5.0 out of 5 stars The Right Book for a Beginner Like Me Nov. 1 2010
By Citizen John - Published on Amazon.com
I've wanted to catch up with so many people who really work with their digital cameras and the results they get from them. For example, I've wanted to get to the point where I feel confident sharing quality customer images for products listed on Amazon. This Picture Yourself book is designed with somebody like me in mind, as I'm the kind of learner who needs to get a complete foundation in a subject I want to learn.

I like that the author, Deane Koers, does not assume that I know anything about photo editing. She's had practice writing for beginners in that she's written several books in the Dummies and also Picture Yourself series. For example, this book gives the nitty gritty of organizing image files, something experienced photo editors have learned over time.

A time-saving feature of PaintShop Pro Paintshop Photo Pro X3 Ultimate is that you can apply quick fixes to images and then apply those edits to a batch. Or you can select the best images and take the time in the Raw Image Editor to professionally edit images. There are many ways to use this program.

Picture Yourself Learning Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3 has a great Glossary and an equally great Index. Features like these that make a book an often superior learning tool to a program's help menu, and the book supplements the program's Learning Center. I recommend this book.

I am new to Corel so I purchased this book to help navigate the program. I am new to ANY kind of photo editing other than picasa which is as basic as it gets. I think this book is a great guide and easy to follow. Easy for the beginner to pick up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great learning tool Dec 26 2010
By Elizabeth A. Koch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased a new laptop with Windows 7 to replace my 8-year-old desktop running Windows XP. For years I'd been using Microsoft Digital Image Suite which I loved. I discovered that Microsoft no longer makes that program, so I opted for Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3. I'm just beginning to find my way around the program, and although I was happy to see that the software came with a manual, it's a very small one with black and white pictures. It seems to me that in order to understand the "befores and afters", you need to be able to look at color photos. I also wanted more detail, as I've been really wanting to delve deeper into photo editing. I browsed through the learning manuals available and decided on "Picture Yourself Learning Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3" and I think it's a great book. It's well-organized, with loads of color photos. It's easy to jump right to a topic, but I'm working my way through the whole book step-by-step, and it's really helping me learn a lot. I highly recommend it. By the way - it's available in a Kindle edition, and I'm a long-time Kindle owner, but I like manuals such as this to be a physical book that I can refer to when I need to.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book to have for PaintShop Photo Pro X3 Feb. 8 2011
By Richard L. Steiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very complete guide to the Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3. It is well illustrated and easily read. The book is full of colorful illustrations and examples. The text is direct and the understandable. It is not full of jargon or terms that are not explained.

The instruction book that comes with the PaintShop Photo Pro X3 is a good basic starter, but this book by Diane Koers goes far beyond that. It is worth the money and what you want to keep close at hand as you learn what PaintShop Photo Pro X3 can do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Making great and fun pictures Feb. 2 2011
By Old-fashioned Looney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used PSP since it was Jasc PaintShop Pro 7 back in 2003. At the time it had more usable feature for working with pictures and was easier to use and understand than any of the others. I have taken pictures with major camera's for years even had a hard working darkroom in a small shed. I have even been blessed by winning some recognition in the field, but have never considered myself a professional. This program let me use the new digital cameras and work my pictures to perfection and I am not a computer buff. Corel had it's own program but, for me there were several TOOLS that not only baffled me but didn't work near as well. The Straighten Picture and Red Eye Removal Tools are so simple it is amazing and also not surprising that Corel captured PSP and started incorporating the best PSP Tools with their own. With this book I am learning soooo much more and making some fantastic photos, greeting cards, scrapbook pages. My husband and I are well over 50 and still learning. We also teach a digital photography class to the elderly in a PC Users Group using PSP. Us old folks got Grandkids and Great-grandkids we gotta record for posterity cause those progeny are wasting their photos on cell phone cameras and not saving them for the future.
