  • I was particularly impressed by the way in which it deals with raw processing
  • Noise on photographs can also be a problem and when using noise removal software the difference between chroma (color) noise and luminance noise can a source of confusion to the novice
  • There are more than 100 Tips in this book although several of them relate to the use of plug-ins which must be purchased from third parties and are quite expensive particularly when compared with the cost of Photoshop Elements 9

      Late in 2010 Adobe realeased Version 9 of Photoshop Elements. The “how to” material supplied with the software is spartan to say the least and finding such material either through the help files or as tutorials on the web is inconvenient when one is trying to work with the software itself. A range of third party manuals has rapidly appeared but these are mostly quite expensive. This book is one of the least expensive and attractive for that reason. It follows a similar book for version 8 and appears to be an

      update of the earlier version. The updating seems to have slipped up in two areas:

      1. The toolbox interface for the “Full Edit” mode shown in the book is set out in 2 columns and includes the crop icon. In my Version 9 there is only a single column toolbox and the crop icon is not there. In order to use the crop one must open the image dialogue box and look for it there.

      2. A major feature of version 9 is the magic extractor tool. There is no reference to this tool anywhere ...

        This book approaches Photoshop Elements 9 as three programs in one — The Organizer, the Raw Processor and the Editor. I was particularly impressed by the way in which it deals with raw processing. This is a topic which is usually the preserve of professionals and simple explanations are difficult to find. The book walks the reader step by step through the appropriate processes. Noise on photographs can also be a problem and when using noise removal software the difference between chroma (color) noise and luminance noise can a source

        of confusion to the novice. This book provide the simplest and most straightforward explanations of these topics I have seen.

        There are more than 100 Tips in this book although several of them relate to the use of plug-ins which must be purchased from third parties and are quite expensive particularly when compared with the cost of Photoshop Elements 9. It may have been appropriate not to have included these and to have confined the book to Photoshop Elements itself.

        The book claims to use a Visual Learning system and in this it is successful.
