Hidden Power Forums for Elements, All Versions
Forums allow readers and tool users to build a community to help one another, and a centralized vault of knowledge. Forums are ideal for users of any level to ask questions, get answers, share experiences, and quickly research questions that have already been asked (using forum Search features). Newer users gain access to a broad source of knowledge by interacting with more experienced users, and more experienced users can share their knowledge by helping newer users or explore more advanced topics with other users at their level. Forums serve as a place for yyou to interact and share information, and they are a very useful tool when the author can't get to your individual question immediately.
You can check out the forums, look for answers to your questions, or just browse the discussions without participating (sometimes known as 'lurking'). Lurking does not require creation of a login. If you want to participate in the discussions by asking questions or providing answers and expertise, you can create a login and join in when you are ready. It is recommended that you include valid email information at registration so that you can receive notification of development in discussions where you participate.
You can visit the Hidden Power forums at any time. The Hidden Power forums for the books are separated into areas based on the version of the book you are using, and these are hosted on the retouchpro.com website (thanks to Doug Nelson -- a very nice guy and a knowledgeable Photoshop user). Visit the forums using the following link, and then choose your version of Elements from there:

If you prefer you can post questions directly to me (Richard) via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) but I can't tell you how long the turn around time will be...I try to get to everything.
