What makes this book easy to use? Its user friendly, with clear easy to follow instructions. The colour pictures are of a good quality for each task in Elements. What you see in the book, you see on the monitor screen. Page layouts are consistent and the print clear. Getting started with Elements 6 couldn't be smoother. The book is basic and more advanced. For anyone new to Elements 6 or upgrading from older versions, this is the book to buy.

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 was a bit concerned about some previous comments on this book but I needn't have worried. It's very well structured and comprehensive in dealing with all that Elements 6 have to offer. Lots of examples and pictures with tips, warnings and new feature flags.
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.

The Dummies series scores again. It is difficult to render the black/grey interface correctly in print so that the reader can make sense of the screenshots - this book gets it right. Certainly better than a dearer alternative book for Version 7 in that respect. Well recommended to users of Elements 6.

I found Elements 6 for Dummies to be a confusing and unhelpful guide to a great software programme. It appears to have been written more to impress readers with the skills and knowledge of the authors rather than as suggested in the title as a simple vehicle to understand and use this feature rich ( is that too feature rich ?)programme. Does it really need 400 pages to explain the major features of Elements 6, I don't think so. Any number of photographic journals have shorter simpler guides to using photo enhancement software and you'll get lots of other photographic tips for your money.

Really disappointed.
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.

Quality book? Very much so.

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.
