4.0 out of 5 stars Gives an insight to what can be done with PSP. 13 Jan. 2010
By J.B.
Format:Paperback
This book takes you beyond the beginner into the intermediate level of using Paint Shop Pro by using a series of step by step tutorials. It expects the user to have a basic knowledge (though there is an appendix which gives an outline of the tools)If you wish to work on the same images they are available on line. All in all a useful guide into using PSP, but don't expect it to take you into the higher levels.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not at all what I expected... 19 Jun. 2006
By P. Breakfield IV - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking to make "trick photos" and are new to PSP then this might be for you. If you are looking to use PSP to tweak and fine-tune, or even make drastic changes to improve pictures, this is not the book. It is more gimmicky than practical. There are much better books if you are serious about learning how to work with PSP. I was very disappointed with this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good concept, bad execution 21 Jun. 2006
By JamG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am a newbie at photoediting and was looking to learn how to use my new program. I liked the book's format, which is to learn by doing projects. However the author must assume the reader already knows the basics. He left out vital instructions and I was unable to complete most of the projects.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Support from Publishers 11 Oct. 2006
By Fc Swart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am really disappointed in the book and the publishers. Suppose to download sample photos to do projects which are nowhere to be found on their website. They do not even bother to attend to any correspondence send to them. Needless to say, I'll never buy a book from Sams Publishing again. I was your client.
4.0 out of 5 stars Corel Paint Shop Pro X Digital Darkroom 13 Jan. 2007
By Greg Johnstone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is more of ideas book. I picked this up from the other reviews I read, so I wasnt dissappointed. I purchased Paint shop for photographers as well, which gives the how to. This book is light on for advice on how to, but has lots of projects to inspire. Good value overall.
5.0 out of 5 stars Paintshop Pro X Revealed 3 July 2007
By Paul Ciurcina Sr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I opened the book and never put it down. Excellent, I felt I was in a class-room. The downloads were perfect for using with the lessons. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a quick course in PSS-Pro X.
The book opens a world of creative thinking. .
