A useful guide to an increasingly complicated tool
on 10 April 2014
A comprehensive guide to using a now complex (and sometimes counter-intuitive) piece of software. The book reflects the nature of the software, which has grown from a simple intuitive and user-friendly tool into something requiring significant training and practice.
I had hoped that the book would solve two problems I was experiencing with the new version, namely why I couldnt drop a photo onto the desktop icon as before, and why I couldnt simply arrange 3 or 4 photos on a single canvas. The book doesnt address these problems. It seems these simple functions no longer exist.
Nevertheless, a useful book. Some typos, but the book lives up to its name. It is a classroom in a book, and, provided the reader is prepared to invest time in doing the exercises, is worth the investment.
