  104. Would love to win Vincent’s book or better still the signed photograph!

  105. I purchased The Digital Photography Book Volume 1 by Scott Kelby and am using Photoshop Elements 9. On page 19 of this book, the instructions for follow-up after applying “Unsharp Mask”advise going to the Edit menu to choose Fade Unsharp Mask and change the pop-up menu from Normal to Luminosity. I am unable to find this option. This instruction appears to be an error for my version of Photoshop Elements. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
