Elements 6 is no longer the cut down version of Photoshop that it once was. Adobe have included more of the best features from their new Photoshop, without compromising the enjoyment of using Elements. Photoshop Elements for Dummies, successfully addresses the changes in this new Elements version.
I previously had Elements 2 on my computer and hardly recognised the new software. I needed guidence on how to handle the new layout and how to use all the features. The content fitted the bill perfectly.
The quality of the print and paper is excellent too. My only gripe is that the book won't lay open on the desk on its own. It's glue bound. This means that if you are following a particular chapter, you have to lay something heavy across the open pages.
Text did not match that which I saw on the Elements screens.
Tells you what to do but not HOW to do it e.g. 'open color swatches' but doesn't tell you how.
Assumes that a 'dummy' will understand photographic jargon. I'm a dummy and I don't - that's why I bought the book! (What are 'Layers'? - mine lay eggs down the yard).
Waste of money. Avoid.
Easy to read? Well, yeah, but seems more formal than other Dummies somehow.
Cover all the right stuff? Yeah, suppose, but spends a huge amount of the book going on about the Organiser (not interesting!!!!).
Best book on Elements? No... though I don't know what is, but this isn't it.
