1.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop Elements 10 for Dummies, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Photoshop Elements 10 For Dummies (Paperback)
This review is based on a short acquaintance with the book as I returned it having quickly found a number of shortcomings. Examples of these are: no outline of the program, no tour of the screen with simple explanations of the main functions, no section on restoring old photographs (which was the reason I bought the book), no 'getting started' guide, no accessible or easily understandable explanation of layers or how they should be used, no discussion on the source file format (jpg, tiff, bmp for example) and no accessible information on how to keep the file size reasonably small. Recent experience has shown that simple work can result in file sizes of 50MB and more.

At least the book did not use the jokey, gimmicky language that other Dummies books have used.

Authors need to put themselves in the position of the reader who wishes to learn the subject and may be starting from basics. I'm afraid that this author failed.

Amazon.com could not have been more helpful when I returned the book so 10 out of 10 for that!
