Not as intuitive as it should be and can be difficult to use until you learn its processes but it is worth persevering with, as results can be amazing. You will not regret buying it. If you just wish to tweek photos or only use the quick edit there are free programmes out there just as good. For more serious editing it is the best currently in the market.

This book, like the many others in the series, is an excellent aid for the Photoshop user, seeking a clear guide on how to execute changes to a photographic image. The step-by-step guidance provided for each operation is clearly presented and easily followed. I have no hesitation in recommending this book.

Excellent guide for beginners, great quick tips if you're experienced 29 Mar. 2011
By Lonny D. Stark - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I work daily with the full Photoshop program, and have used it for over ten years, but I recently bought Elements 9 so I could provide phone help to clients and friends who have taken my advice to buy the less expensive version of the software. While some aspects Elements and the full-blown program are similar, there's enough of a difference to bog down the process of editing photos if you don't know your way around the interface.

The Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks book is an ideal solution for learning the Elements 9 interface, as well as features and limitations of the program. For anyone who's impatient to get started, who likes to jump right in play with a program (and ask questions later), or who simply needs a refresher on Elements, this is your book. It's the perfect first book if you're new to image editing and don't want to trod through chapter-long tutorials. Each topic is split into a bite-sized two-page explanation, with excellent photos and illustrations, and well-written text.

It's easy to hop around the book from subject to subject, skipping the parts that don't apply to you, and finding the answers you're looking for. After you've read a tip, you're armed with the terminology that you need to search online for more in-depth articles if you so desire. This is immensely helpful, because Google can prove to be worthless if you don't know the exact terms that you need to solve your problem.

If you haven't purchased the software yet (or if you're debating between Elements and Photoshop CS-whatever, or any other image editing programs), I'd highly recommend Elements. Although it may be missing some excellent features of the full program, I could do 90 percent of my most important image editing, graphic design, and artwork with nothing more than Elements. It doesn't offer the CMYK color space needed for professional print industry jobs, but conversion to CMYK is almost always the final step in a project; that step can easily be accomplished using free software found at reliable download sites such as CNet. I find that most of the features in the full version of Photoshop are fluff added to make the program seem like a good deal.

Once you've installed Elements 9, this book will help you learn how to manage and edit your images like a pro.

Great Tutorial Book 7 April 2011
By Merlot Rider - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The 100 tutorials covered in this book are excellent for newcomers and experts using Elements 9. This will save considerable time and frustration for beginners because it covers 75% or more of the information a novice will need to get started with Elements. For experts, it will provide a quick review of seldom used features of Elements 9. Great value for content and price.

Awesome Guide to PSE9 29 May 2011
By Keith S. Safford - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I finally broke down and upgraded from Photoshop CS2. No, I did NOT need CS5 and all the assundry bells and whistles that CS5 provides. PSE9 is pretty much all the prosumer photographer needs. And with that it is NOT easy to learn and has so many features that it is impossible to learn through the Adobe Tutorials or lessons. If you are going to read those and go through the lessons by Adobe you are in for a rough flight!

Rob has gone through and identified the most important features of PSE9 and what the prosumer needs and gives you steps on how to accomplish those tasks. Upon getting the trial version, I hated the organizer as I could not figure it out. After reading Rob's tips on how to use it, I am lovin' it and it is because I know how to use the Organizer. Now it is time to enhance and perfect my photographs and by categorizing them, I will only work on the ones that are worth it (5 star rating).

If you are going to buy 1 book on PSE9, this is the one. I don't have time to go through tutorial after tutorial to learn what I need to do (am a dad, a software engineer learning boatloads of new technologies, an avid cyclist with a number of events coming up) so this book is the ideal book for me. If you have lots of time to sit around and do tutorials, then one of the classroom in a book series might be nice (had that for CS2 and never had time for it).

Bottom line, this gives you the steps to perform the most essential tasks of PSE9 that will benefit your photography the most.

Photoshop Elements 9 Simplified 2 Mar. 2011
By K. Davis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What's not to like about this guide? It uses color and photos with explanations for every step of every process in the learning. Anyone can learn Photoshop with a guide like this. Now, this particular book covers the Top 100 Tips & Tricks of using PS. Since my job entails taking a lot of photos, and accepting the photos submitted by others, I want to know the best ways to organize, sharpen images to the extent they can be, and all the best ways to handle what I have to work with. But work isn't the only function it serves. The software, and therefore the 100 top tricks too, have become an invaluable tool for ALL my photo work. When I send my family pictures that I know will interest them, I want to be certain that what I send looks professional.

PS Elements 9 by Rob Sheppard 10 July 2011
By Riverrunner7 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been trying to find a book on PS Elements 9 for a couple of my 12-14 year old grandkids starting out with photography. Most of the other books were too long and too complicated. This book is what I was looking for, with easy to understand directions and pictures of the software page you're dealing with for a particular task. It uses a step by step approach with minimal text and maximum pictures. I also know Rob Sheppard to be excellent from other photography books he has written. I Recommend this text highly.
