  • Just bought the book too

    I have just bought the book, The Hidden Powers of Photoshop Elements 2. I am new to digital photography and to Elements. So far the book has been very infomative. I do have a question on monitor calibration. My computer is an iMAC with a 17 " LCD monitor. What do I do with the step for settin the phosphor values. Do I skip it or is there another calibration process for LCD monitors. Thanks for you help.

    In the book I suggest that you call the manufacturer to get the phosphor information. The information is not often available for CRTs let alone LCDs, though it is important to accurate calibration. I have tried before in a test, picking a manufacturer at random and requesting information on a particular LCD, and when i've asked to speak with an engineer, I have been able to get values. I suggest calling the manufacturer's 800 number and trying the same thing.

    Hope that helps.

      Should I install the disk now or is it better to install bit by bit as the book progresses?...

      Does the HPE 4 book will apply to Elements 5.0?
      by craigpc
      I've been using Elements 5.0 for a while now and having discovered this forum I now read that Richard's HPE 5.0 book isn't likely to be published, although is it safe to assume that the 5.0 tools will be released?

      My question is how much of the HPE 4 book would be applicable to Elements...

      Beginners book for Photoshop Elements 2
      by ljsegil
      I would appreciate any advice on a beginners book for PSE2. I am new to digital photography and editing. I have tried and been disappointed by "PSE2 for Dummies." I have found it to be a catalogue of commands with little rational for their use.
      Any and all input will be appreciated....
