Transform the Ordinary into the Extraordinary
With Photoshop Elements 3, Adobe has introduced substantial new features for digital photographers—including RAW support, organizing tools, Healing Brushes, and much more. As the software has become easier for digital photography enthusiasts to use and more compelling for serious digital photographers who seek the finest results, so has this acclaimed guide.
In Photoshop Elements 3 Solutions, award-winning photographer and author Mikkel Aaland has extensively revised his best-seller to include all of version 3's smart new features plus many fresh techniques and examples. Whether working with digital images is a hobby or part of your livelihood, Aaland's practical solutions, stunning color images, and reader-friendly approach will guide you to a higher level of expertise.
Inside, Aaland shows you the ins and outs of Photoshop Elements 3 for Windows and the Macintosh, including:

I've spent several months thoroughly updating my book to reflect the changes in Photoshop Elements 3. In addition to carefully re-working old procedures, I've added over 20 new step-by-step tutorials that take advantage of completely new features, filters, and tools such as the amazing Healing Brush. I've also written an entirely new chapter titled "Advanced Digital Photography Techniques" that delves deeply into the world of RAW data and the Photoshop Elements Camera Raw plug-in. The chapter includes a novel procedure using Photomerge to extend the exposure latitude of digital cameras along with a great technique for turning an ordinary photo into a dramatic drawing.
The book also includes extensive material on Photoshop Elements 3's new Organizer-a feature available only to Windows users. The Organizer is a morphed version of Photoshop Album, previously a stand-alone image management program. Integrating the two programs was a challenge, and Adobe pulled it off beautifully (Mac users get the benefit of an improved File Browser-and a lower retail price for the program.)
It's my hope that anyone using Photoshop Elements 3 who wishes to get more from his or her digital images will greatly benefit from my book. As always, I welcome reader feedback, so feel free to send me your questions and comments at the email address included in the book. I'll try and get right back to you. Enjoy!About the Author:
