Product Description

Review

"He has a project-based approach—gorgeous screenshots and illustrations. ¿Scott Kelby does a beautiful job. It is not an exhaustive book and the great thing about it is if you want to work on these projects, he's got it."
—John Nemorovski, PIXIQ

"Anytime I know I’m going to be on a long flight I like to take the books from this series and re-read them because I always pick up great new things each time. While it’s more of a recipe book that you'll use as a reference, I find myself using this book at least once a month for some tricky challenge I face. I love it and can’t live without it!”

Skill Level: ALL - Beginner to Advanced
Value: Excellent (worth every penny)
Recommendation: Must Own for those who don’t have previous editions and worth the upgrade for those doing video or who want to pick up modern day skills. ¿

–Ron Martinsen, ronmartblog.com

As others have already said, a fantastic series of books for quickly getting to grips with Photoshop. I have the whole series & consider them a must buy for photographers wanting to get to grips with each new version of the program.

However, as several others are reporting, my copy fell apart on first viewing, the pages appearing not to be properly glued to the spine. Hope Amazon do something about this as I would like to exchange my faulty copy. I do not want a refund or a discount to retain my current copy.

All my versions up to CS5 have had a lot of use & are still fine. My CS5 version has not fallen apart but was exchanged twice as about 20 pages were only very faintly printed. The third version was the same but I assumed there was no point exchanging again as they were probably the same.

This does not detract from the quality of the books content but does not reflect well on the quality of the printers.

I will take this up direct with Amazon as I do not wish to be without the book but would like one that will not fall apart.

Scott Kelby is always worth reading. I've had his books for Lightroom, Elements and Photoshop. In all books, he approaches the topics in a really friendly way, but nevertheless gets the reader to the heart of the programmes. Plenty of tips for new and Experienced readers alike. I rate the quality of his teaching very highly. He covers most of the features of PS, but bear in mind this book is aimed at the photographer, so the graphic designer would not really feel the benefit. No sections on fancy text formatting, for example. However the clue is in the title of the book - this is aimed at photographers!

However this is an expensive book and, after only 8 days use, the pages are falling out. I note others have experienced this problem so we can assume a quality issue with the manufacturer. The quality of the book (even if it hadn't fallen apart) falls way short of the quality of Martin Evening's book. I am comparing the actual book here, not the content. Kelby should do better in this respect as it does devalue the whole package in my eyes.

Amazon's returns policy is excellent though, so I have arranged for a replacement to be sent. I suspect the quality may be similar however, as this book feels very similar to all of Kelbys books - the pages do have a very thin feel to them. Fingers crossed the binding will be better.

For content I would happily give 5 stars, but this book gets a lot of use and needs to be robust; in this respect the quality falls WAY short of expectations.

I am a fan of CS- photoshop

I crave for knowledge in the art of photography, and the new darkroom [computer]

Of the past books I have used, Scott Kelby has to be the easyest and most helpful I have found...

Cs4 & now Cs6 , Eager to read his version of photoshop Cs6, I placed my name down to order this softback book.

Now after a month the pages are falling out , it started in the Index, then spread to the rest of the book..

each time I read it I end up gluing more of the pages in again...

This must be a fault in trying to get the book out quickly ,somthing went wrong..

I am now left wondering when I will have to buy a second book as all the pages in my existing cs6 book, will be all over the floor......

A feature of Scott Kelby's approach is the practicality that he brings to the table. He explains things simply and with a dose of humour, that makes him a superb guide to users with easy to follow instructions laid out in logical order.

Rather than detail the content (which you can see from the helpful "Look Inside" feature), it might be more helpful to compare three of the most widely used of the myriad of Photoshop user guides that are on the market - Photoshop CS6 For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers)), Scott Kelby's Adobe Photoshop CS6 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices That Matter) and Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Photographers: A professional image editor's guide to the creative use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC.

The Dummies book is best for those completely new to Adobe Photoshop and indeed to image processing software. Unlike the other two, it is more general and so includes more on the creative art or design elements of the software. It's well organized, logical and clear. While none of the three books come with a CD of photos, the Dummies is the only one not to provide web-based images that you can work on along with the book. In fact, it's less of an instruction book and more of a general resource, although it is laid out such that you can work through it if you want to with your own images. The trademark List of 10s contained in Dummies works well here - and is less of a stretch than it can sometimes be in the series. For the new user it's very, very good indeed.

Kelby though is still my "go-to guy" for Photoshop.
