5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Learning Package, 29 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Learn Adobe Photoshop CS4 by Video: Core Training in Visual Communication (Paperback)
I have bought many books and dvd's to help me to learn Photoshop. Most of them bought after reading their reviews but unfortunately found that most of these revives are emotionally written and some of them seems to be written by friend of the author or publisher.

This DVD package shows you how to use Photoshop in the way it is being produced for. One of the product (Keyko) seems to have produced for babies and others show you the way they use Photoshop.

This video is very long, 19 hours in total and there are 10 chapters each containing very very informative lessons which are not too long and not too short either.
The lessons tell you how to use tools and when to use them.You will learn how to make a proper selection using different tools and layers section will give you a good basic knowledge of layers. You will learn the basic but the foundation knowledge (This is what you need) in layer mask,adjustment mask and using adjustment layers.
The voice is American(I believe)and pleasant. All the way you feel like you are in a classroom or having a personal tutor. I am a maths teacher and I think he is doing a very good job, by now I have piked up some good points from him.
If you are looking to invest in a Photoshop learning materials this will be a excellent choice. I am using this video with "Classroom in a Book" and "Layer" by Matt Kloskowaki"

Thanks Adobe!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!, 19 Sep 2009
This review is from: Learn Adobe Photoshop CS4 by Video: Core Training in Visual Communication (Paperback)
"Learn Adobe Photoshop CS4 by Video" is a good and simple book, including a DVD and a written book. You can play the DVD on your computer but not a regular DVD player hooked up with you TV.

It gives you a simple and efficient way to learn the Photoshop software without buying the software. This can be extremely valuable for young professionals: you can use the video to learn Photoshop and then do the work in your office with the real software. The video show you all the pull-down menus, tool bars, etc.

I think this book is very helpful. You can actually learn how to use Photoshop by simply watching the video on the DVD, and save a lot of money. Using DVD and video to teach software is a great idea. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and thorough, 27 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Learn Adobe Photoshop CS4 by Video: Core Training in Visual Communication (Paperback)
This is by far the best training I have used for any software. It is well structured into small modules which can be readily absorbed, navigation is simple and repeats of sections are easy. Not only have I learned how to do things, I have discovered a whole raft of techniques I never even knew existed, many of which will make my Photoshop use easier and quicker as well as giving better output. Highly recommended.

An excellent training and reference product. I haven't even got through half this DVD but I have learnt more than in an 600, two day one- to-one!

4.0 out of 5 stars CS4 video appraisal, 22 July 2009

This review is from: Learn Adobe Photoshop CS4 by Video: Core Training in Visual Communication (Paperback)
The DVD covers most of the main points of CS4 but there were places where I thought that it could have explained things to a greater depth. I also found that the main voice was a little on the droning side. All that said, it was a good enough video for anybody wanting to learn the basics of CS4.
