Great for aspiring graphical designers...,
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS3 One-on-One (Paperback)
...Not so great for photographers, really. Deke's obviously coming from the designer side to Photoshop and you wont find that much in the book about improving your photographs, not directly in any case. Sure, you get the basic hue/saturation and brightness commands but the vast majority of examples are geared towards image designers.
That said, it's still a great book, even if you are a photographer there's plenty to pick up here - layers are layers after all - and Deke is an admirable writer/teacher. Normally, I can't stand people trying to be funny in these kinds of books, but I actually find Deke entertaining!
And finally, to the former reviewer: this is not that kind of book and I dont know why you would expect anything else. Look elsewhere for CS3's advanced/new features, this is a basic, cover-all-the-bases introduction and if CS3 has a lot in common with CS2, then so will the respective books.
