Photoshop Elements is geared for business users, students, educators, and home users who want professional-looking images for their print and Web projects, but don't want or need the advanced power of Adobe Photoshop. With Photoshop Elements 5 for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide, readers can start reading from the beginning of the book to get a tour of the interface and start with image-editing basics, or they can look up specific tasks to learn just what they need to know. This task-based, visual reference guide uses step-by-step instructions and plenty of screenshots to show readers how to capture photos from traditional or digital cameras, reduce red eye, correct color, work with layers, erase backgrounds, create photo-illustrations and Web graphics, simulate painting and drawing techniques, apply artistic effects, and more.
Newly updated to cover Photoshop Elements 5, it details the hottest new features: new advanced color and lighting controls, new customizable layouts, Flash-based web photo galleries, the new Flipbook feature, which lets you string together a series of still photos to create an eye-catching and fun flipbook, and the ability to download and edit photos directly from your mobile phone or handheld device. Both beginning and advanced users will find what they need here--in straightforward language and with readily accessible examples.

I get it now,
This review is from: Photoshop Elements 5 for Windows (Paperback)I checked this book out of the library first, then found it to be so useful that I had to purchase a copy of my own. I am sure there are other good books out there that explain Photoshop Elements, but this is the one that finally made things "click" for me. I am now happily playing with the program instead of pulling my hair out trying to figure out what the heck I'm doing. The chapters are laid out in a logical order, and all the steps are explained in clear language with plenty of diagrams and before/after photos. My only complaint is that the illustrations are small and all in black and white, which makes them less helpful than they could be, especially in the chapters dealing with color adjustments.
Photoshop Elements 5,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Photoshop Elements 5 for Windows (Paperback)I bought Adobe's Photoshop Elements 5 for my computer and found that I was having trouble using the program. So I went to the library and borrowed at copy of Photoshop Elements 5 for Windows. The instructions are easy to understand and very complete. I went on line and bought the book because it tells you how to do so many things with the program. I love it.
LIke "Missing Manual" better,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Photoshop Elements 5 for Windows (Paperback)I bought both this book and the "Missing Manual." This book is not as detailed as the "Missing Manual." It is still very helpful, but if I were to get one book it would be the Missing Manual.
