Praise for Photoshop CS3: Essential Skills:
"This book is a must for anyone new to CS3." "Amazon.com reviewer"
"Galer presents a really useful set of teaching tools: A fine set of DVD movie tutorials and exercise images accompany a well-written book...I have several CS3 books, and I like this one best." "Amazon.com reviewer"
"This book is worth purchasing for the DVD alone - it is an excellent way to learn CS3." "Amazon.co.uk reviewer"
"I would strongly recommend this book because the content is excellent and the supporting DVD, totally brilliant." "Amazon.co.uk reviewer"
"After years of badly designed software manuals we are now starting to see books come to life, and we'd put this on a pedestal above the best. Superb design, really clear illustrations, great photography and clean navigation. Mark's put his lecturing skills into practice to deliver a solid structure so you can't fail to find the area of Photoshop you're struggling with and then get the answers quickly. Hundreds of illustrations, sound advice. Lots of projects with quality photos so you really see how to convert to black and white, how to retouch and how to make quality cut outs, including one of the best guides to using the complex pen tool. If you only want to buy one Photoshop book...this is it!" "ephotozine.com"
