PRESS RELEASE: Photoshop Elements 9: The Missing Manual -- New from O'Reilly
Sebastopol, CA—Elements 9 offers much of Photoshop's power without the huge price tag. It's an ideal tool for most image-editing buffs—including scrapbookers, photographers, and aspiring graphic artists. But Elements still doesn't come with a decent manual. Photoshop Elements 9: The Missing Manual (O'Reilly Media, $44.99 USD), will help you get the most out of the program, from the basics to advanced tips for both Windows and Mac.
"Elements 9 has some major new features, like Layer Masks, and the Organizer for Mac, that are very powerful but not easy to figure out, as well as some fun new features that you may well overlook if you don't know where to find them," says expert author Barbara Brundage. "I hope that the book will help my readers understand how to get the most from all of them."
