I do not see how you can publish a book about Photoshop Elements 11 without addressing the relationship between the main software and the Adobe Camera Raw plug-in, currently at release 7.3. Although not all cameras offer the RAW option, many do, and for the owners of those, this is an important aspect of getting the best out of your camera, and of Elements 11.
Some aspects which I hoped to see addressed in the book, and was disappointed not to find, include:
1. When to shoot in RAW. What you gain and lose in comparison with JPEG.
2. Colour bit depth considerations especially.
a. How to ensure that when you open a RAW file in Elements, you can accommodate the full range of information which your camera puts in it.
b. What adjustments, such as noise, sharpness et al, it is best to carry out in the ACR processor, and which are best postponed to the main Edit workspace.
c. When you load a 16 bit RAW image in the main Elements Edit workspace, if, when and why you choose to convert from 16 bit to 8 bit mode - e.g. use of Layers, saving as JPEG. Differences here between Elements and full Photoshop CS.
3. Organizer speed. How to get it to run at an acceptable rate.
4. Workflow considerations in general, possibly divided into:
a. A quick pass on a set of family snaps in JPEG form
b. Getting the best out of a set of JPEG shots
c. Preparing a high quality RAW shot for publication, exhibition or competition
