1.0 out of 5 stars Very good book but 25 Jan. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good book but can only give my copy of Photoshop Elements 12 for Dummies All in one such a low score because it arrived with some pages falling out. The book was for myself so I spent an hour repairing the pages that were loose. Had the book been bought as present for some one then I would have returned it to Amazon.
Apart from the book manufacturing problem with my copy the content is very clear and just what I expected.

By Fareed Rajack - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you want to learn what PSE12 has to offer get this book ! It is very detailed and comprehensive and explains nicely all the features in PSE12. I had another book for PSE11 but it was too superficial . Definitely happy with this guide to help me in learning PSE12.

4.0 out of 5 stars We're not dummies... 29 Dec. 2013
By Helmut A. Schultz - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
but sometimes you may feel like one. After spending a 50+ year career in Information Technology, I felt that my grasp of the tools and techniques in Photoshop Elements 12 was lacking. Enter the PSE-12 for Dummies. I've been rescued form a sea of overwhelming data by the presentation of simple tools in a simple manner. This book is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars good book to have 5 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this for my husband along with Elements 12 program because, as casual photo hobbists, the full version of photoshop would have been wasted on us. Much has changed since we last purchased a photoshop program. The last program we had was Photoshop 5, so you can see we were in desperate need of an upgrade! Glad I purched the book! It has instructions in plain English and explains in detail what every feature is used for.
