Format: Paperback
I am new to Elements having just bought elements 9 from amazon. Although I have basic skills in photo editing i thought I would buy a book to help me along. As photoshop products can be a minefield if you do not know what your doing.

Yes it is a good book and written so you can understand it ............I find that always helps. The exercises and projects are very good and extremly helpful .......................I have no coplaints about that at all in fact the section on raw is very good.

But............they assume you have proir knowledge of elements and how to use it. Which was what I bought the book for. I did read the reviews about it before I bought it and now I think about it no body did say it was good for beginners.

So I have now got to buy yet another book to cover the very basics.

Format: Paperback
Quite a useful book though not quite in the same complete practical style as Kelby's earlier books for PSE. It seems to be assumed, that anyone who has recent versions of PSE has already got some familiarity with it. I think that is risky thinking. At the outset, the reader is informed that there will not be an full explanatory tour of the editing palette. Because his collaborator writes on one aspect of digital editing, a chunk of teaching information on layering is not included in this book. Instead, the reader is referred to the other author's book on the subject. It may be okay, but I am not inclined to buy a specialist subject book when what I want, at the moment, is generalised development.

I am not particularly amused by the introductions to sections...they are meant to be, I think, light hearted and humorous. Why not just say something like "digital editing is an interesting and fun subject if you want it to be, and serious for you who want to be serious. I enjoy it and that is how I/we write about it". Instead there are inane and irrelevant burbled partitions. I wonder if they are there to make the book look thicker. These elements are not needed, in all respects.

I like Kelby's approach to digital editing, which you get to when the irrelevancies (see above) are left behind. His books are very readable and useful. That does not mean other authors who take a different approach are not competent in their presentation of the subject. A number of them are very good for a variety of stages of development.

PSE9 is an application produced for PC and Applemac. As PSE 9 includes an Organiser for Applemac, there is a fair bit of detail about its workings and use.

Format: Paperback
Having had previous versions of this book, it covers much of the same ground, but has, as far as I can tell, been thoroughly updated. It is easy to read and with a reduction in the quantity of so called 'humorous chat' (that North American authors litter such books with in the belief that it makes them easier to digest). Nicely illustrated and very easy to delve into at any point. Thoroughly recommended, especially for those that use Elements 9 on a Mac.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Mr. P. Rodford on 31 Dec 2010
Format: Paperback
I also have the same books for previous versions of elements and this follows the same format. Really easy to follow and invaluable for casual users. I don't use photoshop often enough to remember exactly how to do stuff and in what order so the book comes out almost everytime I need to do some retouching. It's funny to read the product description above though - "If you're looking for one of those "tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Mask-filter" books, this isn't it." Then just a few lines along it says - "The sharpening techniques the pros really use (there's an entire chapter just on this!)" Yes there is a lot of detail about some techniques but it is useful to understand what you are doing. Owning the PE9 means buying a guide to get the best out of it so budget for both in the first place. I researched lots of other PE9 guides to see if it was worth going for a different style this time. It isn't. This is the best guide I have seen (so far).

I have bought other guides to using previous versions of elements but they were all vastly inferior to this one. Got it quicker than the 3 to 5 weeks quoted on Amazon UK by getting it from Amazon.com. Even with extra postage the total cost was not much different and it arrived in rural France in 10 days (including Xmas).

The style is easy to follow and so far I have only scratched the surface but discovered lots of usefull elements features that I was unaware of. The section on Raw processing alone is worth the money.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After battling with CS4 for several years and purchasing and reading many books and magazines on Photoshop, I saw a demo of Elements 9 and purchased it, mainly for its ability to process NEF images and its many excellent auto functions. After printing and reading the manual that came from Adobe I was still struggling and sent for this book based on Amazon customer reviews. Wow, it makes everything so simple with easy to follow step by step guidance. I read it from cover to cover, before attempting setting my second licenced software up on a new laptop purchased for photography only and its guidance regarding importing,organising and tagging my images made each phase so simple, as is each stage of the editing instructions.
I just wish that I had found Scott's CS4 guide years ago. Both raw beginners and more experienced users will, I am sure find this book invaluable. I have now just finished reading The Digital Photography Book 1 and am about to order books 2 & 3. I cannot speak highly enough of this author, he is brilliant at explaining functions in a clear and concise way.
