I own and use the Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 and Adobe Premiere Elements 7 software suite, and I own copies of the books Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 Digital Classroom by the Aquent Creative Team, as well as Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 & Adobe Photoshop Premiere 7 Classroom in a Book Collection: The Official Training Workbook from Adobe Systems, published by Adobe Press.

And now I own a copy of Steve Grisetti's Guide to Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements 7. I bought Steve's book (and I call him Steve because I've communicated with him online and speaking as a former brick and mortar bookstore operator who has met many authors, Steve is hands down one of the friendliest and most down to earth authors I've met) primarily because of difficulties I kept running into using Premiere 7 to edit video shot on high definition camcorders, problems that were not addressed in Adobe's "Official Training Workbook."

What I want and need when it comes to help with video editing, is a lot of hand holding and plain English. I'm not a computer geek. I'm a late middle aged man who could never figure out how to program a VCR or even set the clock on one back when VCR's were in vogue, and I sure as heck can't figure out without a lot of easy-to-comprehend help how to use any but the most elementary features of Premiere.

When I recently purchased a green screen (from an online source recommended by Steve at the Muvipix site), I figured it would take me several days of trial and error experimentation to figure out how to edit green screen video in Premiere. But with Steve's book in hand, it literally took me under 5 minutes.

Steve's latest book, which weighs 1.5 pounds and sells for $30, is packed with useful information for those who are interested in getting the most "bang for their buck" from the PSE/PRE7 bundle.

In the Introduction to the book, Steve writes, "And one of the biggest challenges to writing a book like this is giving as many features as much coverage as possible without getting bogged down in them."

Over the past 2 weeks, when I've had to create six 5-minute slide shows and a 23-minute video plus a 4-DVD project that records a 5-hour dance contest (complete with HD Motion BGs, animated titles and gorgeous transitions), Steve's book has been invaluable.

Have you got a problem with your project that Adobe's Help files do not solve? You say you wish you had access to some royalty-free music for use in your productions? You wish you could download, for free if you are member, a variety of other media, including SD and HD Motion Backgrounds, many of them beautiful enough to take your breath away? You would like one-on-one advice not only from Steve, a recognized expert on Adobe products, but also from other highly-experienced and knowledgable individual who are more than willing to share their wisdom?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, then check out the muvipix web site, for which Steve is one of the Founders

Steve you have done it again. I find this book very clear and concise--easily understood. I have PSE7 & PRE7 and having all your references and how tos all in one book, makes it so much easier. This book along with [...], is winning combination. I would highly recommend this book for the beginner as well as someone with a higher level of experience.. Be sure to check out [...]. A source of valuable information..

I had hoped for a "How to" book, but in contrast I found that the book is just a listing of all of the features of the two programs. This is what "filter" does, this is what the "Info Palette" does etc.

At my in-experienced level I had hoped for something along the lines of a step by step guide to use the organizer suggesting how to import the photographs and categorize them, then moving forward to editing in the same simplistic way. I needed to be lead toward the goal, perhaps I needed a "Dummies" guide. This book is more of a reference guide.

The other problem is with the illustrations, they are small, in black and white and almost impossible to see. A manual dealing predominantly in color needs illustrations to match. I am aware that it would be cost prohibitive to print a full color manual, but having them posted on a web site would have been a good idea, and it that way reading the manual and seeing the diagram, albeit in a different place would have added considerably to the experience.

Another alternative would be an included CD.
