use it to create the HTML pages I post on my site. It's so easy, I carry my camera everywhere and use it everyday.
Easy to follow step-by-step instructions, really helpful (and beautiful) photos, and great tips for making my photos that much better. Photoshop Elements Solutions was just what I was looking for to get into digital imaging. I am glad I choose this book.
