Couldn't ignore technical problems
After reading the first 20-30 pages of this book, I found myself
so distracted by all of the typos and technical errors that I
couldn't continue with it. It seems to me that an expert on
digital photography should be able to keep mega_pixels_ and
mega_bytes_ straight. I got tired of mentions of 5MB cameras and
such. There are numerous other examples, but I already returned
the book and can't cite them all from memory.
If you can overlook this, then I have a feeling the other reviews
that say this is good for beginners are on the mark.

...I've been an amateur photographer for 15 years, and my husband bought me a Canon Powershot A40 and this book for my birthday. I'm no stranger to photography, but I'm amazed at the effects I've already been able to achieve with Adobe Elements and the use of this book. I particularly appreciated the chapter on special effects and the one on cataloging and archiving images.

Wish I'd Read These Reviews...
I wish I'd read the reviews before I bought the book. I'd echo the sentiment that I was too advanced for the book. The CD wasn't anything I could use either. It was good in spots, but what I learned was really on a few pages. If you just bought or thinking of buying, your first digital camera and goodies, then buy this book.
If you've been shooting for a while and using Photoshop, you'll learn a little, but wish you'd bought something else--like a lens or something, or a different book.
