1.0 out of 5 stars Not much help without the supporting images, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Photoshop CC: Visual QuickStart Guide (Visual Quickstart Guides) (Paperback)
This should be a great book; the pictures are of high quality and the layout of the text is clear. However, although there are some images available from the Peachpit web site grouped in seven collections (Photos Part 1-7), they do not relate directly to the 25 chapters in the book and appear in an order unrelated to the page numbers. Just one example: on page 348 there are two images of a sports car on a country road, the idea being to cut out the car, enlarge it slightly and replace it on the road. Two pictures (before and after) are shown in the book but these are not included in the downloadable "Bonus Content". The associated instructions, which start "On the layers panel, click a layer ...", are not much help without an equivalent image to work on. So, as a way of learning Photoshop, it does not work well without enough images.

As a 500 page reference book, it is incomplete and the index frequently fails to identify relevant material. The reader would do much better with the free Adobe downloadable PDF "Adobe Photoshop Help and Tutorials", a 1054 page manual.

In conclusion, this is a disappointment; neither a good learning tool nor a good reference tool.
