Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
Here is the truth one of them doesn't want you to know
(and more, keep reading):
 

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

I just acquired Photoshop Elements 12, and really need a good reference book on how to use it. I am aware that there are many tutorials online, of which I will peruse. However, if I'm in the middle of trying to do some editing, I would much prefer going to a book. I find it difficult to watch a tutorial, then flip back and forth to my work.

I was just wondering if someone has any recommendations?

If you are looking for a reference book, I would recommend Barbara Brundage’s Photoshop Elements 12: The Missing Manual. This book tells you where to locate tools and features in this program and how to use them. It is a manual (as the title implies).

If you are looking for a book of tutorials, I would recommend Kelby and Kloskowski's The Photoshop Elements 12 Book for Digital Photographers. This book teaches you image-organizing and image-editing skills on a step-by-step basis.

These two books are completely different "entities" but they complement each other. Brundage’s book gives the basics you need to follow Kelby’s tutorials.

Yes. Both Brundage and Kelby have been writing these books for a long time.

http://www.amazon.com/Photoshop-Elements-11-Missing-Manual/dp/1449316131
http://www.amazon.com/Photoshop-Elements-Digital-Photographers-Voices/dp/0321884833

Amazon is currently out of The Missing Manual (paperback version) but you can find it at others sellers such as:

Thanks to everyone who sent their help. Ziza, I have decided to get both of the books you suggested. Picked up the one by Kelby & Kloskowski at B&N, and ordered the other, as it wasn't in stock at the store.
