If you use Photoshop, at whatever level, this is a book which should never be out of arm's reach.. Even if you have vast experience with the program, there will always be that moment when you can't remember which setting does what or why the function you just used didn't perform in the way you expected it would..

As the title suggests, this is an index of Photoshop in visual form. Everything is broken down and listed alphabetically so if you're looking for information on Motion Blur, for instance; you'll find it under M rather than B. Each entry has a heading giving information on which version of Photoshop (CS2 features are highlighted) it's applicable to as well as where it can be accessed from and its keyboard shortcut if it has one. There is also dictionary style 'see also' reference to associated functions. This is followed by a description of both what it does and how it's used as well as an example image. There are expert tips scattered throughout and a list of time-saving keyboard shortcuts at the end.

The text is well written and to the point. On the whole, the layout is good. There are a few places where descriptions and examples jump across columns which can cause a little confusion as to where one ends and the other begins. Some of the examples are a little small to see what the outcome is but these are just small aesthetic niggles.

Highly recommended.

As a photo retoucher I am always on the look out for books on photoshop, and this fit what I and looking for and what it contain, as well as a great price.

the book is a great reference that once read can be picked up randomly at any time in the future for a refresher on the tools used.
