5.0 out of 5 stars Takes the fear out of Photoshop!, 3 July 2007
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS2 One-on-One (Paperback)
Adobe Photoshop is the best and the worst program for amateur photographers. It is the best because it is used by almost every professional and the results speak for themselves. However, for the amateur, it is the "worst" because it requires a highly methodical approach to take a photograph from start to finish - you have to know what you are doing otherwise you can easily end up with a dogs dinner!

I have tried reading several other books on Photoshop and they all have an immediate hypnotic effect, sending me straight to sleep.

Deke McClelland is a fanstastic tutor. He talks to you directly in language that really makes sense. He then gives step by step instructions and provides fantastic illustrations of each point so you can understand what is happening on screen. It is like having a professional photo editor looking over your shoulder whilst you work. He even provides a high resolution DVD ROM that gives hours of video tuition. At full price it's great value for money but Amazon goes one better and gives a further £10 discount.
