While many image-editing software guides assume you already know all about photography this book includes tips throughout to help you shoot better. One of the opening quotes sums up the author's approach: "No longer will you look at an image simply for what it is. From now on you'll see what it can become". The pictures used to illustrate the various features of Elements are typical family snaps. Mikkel shows us how to make the most of Elements and enhance the family album. It's well written and thorough. There's a great section on enhancing facial features using various tools to whiten and reshape teeth, remove wrinkles and trim beards. Comes with a CD full of starter images so you can follow the step-by-step approach. If you aren't an expert Elements user after reading this book it may be time to take up stamp collecting!
