Like all of the Visual QuickProject Guides, Retouching Photos in Photoshop Elements takes a task-based approach to teaching the essential elements of the program. Instead of drowning the reader in lengthy explanations about every possible variation, the book focuses on topics every photographer wants to learn. It uses big, color illustrations coupled with clear, concise step-by-step instructions to show the reader how to complete specific projects in a matter of minutes. The book walks readers through the most common—and vexing—problems that confront every digital photographer: flash-induced red eye, blown-out highlights and murky shadows, inaccurate skin tones, and distracting background objects. Chock full of time-saving tips, the book also shows how to share those polished photos with friends and family through email, the Web and online print labs. In short: Everything the photographer wants to know—and not a bit more.
