Format: Paperback
I have been a Photoshop Elements user since Version 2. While my artistic photography is strictly film-based (I am a large-format B&W specialist), I have used Photoshop Elements for many years when scanning and preparing my images for my web site [...] and other marketing and publicity activities. Over the past several years, Photoshop Elements has grown considerably in its power, and now contains many of the features traditionally reserved for the professional version of Photoshop. Philip Andrews' new book, Adobe Photoshop Elements 7, walked me through all of the new features in a clear and concise way, and is organized so that I can easily select specific subjects without sequentially reading all of the material before. This makes the book ideally suited for someone like me who has some basic knowledge, but needs to come up to speed on the new Elements features. However, the book also contains all of the step-by-step information for someone who is new to digital photography, organized in such a way that they can read as much or as little as they need, depending upon their existing knowledge. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to both the beginner and advanced amateur.

If you have Photoshop Elements 7 you owe it to yourself to get a cookbook like this one. I call them cookbooks because they go through all the steps to get the desired outcome with your photos. Although PE7 has better instructions included then previous versions, its nice to not have to go back and forth between the help section and your photo. This book is geared toward the beginner but includes more advanced techniques too. If you are just using PE7 in the autofix mode check out this book and unleash all the tools that are easy to use once you know they are there and how to get to them. Excellent book, highly recommend to anyone with PE7.

Any studying Photoshop Elements 7 will find this a fine introductory survey packed with tutorials for every step of Elements. From hundreds of images designed to show the specific results of every Elements 7 command to creating scrapbooks, albums, and making easy image changes, Adobe Photoshop Elements 7: A Visual Introduction to Digital Photography is a 'must' for any serious photography or Photoshop collection.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been using Adobe photoshop software since Element 2. Most of the time, I just used the basic features only (like cropping, auto level adjust, auto contract adjust...etc). I have tried to pick up some books to learn more about Adobe photoshop elements software. But most of the books are either too technical details, or too much descriptions (and less photos) that are difficult (or boring) to follow through.

But this book, "Adobe Photoshop Elements 7: Visual Introduction to Digital Photography" uses a quite different approach. It contains all of the step-by-step instructions to use each feature of the Elements software. A large collection of images are provided along the step-by-step instructions. I specially like that images are displayed side-by-side to show the difference of photo processing by the software. This really helps the readers appreciate the function of each operation, and help the reader understand what the expected results would be.

In summary, this book does a great job in presenting the Adobe Photoshop Elements in a visual way that is easier for people to follow. There are plenty of photo books for more advanced skills. But for beginners, this is an excellent book to start with.

A high quality reference for beginners and intermediate user.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 7: A Visual Introduction to Digital Photography By: Philip Andrews

I held off writing this review until I had a chance to read the entire book. Now that I did here are the comments I have.
You get what you pay for. The sheer quality of the cover and the paper for the pages is immediately apparent. The content matches the outside, so yes this book you can judge by the cover.
This book does not treat the user like a dummy or an idiot, it does not talk down to you.
It is not a rehash of the user manual or the help files. There is truly added content here. There is also a link to a webpage where you can see videos of the topics covered. You CAN use it in place of the manual also
There is an excellent comparison table of all the Photoshop and Photoshop Elements software versions. How to achieve similar results with various editions is very useful.
It is not only for beginners, intermediate users will benefit as well. For most of the settable adjustments the author has a suggested value. There are things like "10 commandments for filter usage" which offer tips that I had to learn the hard way. There are also "pro tips", but they were only intermediate in level. If you have more than 20 hours with Photoshop, you would have known them already.

Layers and layer blending is explain by illustrating what various modes do on a sample image. However this book is not really any better at explaining why to use the layers or various blending modes in the first place. I always feel like I am missing something here by being able to do all I need with the main layer and using history step back if I mess up something.
