Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
You need great images -- but you’re no artist or graphic designer. Maybe you’re a student, or a small business owner, or you’ve got a personal web site, or you just have a pile of old photos and it’s time you did something with them. Photoshop Elements 2 was made for you -- and so was Sams Teach Yourself Photoshop Elements in 24 Hours.

Carla Rose is among the best we’ve seen at teaching to beginners -- as proven in her previous Sams Teach Yourself Adobe Photoshop in 24 Hours and Teach Yourself Digital Photography in 14 Days (not to mention her contributions to publications ranging from The New Yorker to The Atlantic Fisherman). Here, she assumes no design expertise whatsoever: if you can point, click, and read, you’re golden.

It’s amazing how much Elements 2 can do for the price. Rose covers darned near all of it. You’ll learn how to capture and edit photos (from film-based cameras via scanners, or from digital cameras). You’ll master color correction; use layers; erase unwanted backgrounds; create photo-illustrations; edit and optimize web graphics; use filters to simulate drawing and painting techniques; and much more. It’ll be fun, easy, and painless. Bill Camarda
