The Photoshop Elements 8 Book for Digital Photographers

Dear Reader:

Welcome to the photo, online chapter, and video download page, where you can download some of the same photos we used in the book to follow right along with the techniques.

Before we get to what to do with these photos, we want to give credit (read as: big love) to the wonderful people at iStockphoto. They were kind enough to let us use their amazing stock imagery in the book, but what you’re seeing here is just a tiny speck of the thousands of amazing stock photos they offer. So, please drop by their website at http://www.istockphoto.com and see for yourself why iStockphoto is making such an impact on the stock photography market.

There are also some shots here that aren’t from iStockphoto, like the photos taken by us, our friends, etc., and those are downloadable, too. Of course, the whole idea behind this book is that you use these techniques on your own photos, but until you do, you can practice on these. Some images are not available for download due to permissions issues. Also, Chapters 1, 1b, and 12 are about using the Elements Organizer or Adobe Bridge, and printing, so it doesn’t matter one little bit which photos you use. You don’t need to download any photos – just use any ones you have handy.

Well, that’s pretty much it. We hope you enjoy following along with these images, and thanks so much for buying the book, and giving us the opportunity to show you some of the really cool things about Photoshop Elements 8.

Just a quick reminder: These downloadable, low-resolution photos, from iStockphoto and the other photographers who have made their photos available to you here, are licensed for your personal use only in practicing the techniques shown in the book. They are not licensed for use in any other manner, including commercial projects, websites, or any other use. Thanks for honoring the copyrights of these talented photographers.
