Knowledge is Power!,
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS3 One-on-One (Paperback)
This book is awesome if you're new, or have limited experience, with Photoshop.
Deke is a very articulate teacher, and that's evident throughout the pages of this book. He's created some amazing stuff over the years (both books and videos) and this is no exception. Tackling Photoshop features, tools and commands on a chapter by chapter basis - Deke does a great job of explaining how they work, and when you would use them. The book also comes with nearly 3 hours of video training (like his lynda.com stuff) that really draws everything together.
I'd highly recommend this book to anybody wanting to learn Photoshop from the ground up, I've always believed you should learn the tools and commands before engaging in all the tips, tricks and techniques that accompany them. Reading this book is the best way of doing that!
