This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Photographers: A professional image editor's guide to the creative use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC (Paperback)
I struggled with Martin Evenings Photoshop 7 book - he does not pitch himself at beginners. I used his CS2 book as my standard reference. Having just upgraded to CS5 I preordered this book and have been really impressed. Its very well laid out as usual, and it covers pretty much everything a photographer would need to know, with plenty of step-through examples and recommendations about settings that might be suited to various images. Camera RAW 6 is a huge improvement on CS2, and its pretty hard to imagine having the time to figure it out alone. I read this through in a week - its an enjoyable read as well as helpful. A top quality product - both CS5, and the book. Beginners would be advised to read something 'easier' first.
