The Photoshop Elements 14 Book for Digital Photographers
This book breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that’s never been done before–it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly “how to do it.” It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure things out on your own. Instead, it does something that virtually no other Elements book has ever done–it tells you flat-out which settings to use, when to use them, and why.
If you’re looking for one of those “tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Mask-filter” books, this isn’t it. You can grab any other Elements book on the shelf, because they all do that. Instead, this book gives you the inside tips and tricks of the trade for organizing, correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and printing your photos like a pro. You’ll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective these techniques are–once you know the secrets.

The Lightroom Mobile Book: How to extend the power of what you do in Lightroom to your mobile devices
Lightroom Mobile, which is kind of like an extension of the regular desktop version of Lightroom, allows users to use Lightroom on their iPads, iPhones, and Android devices. This is really handy because it lets you do a lot of the main things you use the desktop version for, but with Lightroom Mobile, you can easily do them on your mobile device. Plus, it’s “free,” and that’s a hard price to beat.
In The Lightroom Mobile Book , Scott brings the whole process together in a clear, concise, and visual way. There is no faster, more straight-to-the-point, or more fun way to learn Lightroom Mobile than with this groundbreaking book.

Seven Things You've Got To Know Right NOW
How Do I Do That in Photoshop?
Scott has done these down and dirty books for years -- where he simply instructs simple operations! Probably his best work becuase it's not wraped in so much of Scott's inflated ego.
Here’s how it works: When you need to know how to do a particular thing, you turn to the chapter where it would be found (Layers, Printing, Fixing Problems, Special Effects, etc.), find the thing you need to do (it’s easy, each page covers just one single topic), and Scott tells you exactly how to do it just like he was sitting there beside you, using the same casual style as if he were telling a friend. That way, you get back to editing your images fast.

How Do I Do That In Lightroom?
Here’s how it works: When you need to know how to do a particular thing, you turn to the chapter where it would be found (Print, Slideshow, Organizing, Importing, etc.), find the thing you need to do (it’s easy-each page covers just one single topic), and Scott tells you exactly how to do it just like he was sitting there beside you, using the same casual style as if he were telling a friend. That way, you get back to editing your images fast.
This isn’t a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed multi-step concepts. This is a book on which button to click, which setting to use, and exactly how and when to use it, so you’re never “stuck” in Lightroom again. This will be your “go to” book that sits within reach any time you’re working in Lightroom, and you are going to love having this type of help right at your fingertips.
