Photoshop Elements is the cut-down, low-price version of Adobe’s powerful Photoshop software, and like Photoshop, it’s not just intended for tweaking and retouching those less than perfect photographs—it has huge creative potential too.
How to Cheat in Photoshop Elements 8 is the Elements equivalent to Steve Caplin's How to Cheat in Photoshop—a fun, quirky and inspiring guide, packed with tips, tricks and effects that reveal the power of Elements for design-oriented image manipulation and photomontage. With more than 80 step-by-step projects on page spreads showing the before and after and all stages in between, this is a practical guide to stir the imagination.
QuickTime movie tutorials and images for all projects in the book are included on the accompanying CD-ROM, with additional support and an active reader forum on the website for the book, howtocheatinphotoshopelements.com.
