Fred Sez:
      Rhoda's new book "Fun with PS Elements: Foto-Fakery for Everyone" covers the quintessential 'tricks' of image editing from switching faces on bodies to digital elastic surgery, to special effects makeup -- but goes much further with more exuberant fun than any other digital imaging book. A treasure at just sixteen bucks!"
