Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you’re serious about your images but you’re not a professional graphic designer, Adobe has finally created the killer app: Photoshop Elements. It’s masterful, and for around $99, it’s a great deal, too. Teach Yourself VISUALLY Photoshop Elements makes this program even better. Just look up what you want to accomplish, follow the step-by-step instructions, and you’re there.

Mike Wooldridge organizes Photoshop Elements into roughly 160 bite-sized tasks. Each gets its own two-page, full-color spread -- with easy-to-understand graphics and a set of screen captures that show you exactly what to do, and what happens when you do it.

Even though Elements is easy, this book’s indispensable. Use it to learn the program’s meat-and-potatoes techniques really fast (selecting a web-safe color, using the red-eye brush, removing dust and scratches). Use it for all those tasks you only perform just often enough to forget how you did them (adding vertical type to an image, stitching together panoramic pictures, turning an image into a painting). Use it every time you run Photoshop Elements. You’ll feel like the pro you aren’t. (Bill Camarda)
