This book (for Windows and Mac) breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers thata€™s never been done beforea€”it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly a€œhow to do it.a€ Ita€™s not a bunch of theory; it doesna€™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 donea€”it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why. If youa€™re looking for one of those a€œtell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Maskfiltera€ books, this isna€™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. Youa€™ll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques area€”once you know the secrets. Youa€™ll learn: The real secrets of how the pros retouch portraits How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat (youa€™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 youa€™ll learn why so many pros like it besta€” because ita€™s faster and easier) The sharpening techniques the pros really use (therea€™s an entire chapter just on this!) How to deal with common digital camera image problems, including removing noise and avoiding halos The most requested photographic special effects, and much more! The Book's Secret Weapon Although Elements 8 offers some digital photography features that Photoshop CS4 doesna€™t offer, there are plenty of features that Photoshop CS4 has that Elements 8 still doesna€™t have (things like paths, Channel Mixer, etc.). But in this book, youa€™ll learn some slick workarounds, cheats, and some fairly ingenious ways to replicate many of those Photoshop features from right within Elements. Plus, since this book is designed for photographers, it doesna€™t waste your time talking about how to frame a shot, setting your exposure, etc., and therea€™s no talk about which camera or printer to buy. Ita€™s all Elements, step-by-step, cover-to-cover, in the only book of its kind!You can try this quick trick for getting your flesh tones in line by removing the excess red. This one ...
