4.0 out of 5 stars CS6 for dummies - Adobe Photoshop, 15 Nov 2012
This review is from: Photoshop CS6 For Dummies (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a previous purchaser of several "Dummies" books I picked up the CS6 version because I knew that the layout, composition & delivery of information would be what I had previously been used to.

The content of the book is broken down in very easy to find & reference to segments with the five parts of the book divided into a total of 20 chapters and those chapters broken down even further by page number to make specific problems or areas of interest a doddle to get to.

Dotted through the book are various icons helping to highlight new aspects of this version of the software, tips & warnings & elements that should really be noted as they will occur throughout the book.

To pick the book up and start using CS6 from scratch would be quite daunting, but it is achievable as long as you have patience. This isn't because the book hampers the learning experience, but purely because the volume of information contained can be overwhelming. The book makes a fantastic job of imparting the knowledge, but in my opinion it works best alongside the software and a user who already has previous knowledge of a version of Photoshop.

The book is written in light hearted but professional way, punctuated occasionally with cartoons & humour that allows the learning process to occur without a hiccup !
