Publisher Description

This is the eBook version of the printed book.
This book (for Windows and Mac) breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that’s never been done before—it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly “how to do it.” It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure things out on your own. Instead, it does something that virtually no other Elements book has ever done—it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why. If you’re looking for one of those “tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Maskfilter” books, this isn’t it. You can grab any other Elements book on the shelf, because they all do that. Instead, this book gives you the inside tips and tricks of the trade for organizing, correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and presenting your photos like a pro. You’ll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques are—once you know the secrets.

You’ll learn:
The real secrets of how the pros retouch portraitsHow to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat (you’ll be amazed at how they do it!)How to use Camera Raw for processing not only RAW photos, but JPEGs and TIFFs, too! (And you’ll learn why so many pros like it best— because it’s faster and easier)The sharpening techniques the pros really use (there’s an entire chapter just on this!)How to deal with common digital camera image problems, including removing noise and avoiding halosThe most requested photographic special effects,  and much more!The Book's Secret Weapon
In this book, you’ll learn some slick workarounds, cheats, and some fairly ingenious ways to replicate many Photoshop CS5 features from right within Elements 9. Plus, since this book is designed for photographers, it doesn’t waste your time talking about how to frame a shot, setting your exposure, etc., and there’s no talk about which camera or printer to buy. It’s all Elements 9, step-by-step, cover-to-cover, in the only book of its kind!
