First body paragraph ("There are two special settings...")

Please delete this paragraph: There are two special settings at the bottom of the Auto Smart Tone window: a checkbox labeled “Learn from this Correction,” which tells Elements to remember what settings you liked for this image and to use that as a basis for adjusting future photos, and an eye icon, which you can click to toggle the auto-toning preview off and on to get before and after views. ---------------------------------- And replace it with this: Click the four-lined square at the bottom of the window to see a pop-out menu with two options: “Learn from this Correction,” which tells Elements to remember what settings you liked for this image and to use them as a basis for future adjustments, and “Show Corner Thumbnails,” which toggles the corner thumbnails on and off. ---------------------------------- Adobe made this change after the book's files went to the printer.

"Render" bullet point on lower half of page

Adobe removed the Lighting Effects filter from Photoshop Elements 12, so please delete these two sentences: "The Lighting Effects filter, a powerful but confusing filter that’s like a whole program in itself, helps you change the way lighting appears in your image. For a full rundown on what this filter does and how to use it, check out this book’s Missing CD page at www.missingmanuals.com.cds."

In the first and second printings of this book, some of the page numbers listed in the index were incorrect. (To find out which printing you have, take a look at the copyright page near the front of the book, which includes a Revision History list. If you see only the 2013-09-03 First Release and/or the 2013-10-11 Second Release listed there, then your book contains these errors. Subsequent printings contain the corrected index.) You can download the corrected index here: http://examples.oreilly.com/0636920027454/PE12MM_index.pdf
