With so many computer books on the market it's not surprising that many duplicate between topics; but what IS surprising is to see two which stand relatively alone. Carla Rose, photographer and Photoshop author, tells how to scan photos to supplement scrapbook efforts in Scrapbooking With Adobe Photoshop Elements 3 (0789734117, $24.99). There are chapters on resizing and cropping photos, colorizing black and white photos, creating panoramic views or collages, and more. The focus on typical scrapbooking needs lends an element of specialized focus to this blend of digital and traditional scrapbooking techniques. Bill Jelen and Michael Alexander's Pivot Table Data Crunching (0789734354, $29.99) focuses entirely on using pivot tables: an advanced, powerful Excel feature rarely given its very own coverage. A pivot table will help summarize 50,000 rows of data in 30 seconds with a few clicks: Pivot Table Data Crunching covers all the options and basics, applying formulas and techniques to real-world business needs such as creating summary reports and filtering customers or topics by productivity. Both are excellent guides.
