5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book - Highly Recommended 12 Dec 2004
By Nigel
Format:Paperback
I have read many books on this subject and this one, unlike many, gets straight to the point without pages of blurb about how to drive photoshop and image formats etc.
There are some useful introductions to Photoshop Elements, on which all the techniques in the book are based, but then we have well illustrated, clear and concise infomation on how to achieve a whole host of very useful image correction techniques and even some special effects to make your digital photgraphs look outstanding.
This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in this subject matter and at this price it is a give away!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent wee book 11 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Focused on Photoshop Elements this is a great summary of common things you'd want to do and how to do them.
It's very well laid out, easy to read, and easy to follow.
I bought this along with it's companion book 40 Digital Photography Techniques and would recommend either or both to anyone that's just got a digicam and is off to explore. Neither rambles on for half a book's worth about how to choose a digicam as many of their contemparies do, so they're waffle free with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful digital photographers handbook 4 Oct 2003
By Tim Skyrme - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
40 DIGITAL PHOTO RETOUCHING TECHNIQUES.
YoungJin.com
Sybex Books [...])
ISBN 89-314-3502-9
The fact that this book is not a large manual is a bit of a change from the norm, but then it doesn't have to be to do the job that it sets out to achieve. That is to give the reader exactly the information required to do the most common tasks that are required by the new user of digital cameras.
It does not go into lots of detail that is unnecessary for the audience that this book is aimed at, which is the new user of a digital camera who wants the best images they can achieve without a lot of learning.
It is not a dummies book, it just sets out the most common things that you may need to fix up after taking your photos with your new digital camera or scanned images.
Unfortunately the makers of the cameras do not tell you that there are generally certain steps which must be taken to improve the quality of your images once you have them in your computer. You can of course, take them to a photo shop to have the enhancements done for you, but this book helps you to do all those changes yourself. In effect it is a "User's Help Manual" in disguise.
Sensibly the book bypasses the complex learning curves and esoteric information that puts most learner users off even doing the most basic touch-ups that can turn an ordinary snapshot into a worthwhile image with much more of the detail enhanced, which is why the shot was taken in the first place.
Included with the book is a trial version of Adobe's Elements 2 which can be used to follow all the lessons in a simple, easy to follow fashion. This is a sensible way to market the program, and it certainly looks easy.
I would assume that unless you are studying photography and using a photographic manipulation program, all you want to do is have the best image you can get in the fastest time. After all, the learning curve is way to big for most users to bother with.
The book starts out introducing the user to the Elements 2 interface and explains what you are going to see, and what it means. This leads into opening files (images/photos for newbies) and is the only book that I have seen that lists double clicking the desktop to open the explorer panel as a shortcut.
Once you are familiar with that and can find your images you are given instructions on particular methods of saving your images once you have made your alterations, and why you use different methods for your final result, be it for print, slideshow or the web.
Web users need to be aware of file size constraints which are not considerations for other types of image storing, and this is something that gets overlooked very easily, especially when email is involved.
After that the reader is taken directly to the correction techniques for the most common problems to be encountered, and how to remedy them. This is the main body of the book and is where it shines.
The reader is shown, by means of simple instructions using screen captures, what it is that they need to do to get much more from a quick snap that didn't quite come out as planned. No need to understand what is behind the fix, just follow the instructions and if you can do what is explained, then you can apply the same fix to your own images, it is that simple.
Utilise this 200 page, glossy paper, almost pocket sized book to add makeup, take away blemishes, add and remove colour, change colour and antique images. You can also add special effects to enhance and alter images sensibly to achieve a totally different effect.
BOTTOM LINE.
This is a great book for the newcomer to digital photography, and the techniques will apply to almost every photo editing software, not just the Elements 2 program packaged as a trial.
The book is almost an ad for the program but that isn't a bad thing, just good marketing, and if it helps to get the most from your new images then it achieves what it set out to do.
This book is definitely a must for beginners to check out and keep beside the computer.

2.0 out of 5 stars an Ok book, but it might be a bit too basic 7 Feb 2009

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for beginners 6 July 2005
By Kamaur Bonfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I can't say that this book helped me that much. The only reason I would give it a 3 is because the price, but part of the book was binded incorrectly. I mean honestly...who binds a book with an entire section upside down and backwards. I say save your money for a better book if you understand the difference between high and low resolution images. If you don't look it up...it will save you the money.
