Book Description
Are you ready for an Elements book that breaks all the rules–again?   Like the best-selling former edition, The Photoshop Elements 4 Book for Digital Photographers breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that’s rarely done–it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly "how to do it."

You can grab any other Elements book on the shelf, because they...
