I cant believe I wasted money to learn how to use the organizer!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Elements 11: Learn by Video (DVD-ROM)
I recently purchased the premiere elements tutorial, and it was very thorough, but this elements video was horrible. Not only is the narrator using a very monotone voice the whole time and using wasteful words, but there is little tutorial on the editor side of elements in expert mode. He didnt go over all the tools and what to use them for which is what I needed. But, If you want to learn the organizer this video will help you do that. He goes over the sliders to edit brightness, sharpening, and so forth, but does not cover any of the tools except red eye, recompose, whitening teeth, crop, spot healing tool. No mention of lasso and others. I wouldnt recommend this to anyone wanting learn the editor side in depth to anyone. This video was so boring due to the narrators boring tone throughout the whole video, I found myself fast forwarding through most of his jibbering just to get it over with.
UPDATE: I finally found a great tutorial on video, it is 12 hours long and very in depth, shows how to work with every tool, all about layers, this tutorial is so in depth I couldnt even get through it in one day and i stay at home and didnt even work along with the whole video, it is called learning adobe photoshop elements 11 by infinite skills, it is one hundred dollars on amazon, but if you go to their website its half the price, for some reason ratings are not allowed on amazon for this particular video, but it is really amazing, you wont regret buying that one, it has working files to work along with the video, its so in depth that I will probably have to watch it three times to get it to sink in.

Thanks for your concise review of the infinite skills video. I did some web searching and found the same video for 20% off the manufacturer's price you quoted, but as luck would have it, after I ordered it, I found it on yet another site for 30% off the manufacturer's price! If anyone is interested, they can do a web search on the title and pick from the many entries, since we are not allowed to give other websites or company's names in these reviews. Amazon must have now enabled reviews for the infinite skills video as I tried it just now, but didn't have a review yet. I'll be back when I get my video and try it. As for the video's length, there seems to be confusion as to the video's actual length with some reviewers claiming 7 hours and others 12.5 hours (the manufacturer's reported length). I guess 'your' mileage will vary!
