5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Photoshop Resource 6 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is obviously a rehash of the other How to Cheat in Photoshop books which sometimes does not quite work, as PS CC has some minor changes to the way it works compared to other versions. I am steadily working my way through the book and it is good to have the reference files on the website and movies to view. Steve Caplin has obviously been at it a number of years and has learnt just about everything there is to know about tweaking images in Photoshop to create a montage. I found this a book to keep dipping into and a good resource on how to achieve a particular image, or which technique to actually use for an effect. You can spend hours playing and hopefully this time will shorten as my knowledge increases. The website also has a good forum and Friday challenge which looks worthwhile to test skills, which I hope to have a go at. Already I have managed to move a lizards tail using puppet warp and give a good shadow to make it realistic and better composition, using techniques from the book. Worth the asking price if you are into PS CC.

Latest in the series of "How to Cheat..." and it is still great. If you learn by example you will love this. Remember the sample problems at the end of the chapters in school? This is it for Photoshop CC.

Overall a good way to learn a wide variety of Photoshop features. It's kind of cartoonish and a little bland.
