Book Description

Adobe’s Photoshop Elements is America’s #1 selling consumer photo editing software, and this updated book—covering both Windows and Mac—breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that’s never been done before: It cuts through the bull and shows exactly “how to do it.” It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge readers to come up with their own settings or figure things out on your own. Instead, it tells readers flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why. This book gives the inside tips and tricks of the trade for organizing, correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and presenting photos like a pro. Readers will be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques are—once they know the secrets.
This book covers:
  • The real secrets of how the pros retouch portraits
  • How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat
  • How to use Camera Raw for processing not only RAW photos, but JPEGs and TIFFs, too!
  • The sharpening techniques the pros really use
  • How to deal with common digital camera image problems, including removing noise and avoiding halos
  • The most requested photographic special effects
  • All the improved and brand new features of Elements 12, such as the enhanced work environment; the ability to move objects and have the background automatically filled in; one-touch Frames, Effects, and Textures;  and the ability to more easily share your images online and with your mobile devices
  • And much more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop Elements 12 book 10 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave the book only four stars because of the presence of numerous "cute" remarks on virtually every page of the book. When I am looking for pertinent information, these cute remarks are extremely annoying. Otherwise, the book is quite useful and well focused. The explanations are fully understandable and reproducible, and the author has made many of the photographs appearing in the book available via the internet. This is helpful when trying to reproduce the objectives of a particular chapter. The package arrived undamaged and prior to the anticipated date. Basically I am pleased with the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and easy to use. Recommended 20 Mar. 2014
By GoGas
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not intended to be a complete coverage of PSE and is more oriented to doing certain jobs and tasks but in doing so you learn lots about PSE in general. It does cover most areas of PSE but not everything in every section. Well laid out with lots of screenshots to follow and you can download the images to practice on which is very helpful. I bought it to learn basics for creative editing that I cannot do in Lightroom and was struggling with the different select tools and layers and this book has give me that initial start that I needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT LEARNING EXPERIENCE 15 Oct. 2014
By Tish
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The American version of PSE 12 is possibly slightly different to the one I have since under the section 'Opening non Raw files in Camera Raw' the book explains to go to the Edit menu in 'Organiser' and from the drop down menu select 'Open in Camera Raw', I don't appear to have that option.

Although I am still working through the book, it is, as you would expect from these two Authors, well written and the techniques are very well explained, some times perhaps a little bit too much, but then if you are new to post processing this would be extremely helpfull.

One of the major benefits of this book is that you don't need to have read, say Chapter 1, in order to understand what is going on in all the other chaperters; the exception being the very last Chapter. Hence you can dip in to it when and where you need.

I only have one criticism of the book, the illustrations are comparatively tiny, I appreciate that I am not 18 any more, but even a sharp eyed 18 year old would struggle to see the tiny details with or without the aid of a magnifying glass.

Apart from that, yes it is a book I would recommend, it teaches many techniques that I would have ordinarily stayed away from thinking they were far too complex, but, not they way they are explained in this book. I have learnt much!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended 7 Mar. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Once again Scott Kelby has produced a book which is invaluable for use with Photoshop Elements 12.
Easy to follow and so useful for the amateur photographer even for the semi-pro.
This has transformed my photography and I can't recommend this book highly enough.
