4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad PSE intro; Mac users, take note 14 Jan 2007
By CubeBoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a decent enough intro to Photoshop Elements 4. It doesn't cover a great deal more information than what's in the manual, but things are presented in more detail, with more examples, so it's useful. The color illustrations are helpful.

If you use a Mac: this book is written strictly for the Windows version, so you have to ignore a small amount of Windows-specific material, but most of the functions and menus are identical in both versions.

Oddly, in the intro, the authors say Elements 4 is NOT available for the Mac. That's funny, because I've had my Mac version for almost a year, and this book was published in 2006, though obviously written earlier. The authors then helpfully suggest you buy a Windows PC in order to run Elements! Dream on ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Mastering Photoshop Basics 25 July 2006
By Thomas Cosgrove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My husband and I are taking a beginning Photoshop class at the local adult school. Instead of a more extensive and difficult text we chose to supplement the class with Photoshop Elements 4 For Dummies. It moves in more logical sequence than the class and enabled us to begin editing our photos immediately. It also allowed us to focus on class instruction without taking notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elements 4 for Dummies is great for this Dummy 8 Mar 2006
By Timothy M. Toine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The "...For Dummies" is a great series. I have used these books for a number of subjects. The Photoshop Elements series has been especially helpful. Although the Elements series by Photoshop is not as complicated and intricate as the Photoshop 7,8 and CS it has many operations that really allow this amatuer to produce some startling results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dummies NOT ANY LONGER! 8 Feb 2007
By Marci Carberry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great companion book to your Photoshop Elements. Between the two books I feel I have all I need to know.

Simple explanations makes it definitely dummy-friendly. Easy index makes it simple to look up whatever you have in mind at the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Software that's getting ever more powerful 30 Mar 2006
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Thee seems to be a trend in software that they have to keep comming up with new releases to get people to send in more money. But after version three or four, it seems that the new features that they are adding aren't really features that you'd use. Look at Microsoft Word, which of the new features do you really use? But also look at WordPad. It's grown until it's about the equivalent of Word 3.0 or something like that. It's faster, smaller, easier to use and pretty much does what you want, in some cases even better than Word itself.

Photoshop Elements is kind of the same way. It was once a consumer grade, junior version of Photoshop. But it's now in it's fourth edition. It still doesn't have some of the features found in the full scale Photoshop, but would you use those features? And remember Photoshop Elements is $45 on Amazon, full blown Photoshop is $578.

This book describes what you can do with Photoshop Elements. It's one of the new full color 'For Dummies' books; it would kind of have to be to be meaningful for this kind of software. Amateur or pro just turning digital, this is an excellent book.
