Book Description

14 Nov 2005

Are you ready for an Elements book that breaks all the rules–again?

 

Like the best-selling former edition, The Photoshop Elements 4 Book for Digital Photographers breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that’s rarely done–it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly "how to do it." It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure things out on your own. Instead, it does something that virtually no other Elements book has ever done–it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why.

 

If you’re looking for one of those "tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Mask-filter" books, this isn’t it. You can grab any other Elements book on the shelf, because they all do that. Instead, this book gives you the inside tips and tricks of the trade for correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and presenting your photos like a pro. You’ll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques are–once you know the secrets.

 

Newly updated to cover Photoshop Elements 4, this full-color, easy-to-follow guide includes new tips that take advantage of Elements 4's hottest new features, including the Magic Selection Brush, which offers a quick way to make accurate selections in your photos; Magic Extractor, which lets you select an image and instantly remove the background; Auto Red Eye and Auto Skin tone tools; cool slideshow effects (text, graphics, narration, pans and zooms, and more); online sharing service; and more!


This book is for Windows users only.

This is an absolute must for anyone with a basic knowledge of Photoshop Elements.
It's written in a clear, concise,humourous, down to earth style and every step is explained thoroughly. From how to manage your organizer to editing in RAW format this book has it all.
The only problem is that you'll never want to leave your computer for trying out all the chapters!
It has fast become my photoediting bible, I'd be lost without it.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is the kind of book most of us realy want when we`re entering the world of photoediting.
This is a cut the crap get to the case book who shows you step by step how to do the things you bought the software for in the first place.
Follow the step by step instructions to learn how to crop, make a portrait look better, sharper and....
If you just want one book about Elements 4.0 and are a bit familiar with the programs tools...buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Money well spent 12 Mar 2006
Format:Paperback
This book covers, in a step by step approach, the various photoshop elements processes in a clear and concise manner. In my opinion, Photoshop elements has a bewildering array of functions and this book helps you get the best out of the program and enhance your photographs with easy to follow examples.
The pictures used in the book are excellent in their own right.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book 5 Dec 2006
Format:Paperback
Although it is recommended that this book is only for intermediate to advanced users I would have no hesitation in recommending it to a beginner.It has, in my own view, all the projects a beginner would wish to try out when opening photoshop4 for the first time, but wouldn't know where to begin and by using this book and the help option in elements4 will be quite able to take on more ambitious projects - and there's always forums if somebody gets really stuck.

So buy this book, not one that any beginner may outgrow in a couple months, and save yourselves a couple of Quid, Euros, Dollars or whatever.

It's friendly, simple and very well presented
