This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CC Classroom in a Book (Kindle Edition)
As with all the Adobe Classroom in a Book range, this is one of the best ways in which to learn some of the features of the Adobe software. The instructions are clear, concise and user-friendly and offer a firm foundation from which to build your skills.

Highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book should be issued with every installation of Photoshop, 31 May 2014
Being new to Adobe Photoshop, I wanted something which would teach me the basics. Video tutorials are far and wide, and while useful, cannot easily be collated into one assembly. As a complete novice to Photoshop, I also found some of them confusing, making the whole prospect of mastering something as “complex” as an advanced photo-imaging software, very daunting.

Having said that, now I'm familiar with Photoshop, videos and articles make much more sense. That’s all thanks to this book, Adobe Photoshop: classroom in a book.

Having gone through the entire book, I'd say this is a must-read for anyone wanting to learn Adobe Photoshop starting from scratch, and, in my opinion, should be provided with every installation of Photoshop.

The authors take you by the hand and move you through each chapter, first making sure you can crawl, then teaching you how to walk your way through lessons.

The photographs and images in the lessons are all very clearly labeled and correspond well to the nearby text, making it extremely helpful for someone who doesn’t know their way around the interface.

There are mini questionnaires at the end of every chapter, probing your memory to see if you have learnt anything.

What this book doesn’t do is blind you with the science of how images are manipulated focusing, rather, on getting the steps right in achieving that end. Directions are straight to the point with minimal digression, yet hold your attention to the end of the chapter. Diagrams of layouts are extremely well presented with precise indications as to where everything is on the Photoshop Interface.

If I had to pick faults, I’d say some of the images you’re given to work with are bland and uninspiring. You are given seashells to move off a plate using Photoshop tools (?). In addition, if you are an experienced Photoshop user then this book may offer little. I happen to have bought both the CS6 and CC version of the paperbacks and aside from a few different illustrations and the few updates relevant to CC, the books are identical.

These minor points aside, this book is thoroughly recommended if you have no experience of using Adobe Photoshop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop CC, 19 April 2014

This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CC Classroom in a Book (Kindle Edition)
I felt I need to upgrade from the CS6 version as the software has changed in many areas. As I now have a Kindle this was a cheaper option. There are some new exercises and some of the old ones still remain. I recommend this book for anyone starting out with Photoshop CC.

Covers the main areas in photoshop. As I will only be editing photos some of it was not relevant for me (video and 3d) but I found it interesting as an overall intro.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tried the rest...the original is best, 25 Jan 2014

This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CC Classroom in a Book (Kindle Edition)
It makes sense that a book delivered by the makers of the software would be best and this book does not fall shy of this expectation. This a thoroughly informative and helpful book that even an absolute beginner like me could understand.

I've tried other books but they're all rampant with expectations of prior knowledge of the software and I just end up giving up. This is a long book but I'm working through it.
