Possibly the most comprehensive coverage of Photoshop between two covers
on 14 August 2012
This is a long-established classic, now updated for the recent release of CS6. Very literally the 'bible' in its very nearly complete coverage of all the features of Photoshop, it explores and explains the tools, settings and options of the program, probably far more extensively than any single user will ever need.
Photoshop is one of those programs where the experts may use 10-20% of its many features, the experienced users about 10% and the less experienced much less. Which features are used rather depends upon its various users; photographers will mostly use one group of features, designers another and those working with web sites yet another and they will still not cover everything between them.
This is a valuable resource for all Photoshop users, whatever field or fields they may work within. There may be other books that better or more completely cover a specific use of the software, photography would be one example, but this is far more comprehensive than they will be. If, for some reason, you needed to use it in some other way a more limited book may be of little use; this probably will provide the answer.
The best all-rounder on Photoshop that I know.
