Format: Paperback
I bought this book after taking a Photoshop course in which I was lost alot of the time. After coming home from the class, I would use the book and its excellent step by step directions to help clarify what I had learned in my course. The book is very easy to understand and you can follow along step by step as Scott leads you through the steps in Photoshop. I would highly recommend this book and I am sure I will put it to good use for many years.

I always knew as an amateur that I had just scratched the surface of Photoshop. I use it for my jewelry business and my love of capturing my environment and life's moments.
I already learned so much from the book and I'm only half-way through it.
I had so many questions about all the various options and features, and sometime I would dare try something, it would result in turning the image in black areas! After reading some chapters, I now know it was just a very useful feature of Photoshop that I can use to my advantage, but since I did not know what I was doing, I stopped exploring.
But I never lost my curiosity or need to know how everything worked. I'd browsed through books in stores and came across this one, loved the humor and the step-by-step, I chose this book to order.
I'm having so much fun, plus, it changed how I take photos knowing what can be done and how! It is very liberating.
I'm not saying that you'll know every thing all at once, I'm saying you will know of the 'potentials', know where to look to learn more, and you won't be afraid to explore them with this book.
Have fun!

No author has made me advance more in my photographic technique and more specifically in post processing than Scott Kelby. He's the only author I truly understand ALL the time. He has an uncommon talent to teach what he knows in such a way that nothing is confusing. He doesn't beat around the bush either. He explains simple and complex techniques in very few steps compared to author authors who over complicate leaving the reader to scratch his head in confusion and frustration. I have learned more from Scott Kelby than by every other photography book author combined and that says a lot. I know I'm repeating myself but this guy is an awesome teacher. He makes learning fun ! Also, I find the pictures that he uses inspiring. He's a talented photographer as well.

Recently, I purchased several books on CS4, each dealing with a different aspect. This one provides excellent coverage of Photoshop's Camera oriented capabilities. It has a Lab rather than a Lecture approach, well worth the money

Format: Paperback
This is the second of Scott Kelby's books I have purchased.
While they are generally very straight forward and easy to read
I still occassionally noticed that some of the more basic information is still absent or difficult to find.
Something as simple as digitally processing a scanned film negative should be pretty straight forward and easy to find as many photographers still have a lot of good work on film to transfer.
Why does Kelby not address it?
The answer: Because CS4 doesn't address it either. What's up with that?

In spite of little things like this occassionally cropping up, Kelby's books do take a program as complex as Photoshop and make it readily accessible to the potographer who can't afford to devote weeks(if not months)to figuring out a highly complex yet extremely useful digital processing system. His are still the titles that jump out when I need to figure stuff out on the fly.
