This is a great book to fix everyday problems with pictures old and new. This book will not appeal to the Advanced amatuer or pro photographer as it is a BASIC fix book. No special effects. Just good advice on how to fix red eye, glare from glasses and poor lighting and color, among other things. I was not very familiar with photoshop and I was able to apply most of the techniques right away with good results. A great intro to the PS-E 2.0!
