I went out yesterday to buy a manual and found there's several authors including Scott Kelby. ( I've read one of his books before.) My question is should I go with the book written by him or does anyone recommend any of the others?

I had a Scott Kelby book on Elements 3 and found his way of teaching to be very understandable. There are probably others who do a fine job, but I think that I would probably gravitate back to Scott Kelby. Gale has a fine suggestion as well, you might consider checking into the internet for additional resources. Give this product some consideration. I have their product for Photo Shop CS2 (through the extreme generosity of a cherished friend :smile: ) and it is excellant.

I have Kelby's book and recommend it.
Thanks ya'll! I'm headed out today to buy Scott's book if they still have a copy! Yesterday they only had 2 left. I"ll check into that training thingie too if the book isn't enough. Thanks, again ya'll!

You may also want hidden elements
It offers ways to do things element alone can not do.
Can't think of the author at the moment..found it Richard Lynch...Not sure his 5 book is out yet. He would be the one you would want though.

Search amazon on books.
or even on the adobe site
Total training is also excellent

Just trying to save you money Dianne

Found out more on Lynch elements 5

I have Kelby's book and also highly recommend it! I refer to it every time I open PSE5. His way of teaching is very easy to understand and there is no useless "fluff" to sift through.
