Three Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 books reviewed

On February 24, 2012, in Book Review, Photography, by Elisa Pacelli

If you’ve been reading my reviews over the last several months, you may have noticed I’ve been on an Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 (PSE10) kick. Today I present the finale of these reviews: three books that can help you learn and enjoy using PSE10. It’s truly amazing what you can do with PSE10 and a little knowledge!

Photoshop Elements 10 All-In-One for Dummies
Authors: Barbara Obermeier and Ted Padova
Publisher: Wiley
Price: $39.99 US, $47.99 CN, £27.99 UK
652 pages
ISBN: 978-1-118-10739-3

Photoshop Elements 10 All-In-One for Dummies can be considered the bible and “go-to” book for all things PSE10. Calling this book comprehensive is an understatement! Authors Barbara Obermeier and Ted Padova mention in the introduction that they asked the publisher for more space in the book so they could add even more information to an already jam-packed tome. I can’t imagine what more could be added!

Adobe Photoshop Elements 10
A Beginner’s Review-Part 2

On November 28, 2011, in Review, by Elisa Pacelli

Adobe Photoshop Elements 10
Company: Adobe
Requires: multicore Intel processor, Mac OSX 10.5.8 or higher, QuickTime 7
Price: $99.99, upgrade $79.99

In part 1 of this review I focused on the Adobe Elements 10 Organizer. Now we’ll talk about the Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 Editor.

New to PSE10 is the ability to paint effects onto specific photo areas. Use the Smart Brush in the toolbox to create new ways to work with and visualize your photos. The first photo below is the original I took of a cruise ship. In the second photo I applied a Pencil Sketch to highlight the ship and give the photo a little interest. Since the sky was a bit overcast the day the photo was taken, I brightened it up in the third photo. Finally, just for fun, I gave the entire photo a fluorescent glow.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 10-A Beginner’s
Review Part 1

On November 8, 2011, in Review, by Elisa Pacelli

Adobe Photoshop Elements 10
Company: Adobe
Requires: multicore Intel processor, Mac OSX 10.5.8 or higher, QuickTime 7
Price: $99.99, upgrade $79.99

When Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 was released a number of years ago, I decided to buy it, even though I had no graphics experience whatsoever. I even bought a book to teach me how to use it. Sadly, I used PSE6 mainly to create coupons for my husband’s business, slightly edit screen shots I take for MyMac.com articles, and superimpose faces on other people’s bodies (Don’t ask. It’s silly.) So when the opportunity arose for me to review Adobe Photoshop Elements 10, I jumped at the chance to really sit down and learn about some of the fun and powerful techniques I could use with this software.

Keep in mind that this review is coming from a novice’s perspective. Even though I have used PSE6 in the past, my experience is so limited that I’m still considered a newbie. For a more in-depth review of PSE10 from a user who has an extensive Photoshop background, check out MyMac.com writer Donny Yankellow’s article.
