Title: Photoshop Elements 3 Solutions

Mikkel's Done it Again

Step-by-step techniques covered in this book explain the new Elements 3.0 features including the Healing Brush, RAW support and improved Red Eye Removal.

The technique for combining images using a Gradient Mask is one of the neatest tricks I've seen in a long time.

The book is chuck full of color images and all of the example files are on the CD.

The book also explains how to set up your preferences to take advantage of the software.

The book skips all of unnecessary simple stuff and gets right down to the meat of program including coverage of the Organizer (formally Album).

Don't listen to those guys, this is a very good text

I used this book in my AI class and found it to be a good text with excellent historical information and very approachable and understandable explanations of the material. I found it to be a competent treatment of all the major AI topics and I happily read the first 20 chapters. As it turned out, reading the book was a more rewarding experience than learning from the professor in lecture. :-)

Better than nothing..

There are no information on 3 exam objectives: Common architectures, Legacy connectivity, and Messaging. That is why I give the book 2 stars. This book is ONLY useful as a study guide, and as such it must be complete.
The objectives that are covered, are covered in a very short and consise way, which is fine for a study guide, but is not enough if you really want to learn the topic.
