Excellent Text for Initial Learning
on March 3, 2014
I was very pleased with this book. The author was truly a teacher who knows how to teach a course on software to someone who may not be very familiar with the product. Although I have used Elements for years off and on, I never "learned" to use it with confidence. I recently decided that I would buckle down and learn to use it after I read the reviews about the many features that had been added to Elements that I had not been successful in learning the full Photoshop program. I am a "hobbyist" photographer who needs the initial "handholding" and not a graphic designer. The text is very good at explaining and defining the many processes within the program. It also contains references to its companion text, Photoshop Elements 12, All-in-One for Dummies, which goes into much more detail about those photographic processes that the reader may also want to explore. For me, this book is exactly what I needed for the inspiration to learn to use Photoshop Elements 12 with confidence.
