Easy to understand book on Layers and Masks. Great for those new at digital editing.

In addition to my nature photography classes at Norfolk Botanical Gardens, http://www.norfolkbotanicalgarden.org/programs-events/calendar, programs at Johns Hopkins University http://odyssey.jhu.edu/, and weekend photo workshops at Chincoteague NWR Virginia and in Southern West Virginia, www.ospreyphoto.com, I have been teaching introductory digital editing classes based on Adobe Photoshop Elements 10. I am always searching for good books to recommend to students.  While preparing for an upcoming class, I found an excellent book explaining the use of layers and masks in a way that beginners might be able to understand. The text and screen captures are useful and easy to follow.  For those interested, I recommend the following book which can be purchased as a soft back or Kindle version from www.amazon.com. “Layers: The Complete Guide to Photoshop’s Most Powerful Feature (2nd Edition)”
