Comedian and author Wally Wang offers a hilarious and helpful look at how to use Photoshop Elements to manipulate your digital photographs or create completely new images. Turn a mediocre picture into a good picture and a good picture into a spectacular one through a series of lessons that take you step-by-step through the many Photoshop Elements tools. With keen observations and deft language, Wang tells you how to select within an image, use the history palette to go back in time, poke out red eye, remove wrinkles and chins, and alter images with such essential tools as Clone, Warp, Bloat, and Pucker.
