What is this book about?

Starting with the basics, this book gets you up and running in Photoshop quicker than you thought possible. "Chapter Zero" shows you around the program so you can skip ahead and produce the results you really want, fast.

Zero to Hero doesn't stop there. We also devote space to four Photoshop masters who share their skills and creativity. Within these pages, you’ll find easy-to-follow, fully illustrated solutions to all the common, and not-so-common, problems that photographs present.

In the 96-page, full-color section — at the back of the book — the heroes reveal their projects in depth, sharing tips and tricks on the whole creative cycle, from shooting your photos right through the finished article. Packed with added insight, and backed up by free technical support, this book will give you the knowledge, and the inspiration, to be a Photoshop Elements 2 hero.
