Better than nothing, I suppose, but it's not user-friendly at all. Perhaps if you work through it like a course book, it may be OK; it certainly seems to cover lots of 'how tos', but it's hard to find what you want. The index doesn't include a lot of the things you might want to find and the terminology isn't always intuitive. Once you've found what you need, the explanations are quite good, although some things need reading more than once, to understand them. Perhaps I really am a dummy!

Unless you know their terminology it's really quite hard to find anything you might want. Index not very clever. Other people must have had a grounding in Photoshop if they could make much headway with this. And then the pages started to fall out.

It's OK but doesn't always provide what you're looking for. Not a bad effort though and used in conjunction with Elements 12 it's good.

This is a good comprehensive guide, with more colour than in the past. One big drawback I found, was on the KINDLE version a lot of the text in the diagrams was not very clear at all.

Great book, have used elements since version 8, and like most users love the organiser but when it comes to the editor only utilise the main functions, which covers most needs, but there is so much more and this book's the manual. Do not be put off by the cheap price, this is the full version.

useful when you just bought Photosop Elements 12 and know hardly anything... (my case).
Now, (months later), I can manage pretty well but I still need the book to unveil a few points I haven't used yet.
Very pleased.
