Format: Paperback
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.

Having used Photoshop 7 for a few years I figured I could handle CS5 without too many problems, given enough time. Well, after watching numerous tutorials, and then jotting down important points on a notepad I realized I was getting nowhere, slowly. It was time to purchase a book, and with Amazon's good pricing I purchased Adobe Photoshop CS5, Classroom in a Book. I had purchased Adobe's Classroom in a Book for Photoshop 7 when first learning that version and found it very helpful. Unfortunately I found their CS5 Book a little too brief in their instructions as to how to complete an exercise, and it was here that I realized I needed more information. I must add that I was delving into Layers and Masks that I hadn't used in Photoshop 7, so my past experience was of no help. After reading many reviews I decided to get The Missing Manual, by Lesa Snider. I "gulped" when I saw the size of it (all 795 pages), but after a short while realized it was a veritable "Bible" with the answers to all of my questions. So I can now get some quick lessons with Classroom in a Book and when I encounter a problem I know where I can find the answer. The "in-depth" answers in The missing Manual ensure that long after I have finished the lessons in the Classroom book, my Missing Manual Bible will be close at hand to my computer helping me gain more experience.

I bought Photoshop CS5 and I found the help section complicated or too technical. Then I started looking to buy a book on CS5; and reading the many reviews on them. I decided on 'The Missing Manual'. It is easy to follow in plain language. I improved my level in Photoshop by a great deal thanks to this book; and for more technical info I go online to Adobe. I had some problems in a couple of chapter, but I think it is because of my PC. I am more then half way in the book and enjoyed everything so far.

No manual on Photoshop is ever going to be an "easy read" but, as with most "Missing Manuals", this book makes the best of a difficult job. Not something that you should try to read from cover to cover. I elected to get the e-book version to provide something constructive to read when waiting for that delayed flight.... :-)
