Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Photoshop Elements 9 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
After battling with CS4 for several years and purchasing and reading many books and magazines on Photoshop, I saw a demo of Elements 9 and purchased it, mainly for its ability to process NEF images and its many excellent auto functions. After printing and reading the manual that came from Adobe I was still struggling and sent for this book based on Amazon customer reviews. Wow, it makes everything so simple with easy to follow step by step guidance. I read it from cover to cover, before attempting setting my second licenced software up on a new laptop purchased for photography only and its guidance regarding importing,organising and tagging my images made each phase so simple, as is each stage of the editing instructions.
I just wish that I had found Scott's CS4 guide years ago. Both raw beginners and more experienced users will, I am sure find this book invaluable. I have now just finished reading The Digital Photography Book 1 and am about to order books 2 & 3. I cannot speak highly enough of this author, he is brilliant at explaining functions in a clear and concise way.
