Photoshop Elements 10 the Missing Manual,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Photoshop Elements 10: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals) (Paperback)
This book is comprehensive and covers every feature to be found in the Photoshop Elements 10 (PSE10) software for Windows and Mac.
Although there are pictures (of the software in use) in the book, I would say this book, compared to other books I have used, is more text heavy. The book explains the features in the program and what they do. It also lists the 'key short-cuts' to access these features.
For the more complex areas e.g. creating panoramas, working with layers, creating fancy text etc, there are step-by-step guides, but again these are text heavy.
As with all programs like PSE10, there is a steep learning curve. If you are buying this book as a 'how to' guide; it just about works. But I would say you need to be confident around computers and be willing to experiment and spend time with the program. (I have seen better photoshop 'how to' magazines in the newsagents.)
I think this book is more suited as a reference book, and used as such, is a very good book.
