5.0 out of 5 stars Visual Quickstart Guides set the standard 30 May 2010
By IanW VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Whenever I need a software guide, I serach the Amazon website to see if there is a 'Visual Quickstart Guide' for the product. If I find one, which I always seem to do, I look no further. These guides are full of useful 'tips and tricks' and serve as a self-teach for new users and a very handy reference for those with more experience.
In my view, these guides set the standard that others need to follow, and the Photoshop CS4 guide is no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop CS4: v.1: QuickStart Guide 11 April 2010
By Bob A
Format:Paperback
The book arrived within three days and was in excellent condition. This is the first time I have used a Visual QuickStart Guide and so far I have been impressed with the layout and the quality of the information given. Compared with my previous experience of the Dummies series this guide uses a more helpful visual step by step approach for each item it is covering. The guide also covers the subject matter very thoroughly and has plenty of examples to help you become more familiar with CS4. An excellent buy at a very good price.
