September/October issue update

By Rick LePage  ·  August 27th, 2012

The September/October 2012 issue of Photoshop Elements Techniques has left the printer and should be winging its way around the US and far-flung reaches of the globe. Subscribers in the US should receive their issues by September 6, and in Canada by September 14. Worldwide mailing should completed by September 22.

The PDF of the issue for all print and digital subscribers will be available for download from our Magazine page on Saturday, September 1.

Once you receive your issue, don’t forget to check out our Extras/Downloads page to find the sample files for five of the tutorials in the magazine. You can also find all of the website links mentioned in the issue from our September/October Linked List page.

If you haven’t received your issue (or any issue, for that matter) by its estimated mailing deadline for your area, drop us a note via our Contact Us page. Include your name, address, and which issue you’re missing, and we’ll put a replacement copy in the mail right away.

    Wish you all had something similar to RB Developer mag, where they offer a hardbound book with each year of past issues printed in 1 book. Usually a 1 year book would be around 400 pages and it sells to subscribers for around $39.99… I know they are available free in pdf format but i just subscribed in the last couple of weeks and i just absolutely hate reading pdf magazines (as compared to printed) so i just thought i would chime in with my 2 cents. Maybe there are others like me that would enjoy the older issues in printed format as well ??? anybody ??????

    Nice idea Kevin, of course if you just print the PDF’s you can make your own book for a lot less than $40.00 and you will not have to wait until they decide to do it for you. I don’t like PDF reading either and have printed many of the previous issues and put them in a ring binder just as the real issues are punched for a ring binder. Hope the suggestion help!
    To all the PSE crowd, Thanks for the help throughout the past two year I enjoyed all that you taught and everyone’s input. I will be leaving after this month as my subscription is up and I have graduated to CS6 and NAPP. See you in the internet jungle!!

    Liz’s article on scanning and organizing old photos was great. It takes away that feeling of being overwhelmed with old pictures and slides that have accumulated in every nook and cranny as well as the boxes of pictures from our families.

    I may even have the courage to consider putting them all into order.

    Thanks Liz

        Thank you Rick. I kept looking for the link below the line that says: Subscribers can also download a PDF of the issue by clicking on the link below [available shortly]. And since it still said available shortly, I didn’t scroll down and find it….Might be good to remove those two words for others like me who are not familiar with the format….:) Thank you though!

    September/October Magazine was great full of lots of information.
    Liz’s article on scanning old family photos was very helpful. But can you tell
    me what scanner to purchase that will scan old negatives from the 1940-1960″s
    They are about 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches? They are a little large for the scanners I have found
    that scan the smaller negatives.
    Thanks for any help!

      Glenda,

      I use the Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanner, which we’ve used to scan our old medium-format negatives (and some new ones too). It does a great job.

      It looks like the V600 Photo, which is quite a bit less-expensive, also comes with medium-format negative holders. I can’t speak to how well it does, though.

      Hope this helps.

      Rick

    I was so so excited to get this issue in the post here in OZ only to open it up and see you only printed a couple of the portrait runners up. :( I was so happy i made the cut with my photo of Charlotte but it wasn’t in it. Oh well i guess it means i will try harder next time to get into the magazine. Silly me for thinking you printed all the winners of the months competition.

    I am so glad that the digital subscribtion thingy is now working, it feels I have been waiting forever – just joking.

    @ Kevin

    I have found that I am usually only interested in a few articles/tutorials in each issue. These I print off as hard copy, since I don’t like too much screen reading either, and it saves heaps of trees. The video tutorials I am interested in, which Liz sends on a regular basis, I save to my hard drive.

    With reference to page 21 of the November/December edition. I would like to upgrade to Photoshop Elements 11 from Elements 8. The section in the lower right hand corner of the page says this option is available for $80 but when I go to the suggested website the price is about $45 more expensive. Is this because I live in Australia?
