Jule Kijek (Redford, MI) says:
      This is a great book to fix everyday problems with pictures old and new. This book will not appeal to the Advanced amatuer or pro photographer as it is a BASIC fix book. No special effects. Just good advice on how to fix red eye, glare from glasses and poor lighting and color, among other things. I was not very familiar with photoshop and I was able to apply most of the techniques right away with good results. A great intro to the PS-E 2.0!


This is one in a trilogy of three attractive, informative books that form an excellent basis for a small library on digital photography. In recent years, digital photography has had a tremendous influence, and as equipment costs -- notably for cameras -- continue to drop, digital imagery will soon completely revolutionize photography. Each of these books will be very helpful for professional and amateur photographers making the transition to digital photography.
