About Kate Binder

Kate Binderhas mastered Photoshop and several other graphics programs over the past 20 years and is starting to feel quite old. She still enjoys tinkering with photos and does so at every opportunity. (It's much more entertaining than doing actual work.) When she can be found working, Kate is most likely to be doing magazine or book production, creating ebooks for major publishers, or writing books like this one. Books Kate has written or cowritten include Sams Teach Yourself Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 in 24 Hours(Sams, 2008), The iMac Portable Genius(Wiley, 2008), Easy Mac OS X Leopard(Que, 2007), Sams Teach Yourself Adobe Photoshop CS4 in 24 Hours(Sams, 2008), Easy Adobe Photoshop Elements 4(Que, 2005). Kate lives in an old house in New Hampshire with her husband, journalist Don Fluckinger, and assorted children, greyhounds, cats, and (she's pretty sure) a mouse under the dryer. Kate's Website is http://www.prospecthillpub.com.
