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

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!

Many people are familiar with HTML and CSS, and think that’s all you need to put together to make a pleasing web site. Others feel that by using an application such as RapidWeaver or Adobe Dreamweaver, most of the work is done for them. Sadly for these people, that’s not the case.

David A. Crowder’s latest book, Building A Web Site For Dummies, takes the reader through the steps involved to, well, build a web site. The book is divided into five sections:

  • Building Your First Web Site
  • Building Better Web Pages
  • Adding Frills and Fancy Stuff
  • Making Money
  • The Part of Tens

The first section assumes you are at least familiar with HTML. Not necessarily an expert, but have a basic understanding of HTML code. Crowder then moves on to advanced HTML, including tables and frames. Finally, he tackles the topic of choosing a domain name and host for your newly created web site.

When I saw Wiley’s new Guitar for Dummies CD, I knew this was a piece of software that was right up my alley, and I wasn’t disappointed.
