this was one of teh first photoshop books i bought, along with another of Scott Kelby's books Photoshop for Digital Photographers, they are both great and make an excellent reference pair. Down and Dirty tricks was infinitely helpful to me, before it i really didn't know how to use any of the good tools in photoshop, and even though the book is set up as seperate instructions on how to make specific projects (which can be rather helpful at times so you can just jump in and start), I learned techniques and tricks that i use everyday in photoshop, and the side bars in this book help almost as much as the main content, giving you keyboard shortcuts and extra info. Although this book is not very indepth about advanced concepts in photoshop, it shows you how to do alot of neat stuff and Scott Kelby is a funny author so its not as dry as some of the other photoshop books I have read.

AS a recent graduate of a web design program I found this book to be both pratical and inspirational. The steps are easy to follow and produce fantastic results which have helped add some energy to my work. For anyone interested in Photoshop 7 this is the must have book.

A must have for any Photoshop/Design teacher. The tutorials of this book is impressively simple yet with breath-taking results. My students simply love to try out all of the possibilites this book offers while practicing the tools and effects that Photoshop offer us. That book revealed some features of Photoshop that I never used before. Easy to use, easy to learn and very straight forward content.

Adobe is used to having a lot of books written on its products. They tend to be the most complex of any program on the market, but it is because they are so powerful. If you have got the Photoshop bug and can't make pretty changes to your pictures or projects, this is a good book to start with!!!
Yes it will not teach you a lot of the "Why???" of Photoshop, that can take some years to learn anyway. A lot of Photoshop books come it two groups, those that know Photoshop and those who don't. Most of those that are for the expert expect you to know your Gaussian Blur from your Unsharp Mask and what kind of effect it will have on your picture. Photoshop "cookbooks" as some have called them teach by example, this author's "recipe's" are easy to follow and will give hints in the margins to learn more indepth or customize. Again you might be mimicing the author, but sometimes that is all you need to feel good about your investment in Photoshop. The CS (PS 8) book was a complete rewrite from the Photoshop 7 book, I own both because both have a lot to offer that was different enough to almost consider them volumes 1 & 2. Also if you are just needing digital photographry help, I would check out Scott Kelby's books on just digital photographry.

An outstanding book for digi-art!
I have used just about every effect you can think of in photoshop.
This book shows you how to do some very creative work in CS and you can use them in 7 as well. Photo's take on a brand new creative world with these tools, some of which I never knew possible! I have worked in the publishing arena some 20 years now and have won online photography contests with the techniques found in this book.
I would suggest Scott Kelby's new book for anyone with a photoshop skill set of 5 or better on a scale of 1 to 10.
No matter what books you now have on hand, Down & Dirty Tricks will be the 1st book you reach for when the going gets tough and the competition is rough!

"Down and Dirty Tricks" by Scott Kelby is more than just a collection of tutorials on how to get dynamic effects with Adobe Photoshop's plethora of options, it is a way for PS users to familarize theirselves with all the program has to offer through these step-by-step recipes for creating eye-catching effects in digital art and graphics. While naysayers make the point that Kelby has simply rehashed many frequently seen tutorials from the Web, that is not true. Many tutorials to create similar effects to the ones found here can be seen on different sites, such as teamphotoshop.com, but Kelby's instructions and well-rounded use of the program through the book's tutorials should give even an inexperienced PS user a good time learning the program and a good variety of skills. This book is a valuable addition to the library of any graphic artist or desiger or just anyone who is interested in doing things with Photoshop. Highly recommended.

I love this book, bottom line, I've spent hours creating special effects. Its very important to carefully read each paragraph. You can miss a few steps, however, as you get more comfortable with the tool, the special effects are amazing and empowering. For the most part the book provides step by step examples and pictures to verify your at the correct stage. The visual aids were very helpful when I missed a step. Here are the following techniques I liked: Gel Characters, liquid Gold and Chrome Characters, Glass pills, Carved in Stone, Glass tabs, Full metal jacket, Studio Tarp, ultimate chrome, Going for the Gold, and saturday night effects. The book covers alot of the Photoshop functionality in under 300 pages.
