Photoshop Book of the Week!

Yes, I know it’s been quite a while since I mentioned a new photoshop book but they seem so few and far between these days. Anyway this week I want tell you about the new Photoshop Elements 8 Book for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski. This newest edition is loaded with the latest techniques in this newest version of Adobe Photoshop Elements. Whether it’s working with Camera Raw, retouching techniques, sharpening, or just plain cool effects. You’ll find it here and then some! The other really cool about this book is that it shows you the workarounds for many techniques you may have seen done in Photoshop CS4. Also Elements itself includes a number of features not available in full version Photoshop.(There are a few of these I wish were in Photoshop.) It’s a reference manual you will want to keep close by. Find out more and order yours here.

Also check out the new iPod book by Scott Kelby. This new edition cover all the latest model iPods including the new video ipods. This book not only covers all iPods, it also includes chapter on using iTunes. While iTunes is a pretty intuitive application there are alway those little gems that you never knew were there or how they worked. This is loaded with those gems. Check it out here!!
