"[This book] shows you in-depth how to master the features of CS5 so that you can take full advantage of the program and produce the highest quality imagery possible.. The book is broken down into 13 topic-based chapters, each of which are designed to simulate an actual workshop session. It shows you the specific methods, tips and techniques that are needed to complete each process, and explains, in detail , how it all fits into your complete workflow.. The chapters are well written and clearly noted whether they've been written by Martin, Jeff or both, and every single page features screenshots and photographic examples to illustrate the topic or method that's being explained. There are also tons of sidebar tips and explanations that help you better understand just what you're doing and why.. If you've reade Martin Evening or Jeff Schewe's books before, you know that they're both excellent, no nonsense writers and teachers, so having a book that's written by not just one expert, but two, means having one of the best, if not the best Photoshop reference manuals around. Whether you're looking to become an expert at retouching, or if you want to be more efficient at outputting professional quality digital image files for print or for commercial clients, this book will advance your skills to a new level of mastery and Photoshop expertise.. The bottom line is this: if you're a professional photographer, then you'll definitely want Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Photographers: the Ultimate Workshop. I'd also highly recommend it to amateurs and hobby photographers, because you'll learn a while lot in 426 pages from a pair of experienced experts."--Dan Bailey's Adventure Photography Blog

One should be very familiar with Photoshop CS5 software before reading The Ultimate Workshop.. For those photographers who are Photoshop veterans, The Ultimate Workshop will teach you some tricks to produce better photos. From what to look for in setting up the shot to the nuances seen after a slightly changed photo during the editing process, this is a complete guide.. The side-by-side, before and after photographs and color screen shots used in the text help even the Photoshop novice see the difference CS5 software makes when editing an image.. Professional photographer Martin Evening and professional imager and Photoshop expert Jeff Schewe, both Photoshop Hall of Famers, created this guidebook that requires little reading yet is full of information to help your Photoshop CS5 skills skyrocket and give your photos the edge they need to push them to the top of the publishers stack.. If you are savvy with Photoshop CS5, grab your copy and have fun with it!"--San Francisco Book Review
"Evening's book convinced me that I need to buy the upgrade from CS4 to CS5, and that his books belong on every professional photographer's bookshelf."--The Picture Professional

Martin's books are written in an easy to understand style and are very 'to the point' with little or no frivolity ensuring you get the most from the immense amount of information contained within.
If you haven't read Martin Evenings books before, don't be tempted to buy this on its own as it was designed to be read after and in conjunction with "Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Photographers: A professional image editor's guide to the creative use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC"
I teach digital aspects of both graphic design and fashion promotion and this will be only one of two technical photographic books I will emphasise on the recommended reading list for my students. The other is Photoshop for Photographers (Martin Evening) - unsurprisingly!
Both of these books are excellent value but this latest one is a gem and no serious photographic or design professional should be without it!
Congratulations to Martin Evening and Jeff Schewe for such magnificent work, guys!
It is not a book for beginners or very casual users, who will simply not have the background knowledge needed in either photoshop or digital imaging to get the best out of it and will almost certainly find it too much like hard work, as some of the other reviews indicate. Those for whom Photoshop forms a significant part of working life will find this an essential companion, with plenty here to raise standards, add polish to images and even suggest occasions when it is better to step back, put down the Wacom and pursue effects in-camera. That many of those who contributed to the book are intimately involved with Photoshop's development speaks volumes about how closely the book reflects the programs underpinnings.
I am not a raw beginner in PS and have attended a number of courses but I found this challenging - the videos are really disappointing- the author whizzes through these with bare descriptions as to what he is doing or why.
