Total Training Presents: Adobe Photoshop Elements 3 Unleashed
[reviewed by Eric Martin]
It is remarkable how the overall costs of digital photography have gone down. Just a few years ago a digital camera that could match the quality of an image from a film camera would have cost over $5,000. Now you can buy a decent digital camera for under $300. And the software has become cheaper as well. Photoshop's hefty price has kept it out of reach of the amateur and hobbyist photographer. But now you can buy Adobe's Photoshop Elements 3, which has a feature set that almost equals the power of Photoshop, for less than $80.
Photoshop training courses have also seen a downward trend in pricing. Total Training's latest — Adobe Photoshop Elements 3 Unleashed — offers over 6 hours of lessons, includes project files and bonus stock photos, and costs less than $60. That's a very good deal considering the host is none other than Deke McClelland, who I consider to be one of the top Photoshop teachers in the world.

Photoshop Elements 3 For Beginners - DVD
[reviewed by Eric Martin]
Adobe is famous for giving their software lots of power under the hood, and with Photoshop Elements 3 they continue in this tradition. With version 3 Photoshop Elements now has many of the features that are found in the full version of Photoshop.
The problem with a program that's this powerful is that it comes with a much steeper learning curve. Luckily help is on the way from Photoshop Elements 3 For Beginners.

Photoshop Elements Great For Fixing Digital Images
[reviewed by Bob LeVitus]
Bob "Dr. Mac" LeVitus says "Photoshop Elements offers many of the same features as its more expensive counterpart, but is easier to use and sells for $500 less. If you're in the market for a graphics program for less than $100, nothing else comes close."
