This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: A Professional Image Editor's Guide to the Creative use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC (Paperback)
This book is huge!
I have raed Martin Evening's book on Lightroom and like his approach so invested in this Photoshop book. It is a complete Photoshop Bible.
It starts on recommendations for setting up Photoshop. THese chapters are normally the stuff you don't bother reading, but there is some very interesting stuff in these pages.
The book is well laid out, and follows a logical sequence as to how you would use it.
For me everything is explained in a way I can understand, with box outs giving additional relevant information, without muddling the main text.
I would recommend reading it from beginning to end.
I defy anyone to read any chapter of this book and not learn something new, whatever their level of Photoshop knowledge.
SOME of the pictures are available on the accompanying DVD, allowing you to work on he same files and replicate the results in the book.
THere are 2 hours of video on the DVD as well, as sometimes seeing is better than reading.
Great book, which I would describe as the ultimate Photoshop reference.
