From the creative team behind the best-selling Photoshop Wow! Book comes the indispensable companion to Adobe Photoshop Elements, the low-cost, easy-to-use alternative to Photoshop. In Adobe Photoshop Elements One-Click Wow!, authors Jack Davis and Linnea Dayton greatly extend the power of this digital imaging software by including over 300 stunning Layer Styles on the accompanying CD-ROM--Layer Styles that you couldn't create using Photoshop Elements alone. Whether you're a photographer, business user, or hobbyist, you can use these One-Click Wow! effects to transform your photos, type, or graphics from ho-hum to Wow! with a single click.

Adobe Photoshop Elements One-Click Wow! contains a quick start guide for loading and applying the One-Click Wow! Layer Styles; tutorials on how to scale, customize, and copy them; and easy instructions for saving, sizing, and printing your files. It also includes a printed catalog of all the mouth-watering effects on the CD-ROM, along with samples to help you pick the Layer Styles you want to apply.

Take all your projects to the next level--from subtle tints to exquisitely crafted dimensional makeovers--instantly with Adobe Photoshop Elements One-Click Wow!

When I got this book with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, I found three surprises:
-- The book refers to Photoshop Elements 1.0, while the current version being sold is 2.0;
-- The explanatory text is for, and all the screenshots are from, the Apple Macintosh;
-- The book is a very slender 58 pages ... and the text really ends on page 19!
That said, there's a lot here to like. Adobe Photoshop Elements One Click Wow! (do I really have to write the whole title again?) is not a manual; Adobe Photoshop Elements comes with a very nice printed manual that's over 250 pages long. Instead, it's a collection of slick styles you can apply to your images and layers to create some very cool effects. These layer styles are on the enclosed CD-ROM, and *that* is what you're spending your money on.
Dispensing with the tutorials in about 20 clear, information packed pages, the rest of the book is your 'catalog' of the styles and effects that One-Click Wow! includes. As a sample, here is the list from the table of contents, under "Graphic & Type Effects:"
Chromes
Metals
Glass, Ice & Crystal
Gems & Smooth Stones
Plastics
Polished & Textured Woods
Rock, Brick & Other Textures
Weaves & Patterns
Strokes, Fills & Shadows
Glows, Neon & Halos
In short, the software is a huge toolkit of great-looking textures, gradients, effects and styles to improve the look of your photographs or graphic art from within Adobe Photoshop Elements.
A cynic might suggest that One-Click Wow! is really software being sold as a book, and as so, perhaps not worth the price-tag. However, the book is nicely printed on heavy-stock paper, the tutorial chapters are good, and 38 pages of 'catalog' really are more useful than the tiny thumbnails that show up in Photoshop Element menus.
In summary, I recommend this book and it's disc to anyone wishing to learn more about, and get more out of, Adobe Photoshop Elements.

small book but very interesting and easy to use.

The book isn't worth much, but the plugins are great. The one click stuff is a great time saver for me, and it really does make things look more snappy without too much hassle. Well worth it for the CD full of plugins!

This book and CD come with a library packed with presets for Adobe Photoshop Elements 2 and 3. You will find over 500 layer styles and effects, dozens of textures and shapes, lots of media brushes and 40+ gradients. And they are all professional quality. The presets are divided into three major categories; styles for photos, styles for type and graphics, and web button styles. There are also general presets such as repeatable textures and patterns, shadows and embossing, ghost (semi-transparent) backgrounds and overlays.

The book that comes with the CD teaches you how to use the presets and also sparks your creativity with a full color gallery of examples. The author, Jack Davis, starts with a One-Click WOW Quick Start tutorial that helps you to install and explore the goodies on the CD. His next few sections introduce you to Photoshop Elements layer styles and explain how to scale, copy, combine and further customize the presets. Lastly, Davis explains how to save your creations and output them in various formats.

Jack Davis is a designer and photographer and specializes in digital imaging and design. He is one of the Photoshop Dream Team instructors and teaches on the WOW Seminar Tour.

When Adobe introduced Photoshop Elements it had a low-end program for newcomers to digital photography. It based the cut-down Elements program on its expensive and complex main Photoshop program. However, when you buy Elements you are actually installing quite a lot of the main program (even though no menu commands exist to use new features), and people have been finding ways to exploit the advanced features of Photoshop that Adobe thought would be too complex for Elements users.

Several web sites and two books supply software to advance the capabilities of Elements. One book lets you use some of the professional-level features of the main program, and the other provides some wild effects. That book is the One-Click Wow book I'm reviewing here (the other one is Richard Lynch's The Hidden Powers of Photoshop Elements).

Years ago I wrote a book on Photoshop version 3, and even without enhancements Photoshop Elements 3 is close to being equal to it. The effects in One-Click Wow can be done in several steps in the Main Photoshop program, and in fact that's how they're produced. Unfortunately the effects are of the "take it or leave it" variety - there's no way of altering them - but luckily Jack Davis has produced effects that will appeal to most people.

Because this is a "cheat" and not an officialy approved set of program extensions, you have to manually copy the extensions from the CD to your hard drive. If Elements is running you need to reboot, and then you'll find them listed in the menus for Layer Effects and other places.

One set of extensions work on photographs, and as well as those allowing you to change the appearance of the whole photograph there are other effects that let you add frames or edges. There's a whole series of effects that allows you to change a photograph so that it looks like a painting.

The major set of effects works on graphics and type. They'll change your designs and words to look like chrome or many kinds of natural materials, as well as plenty that look like neon signs. In fact there are several hundred effects, as well as extra brushes and patterns.

It's easiest to see this product not so much as a book, but more like a software add-on with an instruction manual that gives examples of almost every effect - in full color. There's even a multi-page tutorial in using the effects which should explain all you need to know about how to use them.

Davis has been producing the Photoshop Wow books of effects since the beginning of the main program, so the effects here will make a major difference to your pictures. What I've also noticed is the way Davis crops his pictures which is a tutorial in itself - he crops very tightly and you can see the improvement.

So if you can see a copy of this book before you buy it, take a look because what you see is what you're going to get. For most people it's a no-brainer buy, especially since even if you had the main Photoshop program you'd have to do numerous activities on your pictures to equal what you get here.

For the price, it's an amazing bargain for the extra powers you get. I have both this and The Hidden Power of Photoshop Elements, and the two of them make Elements a much more powerful and worthwhile program.
