The book itself is laid out in easy-to-use topics or units giving a guide to topics such as Getting to know the User Interface of the software, Layers, Basic Photo Corrections and Advanced Compositing. Each unit is very easy to follow and the supplied passcode for digitally downloading the lesson files from Peachpit Press really adds substance and reassurance to the lessons. You can really see how you are progressing and the lesson files include examples of what your finished workflow should look like. (I found this extremely useful and reassuring). One of the benefits of the Peachpit downloads is that you can check back from time-to-time and any amendments to the book or lesson files are provided free of charge, as well as the lessons being available to re-download. (Just in case you accidentally delete any).
If there is one downside to this book it is that Adobe constantly update their software if you have a Photography plan via the Creative Cloud. Although this is a good thing to have new features, sometimes this can mean you may have to do a little searching to find the feature you are looking for when following the lessons. The feature will however be there and will just need finding. (The search/help feature will help here). One section that I did find difficult to follow was the 'Working with 3D Images'. This takes some getting used to and I need to return to it when I had a bit more experience of using Photoshop. This however, would certainly not put me off buying any other 'Classroom in a Book' series publications, as overall it was excellent and I felt I learnt so much from this book. I no longer feel that I am tinkering with the software but certainly feel like an intermediate user.Adobe Photoshop CC Classroom in a Book (Classroom in a Book (Adobe))
One point of causion for those planning to buy this technical books but are not tooo technically enlightened is that because the softwares are now CC ((Creative Cloud), updates are in the cloud and so most of the time if you want to follow the instructions in the book, you will find out that they are or have been obselet or moved to another location.
So be prepared to find that this good book for example is out of date for about a year. There had been at least two major updates since its release BUT BUT if you want to do design and there need this book then you must be able to scrutinise and navigate your way.
In depth coverage of all of the aspects of this vast programme, that you can complete at your leisure. Be warned, time will disappear once you open the cover!!
