5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for techniques that are often overlooked, 20 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Cheat in Photoshop CS3: The art of creating photorealistic montages (Paperback)
I bought this book in late 2007( as a newbie to PS) and it laid dormant for several months. Now I have got into it and I would have to say its a very good book, well structured with good techniques that are all chaptered appropriately and progressively, also the accompanying CD is very effective and helpful. Now if you want a beginners book that explains all the tools and holds your hands through the tasks this book may disappoint. However, if you want a book that teaches you good techniques in a way that encourages your understanding and creativity then this is the book for you. Also the how to cheat bit, is a bit misleading and is more appropriate to other books that hold your hand through every part of the task, This books guides you, eg use this tool and this effect, but the tasks require you to think and problem solve, which actually makes you understand the software and is more rewarding, as opposed to the parrot understanding that you can develop with other books.
