The recent boom in digital camera sales has created a tremendous demand for simple yet powerful photo-editing software. This is because experienced users, as well as amateurs, are quickly outgrowing the program that was originally bundled with their cameras.Fortunately, Photoshop Elements 3, the latest photo-editing software from Adobe, is filling this void. It allows users to achieve high-quality results without the overwhelming complexity of professional-level software. And it's also affordable. As a result, it is the best-selling photo-editing software on the market today. Yet, while Photoshop Elements 3.0 seems to have everything going in its favor, it is missing one very important element: a manual that explains all of its incredible capabilities.To help consumers truly understand this software, there's now Photoshop Elements 3: The Missing Manual. This comprehensive guide from Barbarba Brundage offers page after page of valuable insight into this popular program, making it the only book readers will need on the topic.Photoshop Elements 3: The Missing Manual does a whole lot more than just point out how to straighten photos, crop, and adjust the color and focus. It's a collection of wonderful tips and tricks, from how to make basic selections to advanced color correction strategies, and from classic darkroom techniques to stylized digital effects. Each feature is carefully explained in easy-to-understand language, so that everyone from professional shooters to hobbyists can benefit. Among other lessons, readers will learn how to:

  • Instantly fix flaws using Elements' Quick Fix mode
  • Gain control with sliders, zoom tools, and before and after views
  • Easily organize photos by calendar or keyword label
  • Make dynamic slide shows with transitions, captions, music, and narration
  • Create themed photo email
Whether you're a hobbyist or a professional photographer, Photoshop Elements 3: The Missing Manual will help you become a more efficient, sophisticated digital camera user.

Repeating what Ferguson said. As an amateur photog with semi-professional aspiratons who loves my Nikon digital camera, I'm finding this book exactly what I needed.

Comments about oreilly Photoshop Elements 3: The Missing Manual:

You would think TMM and I were attached at the hip. Everytime I sit down at the computer to edit my photgraphs, you can bet TMM is sitting on my desk for ready reference. I was really at a loss after getting my Photoshop Elements 3 program a couple of weeks ago. The operating instructions that comes with the program provided little help for this non-nerd. TMM came to the rescue. The easy to understand and non-technical information in this book has made my photo editing efforts a breeze. I look forward to each day learning something more about Photoshop Elements 3 with the help of TMM. I am about 1]4 of the way through the book and am anxiously looking to finishing the book so that I can realize the full benefits of the Photoelemets 3 program.

Photoshop Elements 3

Comments about oreilly Photoshop Elements 3: The Missing Manual:

I have only had the book a few days and the software for only a week. I was a Version 2 user for quite a while and decided to have a look see at what it was about. I like a number of things better than Version 2. The scan and fix multiple photos is a great feature. The new shadows and highlights fix is one I am using a lot and find this a great fast fix tool. I had already purchased a differing book last week but found it lacking.

After a good hour of looking thru the Missing Manual one I said THIS is the one I SHOULD have purchased first! Easy to understand, easy to find the parts I need, and written so non nerds can figure out what is being said and instructed. Many thanks for making digital photograph editing not so mysterious and now fun again.
