5.0 out of 5 stars The Missing Manual March 6 2011
By Kodiak
This book is aptly named as it was a missing component of my Photoshop program. It is a well written and well delivered instruction manual and although I have been using Photoshop for over two years and consider myself a fairly experienced user, I found many new hints and techniques within this book that have certainly helped me use the program to its full advantage.
