Book Description

3 Oct 2001 0735712093 978-0735712096 1

When it comes to Photoshop(r), time is money, and this hot new book (from Scott Kelby and Felix Nelson, the team behind Photoshop User magazine) is all about speed, speed, and more speed! This book is all tips--there are no special effects: no flaming type, no glows, etc.--it's just packed cover-to-cover with nothing little-known tricks and tips that the pros use every day to get twice the work done in half the time.

The idea behind this book comes from something that every great Photoshop book already has--those valuable little sidebar tips. We found that we often read those tips first, before we'd even actually read the chapter. The only problem is, there's just not enough of 'em. So we thought, "Wouldn't it be cool if there was a Photoshop book, and the whole book, cover-to-cover, was nothing but those great sidebar tips." That's what we've created in this book, which is all about the fun (and bragging rights) that come with knowing "all the inside tips."

The reason why the book's slogan is "speed kills!," is because this is the book that will make you faster and more productive than ever so you can "smoke the competition."

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome Killer Book 23 Oct 2001
By Mirko L. Cukich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read a lot of books, magazines and information on-line. I don't like to recommend something unless I am absolutely sure that it is good. But every now and then there comes a book which is beyond good and "Simply Awesome". This is one of those books. Since I got this book recently, I have not been able to put it down. Each time I turn the page it just seems to get better and better. There are a lot of books on the market that you can read and just put on the shelf.
This book isn't one of them. It's just choked full with so much information that coming back to it is always a pleasure. I wish more books were awesome like this one. This book is one that I am proud to have in my library and also recommend to my friends and colleagues to have in their library too. Scott and Felix have given us a great book to help us add more tools to our digital palette so we can be the best PhotoShop users we can be.
Remember, Knowledge is Power and Killer Knowledge is Killer power.
Thank you Scott and Felix for writing such a Awesome and Killer book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop 6 Killer Tips 26 Nov 2001
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been using Photoshop for about 8 years now & have purchased
several books on the program. This book is one of the best books that I have ever used. The great thing about Scott Kelby's books are that you can start using them as soon as you read them, meaning you don't have to read 12-17 pages before you try out a technique. Also the chances of you finishing this book before it collects dust are very real because the reading is not boring & the book is very intriging. The best asset about this book is if you're new to Photoshop you don't have to be a guru to use this book. The infomation in this book allows you to be productive as soon as you start reading just one page. The title is misleading because it not only offers tips but it allow offers design tips, color correction tips, etc. You will find things in this book that you won't find anywhere else on the program. If you are new to Photoshop this book is crucial until you get up to speed.What separates Scott's books & videos from others is that his teachings are done in a very entertaining approach.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty darn great! 1 Dec 2001
By skunktrain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am really enjoying this book, but I have to say, it's a mixed bag. I don't consider myself "advanced" in Photoshop (by any means) but some of the tips seemed pretty obvious to me. But I guess the point is - they won't be obvious to *everyone*. No one tip is unknown to everyone, right?
But still, some of it was basic stuff. Not a lot, but a little. Yet, it is a great book. Great to read, easy to thumb through. I am learning new things left and right. I am very happy I got this book.
I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it's a bit of a slim book for the price. Try to get a discount price on it if possible. And - don't expect to be amazed by *every* tip. Some of them probably will not be new to you. But it's still definitely worth a look. And it does have some insanely great tips!

4.0 out of 5 stars Key Word -- Tips, and lots of them 9 Mar 2002
By "shalazar" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I purchased this book sight unseen on a friend's recommendation. When the book first came, my first impression was, "Oh boy, I spent money on one of these tip books." However, after reading the book, it turned out to be money well-spent.
I've been a faithful Photoshop user for nearly 3 years now, and I have about 75 little stick em notes placed throughout this book. I even had my fair share of "Wow, no way" moments.
Regardless of your level of experience with Photoshop, you will learn something new from this book's concise and well-written tips. If you're looking for "why's" please continue looking elsewhere. If you're looking for tutorials, keep looking. But if you're interested in increasing the speed and productivity from your everday use of the program, this book is definitely one for your shelf.
