Great for easy and detailed reference of everything in Photoshop Menus/Tools 22 Oct. 2005
By blair - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this a great book to go over and learn everything on how this program works (and lots of stuff that most training books don't cover). Now true, I and others find it difficult to use as purely a training manual (I like projects to learn from) and this provides no projects. But after completing my How To Use Illustrator AND Photoshop books, I got this book to go through and have a real understanding of the menu's and for easy and quick reference if I can't figure out how to do something. So I highly recomend it for that reason alone. As for learning the programs from the ground up...depends on your learning style.
Average quality writing and examples 12 Nov. 2008
By I. Seligman - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is voluminous, but quantity does not make up for quality. Some chapters are sketchy, so I found much better tutorials on the net, and in other books.

Shouldn't have to be this way. I'm glad I'm used to working with Photoshop, to do ok with the book.

IF I was getting one or two books on Photoshop, this would not be one of them.

These authors do not write clearly enough for beginners, and intermediate level PS users may be better served by buying higher ranked PS books, keyed to whether you are more into photography, or graphics.

Another winner in the Visual Quickstart series 10 Jun. 2007
By Dave Millman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had photoshop 5 and the corresponding Visual Quickstart guide. When I upgraded to CS2, I bought this book based on my satisfaction with the previous version. I was not disappointed.

The concept of these books is to provide a 1-3 page illustrated lesson on real world tasks. With photoshop, that works particularly well. I am an occasional user, and this book helps me get great results fast.

Could of been better 14 Feb. 2007
By H. Huntington - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contained a lot of information, but unfortunately the directions are rather shaky. The way they describe the information is correct, but telling you how to get to the steps is extremely hard to follow.

The book that I found much better is:

Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Photographers by Martin Evening
Great book to have on hand 30 Oct. 2013
By victoriao1205 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this for a college class on digital art tools and still have it and reference it today. It is very helpful on refreshing on myself on specific tools and where to find them in the maze that Photoshop is sometimes to one of us who don't use it on a daily basis.
