Scott and I would like to acknowledge several people, without whom this book would not be as good, and may very well have not made it to press. First of all, we thank Betsy Brown, who stood by us when it seemed that the world itself was coming down, giving us not only understanding but the time we needed to produce our best effort. Next, we would like to thank Alice Martina Smith, who is not only a good friend but also a great editor, and whose heart and soul are in this book with ours. We'd also like to thank Doug Nelson, who provided a thorough technical edit, with comments that were both insightful and accurate. Our thanks go also to the staff of Adobe, with whom we worked during the formation of this book and of Photoshop Elements 3.0, so that both our teams could build a better product.
