2.0 out of 5 stars Better than nothing 27 Feb 2014
By Jay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Better than nothing, I suppose, but it's not user-friendly at all. Perhaps if you work through it like a course book, it may be OK; it certainly seems to cover lots of 'how tos', but it's hard to find what you want. The index doesn't include a lot of the things you might want to find and the terminology isn't always intuitive. Once you've found what you need, the explanations are quite good, although some things need reading more than once, to understand them. Perhaps I really am a dummy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop Guide 2 Feb 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's OK but doesn't always provide what you're looking for. Not a bad effort though and used in conjunction with Elements 12 it's good.

4.0 out of 5 stars COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE 28 Nov 2013
By Graham
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a good comprehensive guide, with more colour than in the past. One big drawback I found, was on the KINDLE version a lot of the text in the diagrams was not very clear at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great
I wanted to quickly learn how to use photoshop elements and it didn't really offer that. I found it much easier to watch a quick video from an online search.
