Re: Recommended reading

I find Photshop Elements 12 good enough for my needs (its about 6 or 7 years old). It has layers and masking which is the main criteria for complicated techniques. I believe that later versions have better auto selection algorithms amongst other improvements. I also purchased "Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 Classroom in a Book (Classroom in a Book (Adobe)) Classroom in a Book (Adobe)" which to be honest was not as good as I wanted. Half the book seems devoted to managing and storing your photos and trying to find some of the editing techniques I wanted in the second half was like looking for a needle in a haystack - I had better luck with google and you tube.
