About the Author
Barbara Brundage has been the author of Photoshop Elements: The Missing Manual since Elements 3, is an Adobe Community Expert, and has been a member of Adobe's prerelease groups since Elements 3. She's been teaching people how to use Photoshop Elements since it first came out in 2001. Barbara, who lives in Jensen Beach, Florida, started using Elements to create graphics for use in her day job as a harpist, music publisher, and arranger. Along the way, she joined the large group of people finding a renewed interest in photography thanks to digital cameras. If she can learn to use Elements, you can, too!

Photoshop Elements has been Photoshop's baby brother for many years and offers most, if not all, of the features from Photoshop that the average non-power user is likely to need. Admittedly, many more advanced and infrequently needed features have been left out and probably always will be but the products sell at very different prices - Photoshop is no longer sold as a full commercial package and can only be obtained on a monthly or annual subscription. Elements also recognises that many photographers submit photos to sites that require some technical or other information and provides a photo management facility that its big brother omits. For those who work exclusively in RAW mode or who use it sometimes, Camera RAW is included in the package and the book uses many of its pages to cover that important function in some depth.
This book has for several years mirrored Photoshop Elements' various releases and is updated whenever a new version appears. Sometimes, features previously offered by the software may be removed or modified in the current version and the book tends to list those as and when they happen, and that is no less true for this update. All the program's possibilities are covered in a friendly and ususally easily understood fashion.Read more ›
Like others, I have found the lack of an Index a nuisance, but the linked topic headings in the Table of Contents is a help.
My 'work-around' has been print the Contents, complete with page numbers, from the PDF version and then use the handy navigation feature in the Kindle to home in quickly on the relevant page and topic.
Then I discovered this book and guess what? I found I had everything I needed in PSE - I just needed some expert guidance as to how to unlock its secrets.
Barbara's book is a truly excellent piece of work. Her understanding of what PSE is capable of and how to get it done is excellent as is her expert and interesting articulation onto the written page with downloadable examples that you can try for yourself. I am about 85% of the way through this book now and it was worth every penny. Although I've read it cover to cover it is full of hyperlinks that jump from one section to other related sections and it has an excellent Contents and Index all hyperlinked to the relevant blocks of text making it also a truly useful reference book as you can easily find anything. There are also hyperlinks to useful resources on the internet.
Also of great value is the great number of embedded TIPS panels - here Barbara has accurately predicted what people would want to actually use PSE for at this point and has intuitively presented just the example you wanted.
The ideas in this book led me to seek out more on the internet and has completely changed my view on photography and what makes a really good photo as compared to just an average one.Read more ›
