LEARN HOW THE PROS DO IT. Each year we train thousands of digital photographers and, almost without exception, they have the same questions and face the same problems--that's exactly what we cover in this book.You'll learn: * The real secrets of how the pros retouch portraits * How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat (you'll be amazed at how the pros do it!)
* How to use Camera Raw for processing not only RAW photos, but JPEGs and TIFFs, too! (And you'll learn why so many pros like it best--because it's faster and easier) * The sharpening techniques the pros really use (there's an entire chapter just on this!) * How to deal with common digital camera image problems, including removing noise and avoiding halos * The most requested photographic special effects, and much more! THE BOOK'S SECRET WEAPON Although Elements 10 offers some digital photography features that Photoshop CS5 doesn't offer, there are plenty of features that Photoshop CS5 has that Elements 10 still doesn't have (things like paths, Channel Mixer, etc.). But in this book, you'll learn some slick workarounds, cheats, and some fairly ingenious ways to replicate many of those Photoshop features from right within Elements. Plus, since this book is designed for photographers, it doesn't waste your time talking about how to frame a shot, set your exposure, etc., and there's no talk about which camera or printer to buy.It's all Elements, step by step, cover to cover, in the only book of its kind, and you're gonna love it!
