Having just bought Photoshop Elements and never having used Photoshop before I bought this book on the strength of the reviews and because it had lots of pictures, which I hoped would make things clearer. It's OK, but doesn't go into as much depth as I hoped. I feel it assumes you know some stuff already. I haven't found it that clear to follow and often end up thinking, 'yes, but what about when this happens' or 'how do I do that though'. To be honest, in it's defense I think the best way to learn is to watch someone else doing it and therefore I have found a wealth of videos out there that show how to use Elements and everything I've learnt so far has really come from those videos on the internet. So, it's a good book for back-up but it hasn't taught me how to use Photoshop Elements.
