Format: Paperback
Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 is an excellent product. However, it contains almost no documentation and can strain the defination of "user friendly". This book is an essential training & reference guide for the product. Each chapter cover a topic. The pages are in full color, with notations of where to find the item on the screen. Since each screen is reporduced, you have almost no guess work or endless searching.
The topics are presented in a logical sequential manner that works you through the system. This book will alllow you to get the most out of the software. In addition, it allows you to stop when you have what you need for you photo editing.
An index allows you to quickly find a specified action and the format of the books walks you through the steps to do it. The text is both easy to understand without talking down to the user.
This book works both as a training and reference tool. I'm very happy with mind and it helps me get the most out of the product. My suggestion buy them together!

I purchased Elements 7,and knew that I would need some help with it.I looked at every instruction manual available,and,being a "visual-learner,"thought this might just be the one.It is.It does exactly what it says it's going to do.Simply and with lots of pictures.That works best for me.
I will never be able to afford the Mother of all photo programs,but Elements has served me well,and this latest version will be even easier with the help of this book.

I was overwhelmed by my Adoble Elements Program and all it could do until I found this wonderful, visual learning tool. The book is laid out and organized very well, so you can go through the book front to back, or skip ahead to find the information you need. It is numbered and color-coded to illustrate every step of instruction, so you're always oriented.
It really helped me get the most out of Elements, which is saying a lot.

All I want are the facts: What menu do I need to open to perform a specific function and what affect do the sliders have? This book answers those questions, saving me time and eliminating the frustration of using an excellent program burdened with a poor user interface.

A good book for quick reference on "how to" methods. Not great as a learning document, but, very good in getting to the heart of a problem quickly. Nice job!

I had Photoshop Elements 7 on my computer for a long time but could never figure out quite how to do more than crop a photo. This book taught me enough to actually start using the program. The pictures are good and the explainations easy to understand.
