4.0 out of 5 stars The best introduction to photoshop I have found 23 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
In a crowded market this book stands out as a fine guide to the basics of a powerful program.
It is well laid out and comprehensive in coverage; the first guide I have found to list keyboard shortcuts.
All of the functions are explained, with more detail given to the common ones. This makes it a useful reference whilst carrying out a task and a source of just about all the techniques and information a beginner would need.
I thoroughly recommend it to beginners who are struggling to use, what I at least, found to be a puzzling and at times exasperating piece of software. At last my results are satisfying and I am encouraged to move on to more advanced work with the aid of this excellent book. By the way the price is real world too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just What I Needed! 28 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A really good book - it is detailed but very clear and explains things in a way which those who are not as computer literate as they would like to be can understand. The detailed contents list at the front is very good for finding a topic quickly. The step by step examples have good detailed labelling and the pictures of exactly what the screen should be displaying are a great help. An excellent tutorial book to work through and as also a reference book to dip into for the functions I don't often use and need to revise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even for the well-seasoned 21 Mar 2002
By Gisele W. Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I **LOVE** this book! I've been using Photoshop since version 4 and i'm self-taught. I am not an expert yet but then i don't consider myself a novice either.
This book is for everyone. What i most like about this book is the easy style and sample pages, The quick shortcuts to just about doing everything, and the explanation of why one tool works better than another.
I just attended a 2-day Photoshop class and the instructor highly recommended this book. at first, i thought that it was for the very beginner, but it's some much more. It's like a dictionary... you keep it for reference.
as i glanced at the instructor's book, i noticed that it was truly worn. she said that she's had to buy a second copy because she's used it so much. you can't possibly memorize everything about photoshop.. so why not have the best resource in town?? This BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Photoshop book, period 20 Sep 2001
By guy richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Photoshop is a deep and complex program and this book makes it (almost) simple. The book has several strengths -- first is McClelland's astonishing knowldge, next is his ability to explain complex things in terms even a beginner can understand, third is the brilliant way the information is organized. Face it, no matter how much knowlege a book contains, if you can't find the knowledge it's useless to you. The publisher and book designer make McClelland's information always easy to find, even if you are looking for some obscure feature like using the Color Range command to make a mask. No matter what your skill level, this book will open the Photoshop world further to you. I'm a graphics professional and I have a dozen Photoshop books on my shelf -- and this is the one I always pull out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop reference extraordinaire 30 Jan 2002
By Tommy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I love this book! I wish all software books were written this well. If you took 20 Photoshop books at random and put them through some magic process that took all the good stuff out and condensed them into 1 easy to read, well-organized, no fluff, no 1500 pages and 4 pounds of paper book, this would be what comes out.
When I picked this book off them shelf and started reading it, it was immediately obvious that the layout and organization were very good. The more I've used the book, the more I appreciate what it has to offer. Simply, a superior reference to Photoshop 6! It's really a "textbook" example of how to present information in a logical and easy to use fashion.
I didn't find having the images in black and white a problem at all. In the context of this book, color images would not add much information at all, although I'm sure they would add a lot to the price.
A superb reference book, well-written and organized. The Adobe user guide and Classroom in a book are now relegated to the back of the bookshelf.
Please please please...software book writers, use this book as a model of how to create your future books. This book shows well that less is often more. People are not buying software books by the pound, they are really more interested in quality information, not quantity!!
I'd like to give this book 10 stars, but 5 will have to suffice.

By "berwaz" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
you can start learning photoshop fast and easy. This book is suitable for beginners. It's full of illustrations and pictures, and to the point. In addition, you don't have to read a lot. it's a quick start. it's so informative and you can use it as manual too. even filters are covered, what are they and how you can use them step by step. good work Deke.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome 24 Jan 2004
By Ian J. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been reading this book for the last 30 minutes and it's one wow after another. I just turned to my dog and said "This book is amazing!" hehe.
Seriously. The dive in and "look what you can do with ps" style of this book is very impressive. I bought it as an alternative to the more advanced wow book. This is the one I was looking for. 4 thumbs up!
