Idea Kit is a good name for this book which includes everything you need to complete 17 easy and fun projects. All you need to provide is your own photos. The author, Lisa Matthews, provides you easy to follow, step-by-step instructions and demonstrates several techniques for AdobeR PhotoshopR Elements. The accompanying CD has many project templates, textures and borders.

Matthews begins with a short introduction to Photoshop Elements' Photo Browser, Organizer and Creation Wizard. She then discusses common image corrections such as red eye, color casts, backlighting and cropping. Now that your photos are perfect, you are ready to start the projects.

In the first few projects, Matthews shows several ways to manipulate your photos by altering the background in a photo, changing a color photo to black and white, adding borders to your photos and using Photoshop Elements' painting tools to create some very interesting effects. She demonstrates how to use the software's Photomerge feature to create a panoramic image by combining several photos. Finally, she shows you how to create a collage by blending several images together.

In the next few projects, Matthews demonstrates how to print one photo in several sizes using Photoshop Elements' Picture Package and a Jewel Case/CD cover project using the Contact Sheet feature. Matthews also demonstrates Photoshop Elements built-in PDF slideshow and Web Photo Gallery features. Other projects use the many templates stored on the CD including a newsletter and phototransfer project. Finally, you use Photoshop Elements' Creation Wizard to make a postcard, poster, calendar and scrapbook pages.

Lisa Matthews is a commercial photographer and teaches photographic workshops. She also works for AdobeR Systems creating demonstration and instructional materials.
