Reviews - What do customers think about Digital Photo Editing for Seniors: Learn How to Edit Your Digital Photos with Arcsoft PhotoStudio (Computer Books for Seniors series)?

Digital Photo Editing for SENIORS  Mar 2, 2008
Having just started into Digital Photograhy I find this text a welcome addition to my library. This book allows you to customize your photo's to suit your taste. I am going to get a lot of use out of this excellent
Great Great program for photo editing  Jul 14, 2007
Did I mention that it is great? This is the same program that came with a digital camera I bought a few years ago, but I changed computers and couldn't find it again until now. (I found it by accident in the Computer Books for Seniors series.)

Arcsoft PhotoStudio is user friendly and does everything that I need it to do. The price is awesome AND it comes with an instruction book which I did not have before (yet I figured it out!!!!.) I recommend this program to anyone and everyone.
Great book  Dec 18, 2006
This is a great book! I teach PC/Digital Camera classes in an adult ed setting and see this as a breakthrough volume. I'm working at convincing management to incorporate this as a required text/course.

A key is that it INCLUDES a powerful editing software program. In classes, we use the SW that is resident on the lab PC's, so students are sent home to practice with either an unrelated product, or they are off to the store to face the dozens of choices for purchase at up to $100.

Too bad the cover and title cater to seniors. This book is valuable for any one interested in the subject of digital imagery, not just Geezers. Hopefully however, that cover will interest more seniors who should buy this book and plod, yes plod, through it because learning something new ain't always easy, at any age.

This book and the included Arcsoft program will guide users through very basic and simple editing functions like cropping and brightening their treasured images--alone worth the purchase price. But, what's surprising to me is the fact that some of the most advanced aspects of editing are covered, like cloning and the use of layers which are true pro-level features.

Purchasing a "latest" comparable entry level program like "Photoshop Elements", or "Paint Shop Pro" at around $90, plus an explanatory step-by-step book at about $30, would be overkill when this all-in-one solution is available for under $20!

Perseverance is required for anyone learning something new and potentially complex, but this book should be considered by anyone of any age group. Another volume I recommend, if one already has a complicated program they're stumped by is: "Digital Photography, The Missing Manual". manual"

Unable to Review  Aug 12, 2006
I returned the above noted book to your Mississigua, Ontario Canada address because the Arcsoft PhotoStudio software was missing from the book.I requested a new copy with the software enclosed but as of today I have not received any news from this site, in Mississauga as to when I can expect my new book.
Should I request a refund ? What do you suggest because I have really enjoyed other computer books for seniors in the same series.At this point I am disappointed that I have not received my correct order.Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
Connie Moore
Poor title perhaps; good content  Oct 15, 2005
The previous reviewer quibbles with the title but neglects to address the content. I find this book extraordinarily useful in two respects: it includes the software that it is teaching, and the lessons are carefully designed to lead the ignorant learner through unfamiliar processes. Terms are defined, and ample opportunity is given for practice, to achieve good results.
A prime volume for someone who wants to know something about digital photo editing. NOT a book or application that someone who either already has another, more powerful application, or for those who have no patience with reading directions.
