I realize that many of you are in to PS and a couple of other brands, but does anyone here have recom for basic PS Elements, preferably version 3 book? I had PSE2 which I hadn't used much and upgraded to PSE3. The online tutorial help they provide isn't user friendly as far as laying out a standard workflow or which steps come first when fixing a photo. I have Scott Kelbies new book on PSE3 but it assumes you know the basics and doesn't discuss that much.

I need help on dust removal, sharpening, and the workflow itself. I have used a few tools and have used the quick fixes several times and the levels tool once in a while. But the rest is all in Greek. I have tons of things to do, very little time and things I need to get going. Thanks in advance.

"The Photoshop Elements 3 Book for digital photographers" by Scott kelby. But you may want to take a look at it - it is organized from a "here's how to accomplish this editing task in Elements 3" perspective (e.g. replacing grey sky with blue, glamour shot softening,color correction, etc)and not an in depth walk-thru of every function in the tool and how it works and hot to use it type of format. I found it very useful.

The "50 Fast Digital Photo Techniques with Photoshop© Elements 3" (say that five times real fast) byt Gregory Georges is quite good as well. It includes the previous version of the book (for Elements 2) on cd.
