Photoshop Elements Book Recommendation

Digital and Hybrid Scrapbooking and Card-Making with Photoshop Elements by Patty DebowskiI can’t wait to tell you about this great resource for Photoshop Elements users: Digital and Hybrid Scrapbooking and Card-Making with Photoshop Elements by Patty Debowski!!! If I had this book when I started digi scraping my life would have been soooo much easier and I could have spent way more time scrapbooking and less time trying to figure out what I was doing. Even though I am no longer using Photoshop Elements (I won a free copy of Photoshop CS3 Extended), I’m so glad Patty sent me this book to review, because I can now recommend it to all my friends :).   Nobody should have to spend countless hours teaching themselves the hard way, like I did, when there is such a handy reference book available! I think it is well worth the $39.99 price tag.

What I like about this book: 
This is a wonderful book for Photoshop Elements users who are learning digital scrapbooking – it answers EVERY question I’ve ever heard from beginners, and offers plenty of great tips for advanced users as well! Even though this is a huge (384 page) reference book, it is easy to read and I read it from cover to cover. It’s the kind of book that’s great to keep on your computer desk so you can grab it and quickly look up a tip or technique (I’m sure you’ll find what you need in the 20 page index). I LOVE that there are lots of detailed instructions with screenshots and helpful photos, and I especially love the big chart of keyboard shortcuts!

For More Information: 
If you want to read more about the book, check out this press-release and this book review, and you can also see the book’s table of contents (and much more) at

I know Patty’s book is going to be treasured by so many Photoshop Elements users, now if only I had a book like this for Photoshop CS3…

    My dh just bought this book and I’m so glad to hear a recommendation. I just got PSE 6 after using PSP for years. Maybe I have a shot at learning this after all. Thank you.
