5.0 out of 5 stars Real tips, no (bad) trips, 18 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Photoshop CS5: Top 100 Simplified Tips and Tricks (Top 100 Simplified Tips & Tricks) (Paperback)
Books don't come much better than this. Top 100 Simplified Tips & Tricks is magisterially designed and lavishly illustrated. This is the only book on Photoshop CS5 that I know which really makes everything plain--the only one that doesn't leave you clamouring for the CS5 Help. Every move is laid out and accompanied by an illustration. It is wonderfully authoritative, but also allows you to strain at the leash, with very helpful tips. Lynette Kent explains, and then allows you to explore. It is a wonderfully graded guide, which allows you to skip without being whistled back.

I jumped from the first couple of chapters, having heeded such advice as changing the RGB, to the creative section in the back--and a couple of hours later I had transformed some of my pics into pen & ink and pencil drawings. Yes, the 'Tips & Tricks' extend way beyond any commonplace, and really get you somewhere.

If I were a Photoshop Dante, in the middle of a dark forest, I'd be damn glad to have Ms Kent as my Virgil.

This is by far the best book on Photoshop that I've read. Buy it!
