5.0 out of 5 stars at last ....., 26 Jan. 2006
This review is from: The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
I have owned several Photoshop books including some described as "the bible", and I find the biggest problem with them is this: they go into great depths conveying how much the author knows about the subject, but when it comes to telling you a good place to start for yourself - "well that's something you will learn from experience - now go ahead and get 15 years under your belt, like I had to".
In this book Scott Kelby actually gives you the benefit of his experience - take the unsharp mask for instance, after a simple explanation of what the controls do he then gives you a range of settings that he personally prefers - some for interior shots, some for portraits, some for graphics etc. This is invaluable - I buy books to learn how the application will affect my images, not have a theory lesson as an author congratulates himself on how much he knows about Photoshop.
Great book
