Martin Evening's Adobe Photoshop for Photographers is established as one of the classic Photoshop reference works. With Adobe Photoshop CS5 Martin Evening continues to maintain this standard.

Adobe Photoshop is used by a range of professionals such as web designers and print designers as well as photographers. Many of the features in Photoshop are rarely, if ever needed for photo editing and this book focuses on Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw and Bridge for photo editing enabling a much deeper explanation of how to use a particular Photoshop technique than could be covered in a book aimed at all the Photoshop features. Most techniques are described in detail and provide an excellent understanding of how the technique works so you can apply them to your own photographs. Unfortunately, some features do not include this background understanding and are presented as a part of a recipe e.g. the blend if slider. This makes it more difficult to get to grips with these method.

There are 15 chapters in 746 pages covering:

Photoshop Fundamentals
Configuring Photoshop
Camera Raw Processing
Sharpening and Noise Reduction
Image Editing Essentials
Black and White
Extending the Dynamic Range
Image Retouching
Layers, Selections and Masking
Essential Filters for Photo Editing
Image Management
Color Management
Print Output
Output for the Web
Automating Photoshop

Everybody will have their own favourite new feature in CS5 and these are all covered in the book along with extensive information on existing features.

This book is very good but you need to know more than the basics of CS5 to go trough it.
The down side is that, that enclosed CD is no with all the photos that are shown as examples in the book.

Never the less I recommend this book to all who are searching for some advanced methods of photo editing.

I'd ideally like to split this review into two parts. The first is for those who did not own the CS4 version of Martin's book. If you fit snugly into this category then you can now sit back and heave a sigh of relief as your search for a great book on Photoshop CS5 with photographers in mind has come to an end - this is the one. Martin's knowledge of both Photoshop and photography are unsurpassable. A very successful London based photographer in his own right he demonstrates with great verbosity and clarity those post-processing techniques which have served him well. No stone is left unturned and this book is the best reference for CS5 you can find on the market. I recommend it without hesitation.

For those of you who owned the CS4 version of this book and are wondering whether to fork out on the CS5 version I would say that this should be carefully considered. Of the almost 750 pages in the book I would say a significant proportion of those are the same or have only very minor changes. Most of the photos are the same which is a shame as I think there's benefit showing different examples of the same technique even if the textual accompaniment does transgress from book to book - this is what Scott Kelby does and it works. Martin does of course cover the new features within CS5 to the level of detail we have come to expect from him, but it's a big ask to pay the full retail price for this book just for that information especially considering there are plenty of video tutorials emerging on the web (AdobeTV is a good place to start). These would perhaps be a better option to cover the delta.

In short I would say that this book is definite buy for those who did not own the CS4 version and a possible buy for those that did (read my second paragraph and decide for yourself). I should just clarify that if you have the CS3 or earlier versions of Martin's book then this is still a definite buy.

I am one of millions who HATE manuals and I am sure you do too so can you imagine what it feels like to actually be excited by one?

From the beginning of the first chapter I was quickly learning really useful as well as fun things to do with PhotoShop and then later with Bridge and Camera Raw. The book id very well designed and laid out, the overall impression is of a book written and designed by someone who understands every aspect of his subject and knows how to communicate that knowledge both visually and verbally. Martin Evening explains things in such a simple and straightforward way that it is remarkably easy to follow every thing he says. So much so that I am not only learning how to use CS5 more fully but I am also learning how to be a better technical photographer with my new digital camera equipment and I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years.

There are just two things I don;t like about the book, one being the DVD. It has only a few videos on it and incidentally you can see these on YouTube. As good as these are the DVD adds nothing to the book and makes me wonder if it was felt necessary to have a DVD simply because that is the thing to do. The other problem is that the book is thick and very heavy. It has to be of course because it covers so much ground in very great detail but when you start reading and learning so easily you forgive it for that.
