It's not taking pictures that scares you; it's what to do with them afterwards that you find daunting when you consider making the move from traditional photography to digital photography. With Photoshop Elements and this friendly guide, it doesn't have to be. Eschewing a raft of technical details and advanced editing techniques for need-to-know basics, this volume provides everything you require to begin managing your photo life with the Windows version of Photoshop Elements 3 (which has Photoshop Album built in). After providing a quick introduction to the world of digital photography, veteran author Michael Slater--who's also one of Album's creators--shows you how to get and store photos, organize and find them, perform simple image correction tasks, create fun projects (video CDs, print and electronic cards, and calendars), print digital photos (at home, online, or at retail processors), and share your favorite shots. Throughout, the focus is on keeping it simple and fun while taking advantage of all of Photoshop Elements' cool features.
