The Photoshop Elements 11 Book for Digital Photographersby Scott Kelby, Matt Kloskowski
This book (for Windows and Mac) breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that's never been done before–it cuts through the bull and shows exactly "how to do it." It's not a bunch of theory; it doesn't challenge readers to come up with their own settings or figure things out on their own. Instead, it tells readers flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why. This book gives the inside tips and tricks of the trade for organizing, correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and presenting photos like a pro. Readers will be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques are–once they know the secrets.
This book covers:
-The real secrets of how the pros retouch portraits
-How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat
-How to use Camera Raw for processing not only RAW photos, but JPEGs and TIFFs, too!
-The sharpening techniques the pros really use
-How to deal with common digital camera image problems, including removing noise and avoiding halos
-The most requested photographic special effects
-All the brand new features of Elements 11, which offers better ways to manage photos, map images, share memories, use templates, and easily create pro-quality photographic effects
And the book's secret weapon: It also covers slick workarounds, cheats, and some fairly ingenious ways to replicate many Photoshop CS6 features from right within Elements 11.
-And much more!

My first Scott Kelby Photoshop Elements book covered the 2003 edition of the software. Using his information enabled me to edit and refine my pictures in a way that astonished my graphic artist daughter, who is accustomed to the full professional Photoshop software. This edition is -- if anything -- even more useful than its predecessors. Everything is concise and to the point ... easily understood and implemented. More importantly, the book focuses on the practical needs of the amateur (including the proficient amateur) at digital photography. That is, the subjects are masterfully chosen to apply to the business of producing outstanding photographs and presentations on a daily basis. No wasted time or ink fulminating over arcane "futzing around" with stuff that you will never use.
