Publisher Comments:

Ideal for scrapbookers, serious and casual photographers, and budding graphic artists alike, Photoshop Elements 8 for Mac is more powerful and easier to use than previous versions. But figuring out how and when to use the program's tools is still tricky. With this book, you'll learn not only what each tool does, but also when it makes the most sense to use it and why. You get easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for everything from importing photos to organizing, editing, sharing, and storing your images. You'll also find a tour of Bridge, the ultra-deluxe file browser that comes with Photoshop CS4 --and Elements 8.

How do you use the Photomerge Exposure? How do Quick Fix previews work? With a gentle introduction to get you started quickly, and advanced tips to help you produce really creative work, this Missing Manual provides the answers you need.

  • Get crystal-clear and jargon-free explanations of every feature
  • Learn to import, organize, back up, 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
  • Remove unwanted objects from images with the new Recompose tool
  • Learn advanced techniques like working with layers and applying blend modes
  • Download practice images and try new tricks right away

Synopsis:

This relentlessly practical guide offers hard-to-find coverage of the Mac version of Photoshop Elements.

With coverage on how to use Elements alongside iPhoto, Aperture, and Lightroom, this book covers everything Mac digital photo mavens need to know to create stunning photos, slideshows, and more.
