New from O’Reilly: Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac, The Missing Manual by Barbara Brundage

The Missing Manual by Barbara Brundage

Best-selling author Barbara Brundage has a new book, Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac: The Missing Manual, written mainly for Mac users who want to take advantage of the editing software’s capabilities for enhancing photographs, making fancy photo collages, scrapbooking and creating Web galleries.

In her book, Barbara provides clear instructions for using all the new features including Guided Edit for performing basic editing tasks, the improved Photomerge feature, the handy Quick Selection Tool, and much more. She covers not only how the tools and commands work, but also when to use them.

As a Mac user herself, Barbara says, “it was a real treat to write a Mac book for a change. It’s been a long time since Adobe released a Mac version of Elements. That means there are lots of new features in Elements 6, so even if you’re pretty handy with the older versions of Elements for Mac, you’re going to have some new stuff to learn.”

With Photoshop Elements 6: The Missing Manual for the Mac, readers will learn how to:

• Import, organize, and fix photos quickly and easily.
• Repair and restore old and damaged photos, and retouch any image.
• Jazz up their pictures with dozens of filters, frames, and special effects.
• Use the tools the pros use.
• Create collages and photo layout pages for greeting cards and other projects.
• Get downloadable practice images and try new tricks right away.

The new book is available from O’Reilly for $44.95.
