The American version of PSE 12 is possibly slightly different to the one I have since under the section 'Opening non Raw files in Camera Raw' the book explains to go to the Edit menu in 'Organiser' and from the drop down menu select 'Open in Camera Raw', I don't appear to have that option.

Although I am still working through the book, it is, as you would expect from these two Authors, well written and the techniques are very well explained, some times perhaps a little bit too much, but then if you are new to post processing this would be extremely helpfull.

One of the major benefits of this book is that you don't need to have read, say Chapter 1, in order to understand what is going on in all the other chaperters; the exception being the very last Chapter. Hence you can dip in to it when and where you need.

I only have one criticism of the book, the illustrations are comparatively tiny, I appreciate that I am not 18 any more, but even a sharp eyed 18 year old would struggle to see the tiny details with or without the aid of a magnifying glass.

Apart from that, yes it is a book I would recommend, it teaches many techniques that I would have ordinarily stayed away from thinking they were far too complex, but, not they way they are explained in this book. I have learnt much!!!

This is not intended to be a complete coverage of PSE and is more oriented to doing certain jobs and tasks but in doing so you learn lots about PSE in general. It does cover most areas of PSE but not everything in every section. Well laid out with lots of screenshots to follow and you can download the images to practice on which is very helpful. I bought it to learn basics for creative editing that I cannot do in Lightroom and was struggling with the different select tools and layers and this book has give me that initial start that I needed.

Once again Scott Kelby has produced a book which is invaluable for use with Photoshop Elements 12.
Easy to follow and so useful for the amateur photographer even for the semi-pro.
This has transformed my photography and I can't recommend this book highly enough.

I gave the book only four stars because of the presence of numerous "cute" remarks on virtually every page of the book. When I am looking for pertinent information, these cute remarks are extremely annoying. Otherwise, the book is quite useful and well focused. The explanations are fully understandable and reproducible, and the author has made many of the photographs appearing in the book available via the internet. This is helpful when trying to reproduce the objectives of a particular chapter. The package arrived undamaged and prior to the anticipated date. Basically I am pleased with the book.

I like the very informative "discussion-al" style of this book. Whilst I haven't followed any projects with it, I have read many of them through in detail and have found it to have clear layouts and descriptions that I can understand. It also provides little nuggets of additional information which I appreciate as some books assume more practical computer etc skills than I have and I am often left stuck with less comprehensive book styles.

I bought Photoshop Elements because most filter manufacturers do not provide filters for other image editors than Photoshop. I have always worked with other image editors so I bought this book for a quick start with Photoshop Elements. Therefore, being a novice on this product probably every book would have done for me. Nevertheless I found this book well done and full of advises that I otherwise would have discovered by "trial and error". Not being an expert on Photoshop, my review must be taken with a grain of salt but I would certainly suggest this book to anyone starting to work with Photoshop Elements. It will shorten your learning curve.

Have gone from PSE5 through PSE6,9 and now 12 with Matt Kelby's books close to hand through each upgrade. IMO, although the PSE 12 version is marginally different from previous versions, it is still the best supplementary tool you need and I heartily recommend it. Ignore MK's sometimes puerile sense-of-humour but read, mark and inwardly digest the hints, tips and other little gems you will find amongst the clear, straightforward info and images in the book.

This book is in my view very interesting for people WHO wants a practical and well illustrated approach to PSE opportunities. By following guidelines which takes its departure in a concrete problem and or wish to improve a photo and or create a "artistic" Photo you have in this book a great helper.
