Are you ready for an Elements book that breaks all the rules-again?
Like the best-selling former edition, The Photoshop Elements 4 Book for Digital Photographers breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that's rarely done-it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly "how to do it." It's not a bunch of theory; it doesn't challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure things out on your own. Instead, it does something that virtually no other Elements book has ever done-it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why.
If you're looking for one of those "tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Mask-filter" books, this isn't it. You can grab any other Elements book on the shelf, because they all do that. Instead, this book gives you the inside tips and tricks of the trade for correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and presenting your photos like a pro. You'll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques are-once you know the secrets.
Newly updated to cover Photoshop Elements 4, this full-color, easy-to-follow guide includes new tips that take advantage of Elements 4's hottest new features, including the Magic Selection Brush, which offers a quick way to make accurate selections in your photos; Magic Extractor, which lets you select an image and instantly remove the background; Auto Red Eye and Auto Skin tone tools; cool slideshow effects (text, graphics, narration, pans and zooms, and more); online sharing service; and more!
This book is for Windows users only.
