poorly illustrated and disorganized Dec 4 2010
By clc - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For a book about visual editing, this one is woefully lacking in helpful illustrations. The few screenshots reproduced are of such poor quality that the names on the taskbars and menus can hardly be read. The more abundant but still too few photos used to illustrate features of the software are almost useless since they fail to show the element of the feature. For example, in the section on selecting parts of the photo to edit, the lines to mark the section of the photo selected are almost invisible and things like the lasso cursor are about the size of a pinprick. Other reviewers had mentioned these shortcomings but I thought the book would be worthwhile at a discounted price since I had liked the "For Dummies" books purchased in the past. I was wrong wrong wrong. Even the text proved to be too frustrating to be of much help. The instructions were constantly referring the reader to an earlier or later section of the book to explain something or other. If this is where the Dummies series is headed, then they really are for dummies like me who waste their money on poorly illustrated, poorly organized and generally useless manuals.

Good Purchase! Dec 16 2010

Unless you are already familiar with the details of digital photography, and I'm talking about pixels, bits, file types, etc, you will need a guide to steer through this complex software. Although I haven't read the entire guide yet, it is laid out very logically and the first few chapters give you the basics of what you have to know. From there, you can skip around and get creative. Recommended!

Excellent for beginners to digital photography! Nov. 19 2010
By Shirley Hercules - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had never done any more with photography than automatic point and shoot cameras, both film and digital. I had no idea what f stops and ISOs were. This book introduced me to the concept of exposure and what the factors affecting exposure are. Then it got into more detail, all with great reference to the digital camera's buttons and bells have on them. The organization of the book was extremely well done, beginning with basics and then going on to more complicated issues. It is one of the best Dummies books that I have read.

Photoshop Elements 9 for Dummies Feb. 7 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great reference book. Easy to follow. Covers layers well. I recommend it as first book to beginners. elements 9 is so incredible, it is pretty similar to regular PhotoShop, very powerful. I use this book and tutorials online (PS site, and YouTube tutorials are free an plentiful) to wade thru what Elements 9 can do. Recommended book.

Photoshop 9 for Dummies March 26 2011
By Doris - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a Dummie! Have used PSE 2 for years, and most of my knowledge cannot be transferred so the book is important! Very disappointed. I need the basics and I can't find basic topics in the index. If I happen to find it, I write it in the index, in case I need it again. Several do not appear in the book at all. I find the coverage of both operating systems distracting and confusing. Two books would be much better for the users. (I cross out the material on the other system.)
