A good introduction to Elements 3.,
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)This book is in the same class as Scott Kelby's Photoshop Elements 3 book. They are good introductory books. Both offer step by step instructions for using the program. Kelby's book offers more techniques (e.g., replacing red eye with a color and straightening crooked pictures are just two examples) but little background information about the techniques.

Best One Of The Lot!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)After purchasing ( and returning ) several other volumes, I saw this book and figured "what the hay". I wasn't disappointed. Unlike the other so-called instruction books " Adobe photoshop Elements 3.0 CIB " is clear consise and to the point. This is the only book that I made through all the way. I highly recommend this book for the beginning Adobe Photoshop Elements user.Adobe seems to have gone out of the way to make "happy users" with this product. As for me, well, I'm off to do more of the work I never thought I could do. BUY THIS BOOK!

This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 Classroom in a Book (Paperback)This is a great book to learn to navigate the program. I was a complete newcomer to the program, and although I wouldn't qualify myself as a pro, this book has helped me master the main elements of the program and taught me to reason through using other techniques. It's a must have for lessons and reference!
