I have B Bs previous Elements Missing Manuals (Elements 3 & 4),all are excellent guides,& this for Elements 5 is no exception.Especially as this version is in full colour.

B B does not pull her punches if she thinks Adobe has not got it quite right.Throughout the book you get the feeling that she is talking TO you...not AT you.

There is also a good backup site for extras & questions.

This should be a mandatory acquisition for all Elements 5

(would be)owners as El 5 is a considerable improvement over version 4!

If you only want one book to guide you through Elements 5

this is it.

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.

I have bought quite a few books about Photoshop Elements over the last few years, and this is the one I can rely on to answer any question I may have about this complex piece of software. Barbara Brundage writes in a straightforward way, not talking down to the reader or trying to crack pointless jokes to jolly them along. The book follows a logical progression, is well laid out, and most-importantly has a very comprehensive index at the back.

Some books are glossier with more photographic examples, but this one explains the concepts of Photoshop Elements in a clear way and every time I look at it I discover more features of the program than I would find any other way. It does not have the worked examples with catchy titles like some instruction books (how to change your friend's hair colour, how to make a greeetings card etc), but personally I find that few of these are every really relevant to what I want to do anyway. What it does to is to use the software intelligently so that I can easily work out how to perfrom specific tasks.

This is far and away the best instruction book for Elements 5 and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who wants to move beyond the instant fix buttons in the program and explore its more complex features.

This book is absolute mustard, it covers everything in a clear and concise manner. Dont't waste your time looking any futher; this is by far the best instruction book I have ever pupchased. It covers every topic in depth, but still remains understandable to a 62 year old.

I find this book really heavy going. I pick it up and put it down again very quickly.

To me it's not in a logical order. I purchased Photoshop Elements 10 and this book to get up and running very quickly. There is lots of information but the book is quite academic and there is a wealth of information there. However, I have learned more by following examples in photographic magazines which take you from start to finish. I'm a visual person and prefer a step-by-step guide.

This book is really on top of the heap! Far better than Scott Kelby's; she does'nt bother with the slush. Just plain straight talking as it were.

If you only buy one elements book.........

This is the second "Missing Manual" that I have bought for Photoshop Elements. It totally outclasses the other manuals. It is clearly and logically laid out and well indexed. The writing is clear and simple. It is a big manual but it is easy to tackle by reading up one small piece at a time and a few trials.

I was particularly impressed by their sections on image improvements. Adjusting exposure, brightening colours, lifting shadows the list was endless and simply explained.

Its not cheap but worth it!

The information contained in the manual is invaluable, it's a constant reference point for me as a former Photoshop user, and if you are completely unfamiliar, slightly familiar or very familiar with the Photoshop products, you will find something you didn't know before. Well worth the price.
