Photoshop Elements 3 for Windows Book Review

Ian Burley of Digital Photography Now has posted a glowing review of a book available for users of Photoshop Elements 3 aptly called "Photoshop Elements 3 for Windows One-on-One".

Photoshop Elements 3 is of course the powerful software package from Adobe with photo-editing functionality and intuitive organizing and sharing capabilities.

If you haven't yet read a One-on-One book, of which there are several, besides the two mentioned Photoshop examples, the formula goes like this: the book is divided into a series of lessons, in this case twelve, each of which is divided up in to bite-size chunks that are smaller than conventional chapters but more than just a paragraph. To support each lesson there is a corresponding video tutorial and you are encouraged to follow the examples provided, on your own PC, as you proceed.

On the video tutorials CD the lessons are presented in batches of three, with an introductory summary presented by McClelland with each batch. The video tutorials don't necessarily reflect the exact same examples in the book, which means you get more variety. I'd doubt that you would find the book hard going, but even if you did, the videos are there to hold your hand and keep up your learning momentum.
