Download Free Photoshop/Premiere Elements 11 eBooks (185 Pages)
[UPDATE (Sept. 2013) – Elements 12 is here! These books still work for the new version.]
Just out and completely free! Download the new Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 Guide and Premiere Elements 11 Guide ebooks, together containing 22 chapters and 185 pages of visual tutorials and feature how-to’s, and both 100% gratis for personal use…
These e-books are great overviews and introductions to the Elements 11 tools, and cover a good deal of helpful material for getting started with the products or picking up more skills and techniques if you’re already familiar. Each volume is a collection of technical lessons for learning how to best use the popular programs.
The downloads are 7.5 MB (PSE) and 5.5 MB (PRE) in size, in PDF format (get the free and better Adobe Reader XI, if you haven’t done so yet). All you need to do to activate the ebook downloads is sign in with your Adobe ID (which is easy to create if you haven’t already got one).
If you don’t yet own Elements 11, just download the fully-working trial from Adobe to run it for free for 30 days. Some of the training in the book will be relevant for older versions of Elements as well, although if you need them we’ve also got older ebooks for Elements 9/10.
See our Elements 11 Launch Review for more details on the new products and included features. If you currently have an older version of the software, check out this chart with the comparison of differences between Photoshop Elements 11 vs. 10 vs. 9 vs. 8 vs. 7.
Or, if you prefer to learn by video training instead, don’t miss these three hours of free video tutorials for Photoshop Elements 11, or alternatively these free tuts for Photoshop Elements 10 & 9. There’s also two hours of free how-to videos for Premiere Elements 11.
