Although there is a hint of a warning in the book's description, I think it's important to emphasize that this is not a beginner's book. The authors assume you know about how "layers" and other key aspects of Elements work. I was lost when it came to the editing portions of the book.

So if you are like me you do not use PS everyday. This book makes it easy to find the steps needed to tweak your photos. It gives you step by step instructions on how to make photo adjustments. I don't want to spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to sharpen the picture or adjust eh white balance. I love the way the book just walks you through the steps.

The author has an odd sense of humor that comes out in his chapter intros but I don't hold it against him.

Reading the other reviews, the difference between the reviewers who like it - and the ones who don't - seems to be the experience level. So, I'll explain my experience first.

This is the first book I've ever bought about using Elements. I researched to try to find one at the right level for me. All I know about Elements is self-taught in the past 2.5 years, reading online tutorials, and participating in a local digital photography club. I don't necessarily know the right terms, but I've figured out how to do most basic things. (I even discovered reading this book that I'd discovered some better techniques than they taught!) But, I was at the stage where I was frustrated. I know I have a good eye for composition. I know that I have some good pictures, well-composed, well-focused, and with sufficient resolution to turn out very high quality pictures. I've won some local contests. But, I couldn't get my pictures to have that final polish and pizazz I see in the national contest winners, the sample photos with the Microsoft programs, etc. So, I got this book.

I am thrilled with this book for me. A lot of it was familiar to me, but it also taught me tricks to make my photographs look better - give them the extra I was looking for through Elements. Also, it has made processing my digital pictures quicker by teaching me some short-cuts that I had never discovered.

There is a bit of fluff intro for each chapter - but the author warns you in the intro about that and suggests you skip them if you are the serious sort. The book doesn't have to be read in order. It can be used as a desk reference. Good table of contents and good index. I read it cover to cover, trying out everything new to me, the first weekend I had it.

If you've read any of Scott Kelby's other books, you'll know why I bought this one. He offers excellent, concise, easy-to-understand instructions for using Photoshop Elements 9 to fix common specific problems with digital photos. Unless you're already an expert with Photoshop Elements, this is a very good book to have on your bookshelf to help you get your digital photos looking their best if you're planning to use Photoshop Elements for that purpose.

I was amazed from the beginning at how much I learned from this book regarding light adjustments. I highly recommend it for any photographer who is new to Photoshop Elements, as well as veterans of the software who taught themselves and never found these things.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who plans to use the new Photoshop Elements 9 software - either new users or experienced users. This book will save you a bunch of time and will make you a more skilled user of the software. The writing style of Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski make the book fun to read, and their level of experience can't be beat. The images used in the demonstrations are available free online, so you can actually practice on the same images used in the book. This greatly enhanced the learning process for me.

After using Photoshop Elements 5 for years I thought it time to upgrade - was impressed with the write-up about removing unwanted things (like dead leaves in the middle of a lovely flower) and have it appear normal. It works!! I'm impressed. Worth it just for that. I'll have to play more to see what else it does, but this is what I was looking for. Love it.

I had the PS 5 version of this book, so I figured 4 versions later, something would have changed. Nope. It's basically the same stuff: some excellent 'insider tricks' but if you don't stick to the 'program' you'll get lost, which means if you want to experiment, this book won't help. I had the feeling the authors don't use PS elements anymore. Why would they given they are full photoshop experts? As they say about an actor giving a wooden performance, it seems they "called it in." Additionally, since PS elements 1, 2, 3, 4, etc., there has been a burgeoning industry of plug-ins, add-ons, and such that when added to elements, provide a much flexibility and control. Elements still has lousy noise reduction and its 'curve feature' is practically worthless (it doesn't do much more than levels does). Even a new feature, 'the magic brush' is very lame,and basically useless now that PS elements has an action feature. But this book doesn't mention that. There is a PS Elements book I have found more helpful in general that provides a whole catalog of 'third party' solutions--many of them free or under $15. If you want to go beyond the snapshotlevel, I don't think this book will get you there unless it inspires you to go further. If you are basically a Thanksgiving Day, birthday, family on a picnic shooter, (and that's fine) this book is excellent, but I don't think there are that many of the latter around anymore
