Final Release Date: October 2008
Pages: 592

Photoshop Elements 7 includes lots of new tools for sprucing up your photos, like the Scene Cleaner that lets you get rid of unwanted elements and the Smart Brush that makes touch-ups a breeze. But the one thing you won't find in Elements is reader-friendly guidance on how to get the most out of this powerful program. Enter Photoshop Elements 7: The Missing Manual, ready to explain not only how the tools and commands work, but when to use them.

With this bestselling book (now in its 5th edition), you'll learn everything from the basics of loading photos into Elements to the new online photo-sharing and storage service that Adobe's offering (for free!) at Photoshop.com. There's so much to Elements 7 that knowing what to do -- and when to do it -- is tricky. That's why this book carefully explains all the tools and options by putting each one into a clear, easy-to-understand context.

  • Learn to import, organize, and fix photos quickly and easily
  • Repair and restore old and damaged photos, and retouch any image
  • Jazz up your pictures with dozens of filters, frames, and special effects
  • Learn which tools the pros use -- you'll finally understand how layers work!
  • Create collages and photo layout pages for scrapbooks and other projects
  • Fix your photos online and synch the changes to your own photo library

As always, author Barbara Brundage lets you know which features work well, which don't, and why -- all with a bit of wit and good humor. Dive into Adobe's outstanding photo editor and find out why this Missing Manual is the bestselling book on the topic.

Smaller is earier to handle

By Jeff Latham

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Photoshop Elements 7: The Missing Manual:

The book is too large to handle when working at a Pc.

I cut the book into six sections and bound them into separate folder (from any supply store) -- secure the sections with contact cement. This makes it much easier to use the sections.

The book is very good.

Comments about oreilly Photoshop Elements 7: The Missing Manual:

The book, as are all the Missing Manuals, is thorough, well-written, and entertaining. It would be perfect if David would let you use his good paper.

Fantastic

Comments about oreilly Photoshop Elements 7: The Missing Manual:

For me as a beginner, I learned more BEFORE I got to Chapter 1 than I did in one chapter of any other book on the subject. THANK YOU !! I am much less stressed with it all and now I don't see it as unsurmountable.

Way better than the help files.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Photoshop Elements 7: The Missing Manual:

I enjoy using Photoshop Elements a lot, and after reading this book for a while I found myself flipping through its pages when I had a questions, instead of reading the help files that come with the program.

It uses an easy to understand language and shows you every step of the way on how to do something.

I would recommend this book to anyone just getting started with Photoshop Elements or even those that have used the program for a while but want to use it to its full potential.
