Description

It has helped me dive into the deeper uses of this powerful software that i missed out on in PSPX3. Unfortunately, the "user guide" that comes with the software is very weak. I bought this book hoping to get a detail reference manual for the software. I have found that the book is a very solid beginners guide to the software package but lacks much of the depth I was looking for.

I have been using Paint Shop Pro for years, completly self taught. With this book I was finally able to figure out how to use the layers everyone is always talking about to do some effects that I have been wanting to do for some time. The program is easy to use for basic editing but to really get into the more advanced editing having the step by step directions enabled me to see how easy it really is to do things like creative recoloring of an image. I have only experimented with two new things so far but look forward to use all the tools available in Paint Shop Pro 4 now that I have directions. I have already recomended to a freind that they purchase this book when getting Paint Shop Pro as they will be able to jump into the editing that much faster.

Using digital imaging software requires special skill sets beyond word processing, spreadsheets, and other programs you might have encountered in daily life. There is no way around the steep learning curve you'll encounter. This book does a good job of walking you through the new skills you need. (Example: Learning to select part of an image, a most basic & necessary technique, takes practice & has some tricks to it.) The book has helpful pictures, thoughtful details, and the sequence of presentation is very good (teaches solid fundamentals & builds upon them). I keep it by my computer as a reference and use it frequently. True, it doesn't go into the most advanced techniques, but as a beginner to digital imaging, just learning the basic & intermediate skills is enough for now. An earlier reviewer said the book was too theoretical, but I need that theory to clearly understand the why of what I'm doing. Learning why opens whole vistas of understanding in a way that rote learning does not. Buy this book and expect to spend the next year or two learning a whole 'nother kind of computer skills. I'm enjoying the process.

This book is very good. Not great, but very good. It's well written, nicely printed, has great picture references and
illustrations, and covers nearly all of the topics. I say nearly all of the topics because for a book
covering all of PaintShop Pro X4's features and abilities, the author left out a glaring omission:
there's nothing in the book that even mentions HDR, High Dynamic Range.
This is one of the features that is new in this version of PSP, and it happens to be one of the hottest
topics in the photography world. It would have been be great to get some more in depth explanation on
this neat feature, and how best utilize PSP X4's HDR features. Too bad!

It's certainly helped me! I had PaintShop Pro X3(PSPX3), and tried to learn it without any manual. I felt like I wasn't getting the full use of the software program I had purchased. So when I bought Paintshop Pro X4 I decided to spend a little more and buy this manual. It has helped me dive into the deeper uses of this powerful software that i missed out on in PSPX3. I've learned many new ways to manipulate images, add effects, create panoramic pictures, 3-D pictures and especially working with layers. Recommended.

This book helped me actually use the software. Software makers have logically stopped including manuals with their products. Logically, because their manuals were never very good. You almost always had to buy a third-party manual anyway.

I only used X4 for a little while, but finally gave up and went back to PS. The learning curve to change was too great and too many third party products are designed for PS.

Corel's PaintShop Pro X4 "User Guide" presents two (2) innovative features that I wished to pursue; (i) "Erasing image areas"/P. 94 and "Cutting out image areas"/P 96, both of which appear to be incomplete with no direction as to layer applications. So far I have found no reference to these sections in "PICTURE OURSELF."

To the author's credit, she provides her email address for questions but I haven't found time to pursue.

I already had PS3 and knew I was just scratching the surface of what could be done with this soft ware. When I updated to PS4, I vowed to learn it form one end to the other. "Picture Yourself..." is just the ticket. I'm only about 2 chapters in but I can tell you this book is the way to go. Especially if you're new to all the technology now available. As I get more into this book I'll update this. I am very impressed, so far.
Corel PSP X4 is a surprisingly powerful photo editing package for the money. Unfortunately, the "user guide" that comes with the software is very weak. I bought this book hoping to get a detail reference manual for the software. I have found that the book is a very solid beginners guide to the software package but lacks much of the depth I was looking for. Many of the "advanced" fuctions are simply not addressed in the book. So, while it was not what I was looking for, I would most certainly recommend it to anyone who is starting out with PSP X4.
