Mastering intricacies of Adobe Photoshop
on 21 August 2009
Once again, a how-to book in the "Dummy" series has been invaluable in deciphering the complexities of Adobe programs. In this case, the Photoshop program explained has myriads of functions and one needs to know point A in order to arrive at Point B. Highly useful in a book of this sort is graphic clarity and a good index (most publishers seem to care little about indexes) so that readers can quickly find answers to questions, returning, for example, to Point A to refresh their memories.
A tear-out section in the book makes it possible to have short-cut keyboard commands nearby for quick reference.
The "Dummy" series can be plagued by humorous asides that get tiresome, but this volume has reduced those to a disc rete number.
As a devourer of how-to computer books and hopeless nerd, I suspect that this book is the best possible solution for a good introduction to Photoshop (CS in my case).
