"A competent guide to Photoshop's cheaper rival." - British Journal of Photography
"When you pick up any book from Focal Press, you know two things. One: it is extremely useful for photographers, and Two: it is qualitative, thorough information for those wanting in depth knowledge. There are more books about PSP, so why bother? In short: Paint Shop Pro 8, the guide to creating professional images is by far the clearest guide for PSP. It's a serious book for people wanting to know more. Of course every function of the program is discussed in detail. But it is the examples that make this manual the best. It is strongly visual, with lots of examples and graphics."
Online bookseller readers' reviews of current edition:
"As soon as I opened this book I knew I would like it. It's in COLOR, what a novel idea, to make a photo book in color!!!!
:-). It deals with digital photos and scans and web only, none of that other stuff you can do like make graphics and things. You can also download the picture from the web site to follow along. For working with digital photos and scans this is the BEST PSP 8 book I have used.
"If you have just a little knowledge of digital imaging this is the book for you. Illustrations are great and the text is easy to follow. Recommend you read PSP 8 "Fast and Easy" first and then read this book. Great Australian sense of humor throughout book.

McMahon does a better job of explaining PSP9's toolbars and basic workings. He also gives valuable insights into the digital darkroom while he discusses PSP9's functions. Like Koers, he uses excellent examples and sample photos to illustrate his points. The print quality is outstanding (the book was printed in Italy and, as with all Elsevier publications, the offset process is exemplary) and enhance the lessons.
For the aspiring photographer who wants to master digital darkroom techniques using PSP9, I recommend the following books:
This one (of course!)
Diane Koers' "Paint Shop Pro 9: Photographers' Guide"
David Kays' "Paint Shop Pro 9 for Dummies"
This book has everything you need including troubleshooting.
