HASH(0x9e075ca8) out of 5 stars Easy to Follow Sept. 10 2010
By Kiera L. Mctigue - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
CS4 didn't complete changed the game, so if you're familiar with previous Photoshops, you should be good. This book does give good advice for Photoshop in general. It's not as humorous as Scott Kelby, but very straightforward. I purchased this for a digital photo editing class, and didn't read all of it, but what I read was pretty helpful. It's good to reference occasionally even for a Photoshop junkie like myself. You never know when you can learn a new trick!

HASH(0x9e075bac) out of 5 stars some good methods June 2 2012
By Ronald Finnerty - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
not being a photoshop expert i needed a book for ideas on how to do some things, this is a good source for general techniques and has some I never thought of.
now that cs6 is out though, some of the techniques are even easier than before and more versatile.
These still work but you will be amazed at new options that do a better job in cs6.
Bottom line, i would still buy this book today. It stays in my goto library.

I use Photoshop every day at work, and this book is an invaluable reference. I love how I can look things up quickly and get back to the project at hand in a snap.
