O.K. You have just upgraded from photoshop CS2 to photoshop CS3. Or...you have finally upgraded from photoshop elements to the latest version of photoshop. The problem is, the manual that comes with the software is unreadable, naturally, and there are so many photoshop books that you have no idea which one to choose. Well, fortunately for you I have spent a small fortune buying and testing many of them and found this one to be just right. Despite what the title says, "for photographers," this book is down right wonderful for beginners also. For example, it illustrates the different key commands in color, one for pcs and one for macs for each command. That makes it really easy to follow. It covers the basis in easy to follow steps and the more in depth coverage for serious photographers. It is awash with illustrations, photographs and easy to follow instructions. It is pricey, but no more so than others of its type, and it is very large and comprehensive. So I say, get this book above all the others out there.
