I recently had the opportunity to review a copy of the OS X Mountain Lion Pocket Guide from O’Reilly media. In typical O’Reilly fashion, the book is well written with friendly, conversational jargon.

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.
