Format: Paperback
In the past I have had Photoshop loaded on my computer, but I rarely used it unless it was to use the autocorrection features. Each year I have a ton of vacation pictures to clean up every year and since I am a programmer I have the occasional need to create graphics. 85% of the time I used a less complex tool like Paint.net.

I' say for the past 2 to 3 years my wife has started making photo albums using online services. She now has the need to do more with the photos than we have in the past. We have been using one software to clean up the images, and then using one of the online services to create the photo books. She also has started making custom cards. Photoshop Elements looked like it may handle all three needs.

I have seen Photoshop Elements in the past, but never really took the time to learn about it. I got this book to see if it can handle our needs before I purchase the software.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for anyone who has a large photo collection and who wants to use Photoshop Elements 11 to organise and edit their photos on their computer. The book covers everything you'd ever be likely to want to do with your photos other than preparing them for publication in a book (which is the one situation where the author suggests that you should be looking at obtaining the full version of Photoshop as Elements doesn't have all the options necessary to prepare photos for book publication). The book covers all aspects of photo processing from when you first offload them from the camera onto the computer, through how Elements can apply quick fixes to try to resolve the most common problems, manual fixing in expert mode, organising photos, and even how to prepare copies of the photos suitable to share with others either via email or via the web. The book does get a bit technical in places such as where it talks about calibrating your monitor to set the colour mode correctly but most of the sections of the book are written so that they can be used without necessarily having to apply everything else.

Both the Windows and Mac versions of the program are covered. There is very little in the book that deals specifically with one or the other and so the two versions of the program are presumably very similar in how they work. The book can therefore be used regardless of which of the two systems you use and would continue to be useful if you decided at some time to switch from one to the other or if you use both on different computers.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
O'Reilly's "Missing Manual" series claims each of their titles is "The book that should have been in the box". While I can't speak for the entire series, I have purchased and used several of them, including the missing manuals for three different versions of Photoshop Elements (PSE).

PSE 11 is generally similar at the user interface level to versions going back to PSE 8, and it is --like its predecessor versions-- extremely feature dense. This makes it both a powerful digital image editor, and a potential well of frustration for users. While PSE 11 includes some enhanced automated and guided image editing functions, users hoping to harness its full power will achieve this sooner if they grab some help. Barbara Brundage offers this assistance in a detailed guide that explores the higher functions of PSE, while respecting the challenges many readers may have in grasping complex technology.

Brundage offers both conceptual overviews and tutorials of PSE 11's interface and functions. She effectively breaks down the the concepts of file management, basic editing, image manipulation and sharing of the results of these digital editing techniques.

This book is particularly effective in addressing the two areas that can lead to delight --or despair-- among would-be photo editors: selection and layering in PSE.

The conceptual discussions and tutorials in this book are intelligently discussed and laid out in good detail. The companion materials to this book are online ("the missing CD"), and include links to sample images used for demonstrations in the book, and to other online resources to assist with PSE mastery. The author and creative team both have links to their own websites and email addresses listed in the introduction.
