This book (aggregation) (for Windows and Mac) breaks new (newborn) ground by doing something for digital photographers that’s never been done (finished) before—it cuts through (finished) the bull (Samson) and shows you exactly (just) “how to do it.” It’s not a bunch (clump) of theory; it doesn’t challenge (contest) you to come (become) up with your own (possess) settings or figure (amount) things out (discover) on your own. Instead, it does something that virtually no other (another) Elements book (aggregation) has ever done—it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use (ingest) them, and why. If you’re looking (hunting) for one (digit) of those “tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Maskfilter” books, this isn’t it. You can (crapper) grab any (some) other (another) Elements book (aggregation) on the shelf, because they all (every) do that. Instead, this book (aggregation) gives you the inside (exclusive) tips and tricks of the trade (change) for organizing, correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and presenting your photos like (same) a pro. You’ll be absolutely (dead) amazed at how easy (cushy) and effective (trenchant) these techniques are—once you know (undergo) the secrets.
The real (actual) secrets of how the pros retouch (enhance) portraits
How to color (colouration) correct any (some) photo without breaking a sweat (condensate) (you’ll be amazed (astonished) at how they do it!)
How to use (ingest) Camera Raw for processing not only (exclusive) RAW photos, but JPEGs and TIFFs, too! (And you’ll learn (see) why (ground) so many (some) pros like (same) it best— because it’s faster and easier)
The sharpening techniques the pros really (rattling) use (ingest) (there’s an entire (whole) chapter just (meet) on this!)
How to deal (care) with common (ordinary) digital camera image (ikon) problems, including removing noise (racket) and avoiding halos
The most requested photographic special (primary) effects, and much (such) more!
The Book's Secret Weapon
Although Elements 8 offers some (whatever) digital photography (picturing) features that Photoshop CS4 doesn’t offer, there are plenty (plentitude) of features that Photoshop CS4 has that Elements 8 still (ease) doesn’t have (hit) (things like (same) paths, Channel Mixer, etc.). But in this book, you’ll learn (see) some slick (disentangle) workarounds, cheats, and some (whatever) fairly ingenious (creative) ways to replicate (flex) many (some) of those Photoshop features from right (correct) within Elements. Plus, since this book (aggregation) is designed (fashioned) for photographers, it doesn’t waste (squander) your time (instance) talking about (most) how to frame (inclose) a shot, setting (environment) your exposure, etc., and there’s no talk (speech) about (most) which camera or printer (machine) to buy. It’s all (every) Elements, step-by-step, cover-to-cover, in the only (exclusive) book (aggregation) of its kind!Product Details
