About This Book

Elements is such a cool program and so much fun to use, but figuring out how to make it do what you want is another matter. Amazingly, there’s not even a complete manual included with Elements 3. All you get is the brief “Getting Started” guide. The Elements Help files are very good, but of course you need to know what you’re looking for to use them to your best advantage.

You’ll find a slew of Elements titles at your local bookstore, but most of them assume that you know quite a bit about the basics of photography and/or digital imaging. It’s much easier to find good intermediate books about Elements than books designed to get you going with the program.

Which is where the Missing Manual comes in. This book is intended to make learning Elements easier by avoiding technical jargon as much as possible, and explaining why and when you’ll want to use (or avoid) certain features in the program. That approach is as useful to people who are advanced photographers as it is to those who are just getting started with their first digital camera.
