Just got a new pc and added Photoshop Elements 10 as my photo editor. Had been using Picassa which is very limited in what it can do (fix). I find photoshop not very intuitive and am having some difficulty; this may be a longer learning curve than my camera.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a book for dummies?
Lately I've been trying out the latest version of Photoshop CS5 (1 month free trial). I beleive that this version is much more user friendly then the other versions if you work with Raw files. I plan on bying the Photoshop CS5 ($200.00), not that bad.
I normally work with Nikon NX2 and I also have Photoshop Element 6.0 and I find this last one to be very difficult to work with. I recommend that you try out the new Photoshop CS5 for 1 month and see how it works compared to Element 10.

I use Elements 8, and it has a Guided section that is very useful for doing most of the things that I require. There is also a Getting Started and tutorials in the program. The Community College use to give night classes. You may be able to find help books at Chapters.
Take it slowly and have fun with it. Always work with a copy of the image, in case you screw up the image.
