Quick Tip:
Learning Photoshop Elements the Fun Way

You can think of Photoshop Elements as "Photoshop Lite." It'll do almost all the image manipulation you'll need to do as a DM graphic designer but for a much smaller outlay of your money. Here are two resources for learning how to use Photoshop Elements by doing fun projects:

  • 25 Things to Make and Do in Adobe Photoshop Elements 4, by Lisa Matthews. List price: $24.99 at www.peachpit.com. Buy new at Amazon.com for $16.49.
  • Adobe Photoshop Elements Crafts Book, by Elizabeth Bulger. List price: $21.99 at www.peachpit.com. Buy new at Amazon.com for $14.95.

Like the "Visual Quickstart Guide Series" we've recommended before, these two books are not massive, technical tomes written in computer-lingo. They are concise and easy to understand, leading you through practical projects with excellent photos and diagrams.
