Brundage presents a manual for a streamline version of the Photoshop graphics software that she says is sufficient for nearly everyone not working with graphics professionally, is much easier to learn, and is much cheaper. She covers introductory material, elemental Elements, retouching, artistic Elements, sharing images, and additional Elements. Among her topics are rotating and resizing photos, Elements for digital photographers, removing and adding color, texts in Elements, creating projects, email and the Web, and creating slideshows. She covers both Windows and Mac versions of the software. Annotation ©2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
