"A true masterpiece." ―John Nemerovski, Pixiq.com
"To me Adobe Photoshop CS6 For Photographers is still just about the most important reference book I have. It covers every aspect of Photoshop in detail and presents them with an eye toward the photographer. It is written by a professional photographer for professional photographers. It covers both the Mac and Windows in a clear and concise manner. For intermediate and advanced Photoshop users, it is the definitive word on Photoshop. For the beginner, along with other sources for additional foundation, it will make you that advanced user. For anyone who is serious about photography and Photoshop,Adobe Photoshop CS6 For Photographers is a must have." ―T. Michael Testi, BlogCritics.org

Rather than detail the content (which you can see from the helpful "Look Inside" feature), it might be more helpful to compare three of the most widely used of the myriad of Photoshop user guides that are on the market - Photoshop CS6 For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers)), The Adobe Photoshop CS6 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices That Matter) and Martin Evening's Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Photographers.
The Dummies book is best for those completely new to Adobe Photoshop and indeed to image processing software. Unlike the other two, it is more general and so includes more on the creative art or design elements of the software. It's well organized, logical and clear. While none of the three books come with a CD of photos, the Dummies is the only one not to provide web-based images that you can work on along with the book.Read more ›
As always, Adobe tends to change a few methods, moves things from one section of the menu to another, adds a few features and plays around with the interface every time there is a new release. CS6 is no different in those respects and there are more changes to the interface than has been seen for some time, in addition to the other changes. CS6 is smoother, cleaner and faster than before and should provide a better user experience, once its changes from CS5 have been absorbed.
This book has been partly rewritten to reflect those changes, illustrations have been changed and some minor errors corrected. Martin Evening is a technical author whose books are not unduly difficult to read and this is one that is definitely worthy of consideration for the shelf. As it is currently available, and some of the usual competition (from Scott Kelby etc) has yet to arrive in the shops, you may want to add this to your collection now rather than wait weeks or months for the alternatives to arrive.
This is written primarily for the photographer and consequently there are elements of Photoshop, primarily the vector tools borrowed from Adobe Illustrator, much of the web-related content borrowed from Dreamweaver etc and some other portions that are partly or wholly ignored as they are less likely to be used in the context of photo-editing or manipulation. If you want a more all-round look at Photoshop, there are other better suited titles available (although perhaps not yet expressly for CS6)
An updated Photoshop classic, one of the best and most comprehensive available for photographers.
There is a link to additional material on the internet once you enter the code shown in the book, I had a slight problem with this and e-mailed Martin who responded within 24 hours.
The book is well laid out and most people will use it as a reference book rather than reading it cover to cover but the first few chapters are essential reading as they deal with setting up Photoshop for your individual needs and how to get the best out of the program.
It is important to note this book is for photographers and there are a number of areas in CS6 it does not cover such as the 3D facilities or Video.
For photographers it's an excellent book, even more so at the price Amazon is selling it for.
Buy it ! You will not be disappointed.

An excellent in depth book on Photoshop. However, if you are thinking to buy the Kindle version don't bother. You'll most likely end up buying the actual book. Read morePublished 11 months ago by I Say Old Chap!
I studied Photoshop on CS4. This is a very good back-up book to brush up on features that you don't normally use and discover new features.
