5.0 out of 5 stars Getting to grips with CC 5 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Martin Evening is a first class writer, and he knows photoshop inside out, as well as having an excellent knowledge of both Mac and PC. If like me you are using Mac for the first time then its worth reading the first chapters as Martin gives a lot of info on short cuts, for both Mac and PC. There is no disc as a buyer of the book you can access info on the web and all additional content is now on line. Emphasis is on the photoshop tools most used by photographers. On line you can access movie tutorials as well as download some of the images for practice. for me its a dip in book, its really huge so maybe classed as a CC Bible or certainly a reference book. I have picked out all of the stuff I struggle with, and work bit by bit through the info. I tend to use my own photos rather than downloading but thats my choice. If you are serious and really want to work at understanding how you can edit your photos and get the best out of photoshop then I believe this book is worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic reference book brought up to date 27 July 2013
By Invicta
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Adobe caused quite a stir when they announced the Adobe Creative Cloud and that applications such as Photoshop would be subscription based rather than a one-off license payment. One of the advantages of the subscription model is that Adobe can release feature updates as soon as development is complete rather than wait 18-24 months for the next full product release. This promise of a drip feed of new features makes it a challenge to keep reference books such as this one current and up-to-date. This review aims to cover:

1) How Martin Evening's book will keep pace with the more frequent changes in Photoshop CC

2) Summary of the book's content

3) What's new in Photoshop CC

Book updates

As Adobe Photoshop CC will be updated more frequently than previous versions Martin Evening's approach is to provide free bulletin updates in PDF format via the book's companion web site. A new version of the book is planned for each new major release of Photoshop CC combining all the updates into a new book.

Book summary

The book is comprised of 13 chapters and an index totalling 792 pages. There are 48 more pages than the previous CS6 version. Although there are more pages the new book is slightly thinner than before using a thinner and glossier paper.

The chapter layout in the book remains the same as for CS6; the change in page count between the CC and CS6 version indicates where the most significant book updates are.

1) Photoshop Fundamentals + 2 pages
2) Configuring Photoshop + 4 pages, includes extra information on Retina displays.
3) Camera Raw Processing + 24 pages, most of the changes for Photoshop CC are in Camera Raw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this book on the Kindle 25 Nov 2013
The content of this book is great as others have already stated. However I purchased the kindle version. Clearly it was never going to work on a standard monochrome kindle but I was hoping to read it on the ipad kindle app. Sadly the layout is hopelessly poor. The illustration and sides boxes appear almost at random in the main body of the text. Several times I was confused by what I was reading only to realise what looked like a paragraph of text was in fact the text accompanying an illustration on the next page.

In the end I gave up and asked for (and received) a refund. I am about to order the print version.

I have given the book a five star review because the content deserves it.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whilst it is clear that Evening knows his stuff when it comes to Photoshop, I would say that he assumes his readers do too. I found there was a lot of technical details about the software that probably the average photographer doesn't need/want to know, and sometimes not enough detail in areas where those less familiar with Photoshop would like a bit more guidance and support.

Previously I am used to Scott Kelby's books and whilst his style does grate on some people, it didn't bother me too much. He got the point quickly, showed the features the average person would like to use and presented them in a clear fashion. I will be buying the Kelby book when it comes out to replace this.

I find even the layout is a little dated looking to me and the stock photos not that inspiring either but I would have been okay with this if the content had been what I was looking for. It has some good points and there are free videos online accompanying the book plus sections that are from previous versions of the book not included in this book available for free download which is helpful. However it's just not the 'bible of all things photoshop' I was looking for and I think for the inexperienced user, it's not a good place to start.
