Format: Paperback
This book covers everything you need, not only to get started, but to keep going. The excercises are well-presented and refer to files available on the CD-ROM.
The authors' style is witty without going overboard (like the "Dummies" series). The arrangement of the lessons provides an interesting departure from the predictable. Also the writers present working studio methods as well as basic techniques.
The section which most characterizes the consideration the authors show for their readers is the depth coverage of the "preferences" menu items to personalize Photoshop. This occurs early but not before we have had a chance to play with the tools a bit.
I have found this quite a useful book for learning Photoshop.

I have been disappointed in 3rd party books in the past as they have been either to technical or just a rehash of the softwares manuals. Not with this book. Once you start using this execellent resource you will find that the author is not only passionate about photoshop but also passionate about delivering the sorts of techniques most of us want to know.Best suited for beginners and intermediates, the example tutorials are excellent in their ease of instruction and are easily adaptable to any creative experimentation. You won't regret buying this book and it certainly won't be collecting dust on the bookshelf.

I purchased this book over Adobe's own info book in part due to reviews I read here on the Amazon website. I would like to add some pertinent comments to other reviews: For a software program that is primarily used on the Power Macintosh operating system, the presentation of Windows95 oriented commands followed by mac commands in () is very annoying. In fact more than annoying, I would recommend the purchase of the Adobe/mac info book for all Mac users.!!!! Many of the examples off the CDs are run using mostly shortcuts (a very windoz method). Not all of them are related back to the menu in detail and some I didn't find at all. Another annoying thing is that the entire list of shortcuts for the program isn't included, one is directed back to Adobe's own documentation (see pg22). Some advanced methods in the book actually apply to files started with other programs ex: POSER, although the example files are on the CD. Animation and Website construction are covered in detail. I found the chapters on scanning and image resolution helpful.

First,a comment about the first reviewer on the list, the viewer from New york who rated it "Horrible". Look sharply Sir, you have rated the wrong book. This book is not the PhotoShop 4 "WOW" book! I did not purchase the book but I did look it over thouroughly and I found it to be well organized,consise and complete especially for entry level. The only reason I diden't buy it is because I have six other books on Photoshop4 and I have just upgraded to Photoshop version 5.0. As far as the CD is concerned,I didn't have the option to try the tutorial CD. But I have had trouble with tutorial CD's in the recent past because some CD tutorials work in conjunction with specific Browsers (offline)in order to bring up the tutorials. I could not get my "Photoshop5 Certification Guide" CD to operate propery until I upgraded my browser to IE 5.0. Try E-mailing the publisher, I found that they can somtimes resolve the problem.

Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding book which introduces the Photoshop user to most of the essential concepts through a series of tutorials based on images on the included CD-ROM. And although it is suitable for the novice, it provides much more than an introduction. One example of this is that it shows you multiple ways of accomplishing something at various points throughout the book. I was continually impressed by Photoshop's depth as I discovered layer after layer (pun intended!) of features. Another important point is that these tutorials illustrate real-world techniques and projects that end with a result that you might have been proud of if you had done it all on your own. I would also point out that the tutorials were accurate and correct, unlike some I have used for other products. In other words, the text agreed with what Photoshop's menus, etc. were doing and it agreed with the contents of their CD-ROM.

Format: Hardcover
This is a powerful and challenging book. This is an excellent book for both beginning and advanced users of Adobe's Photoshop 4.0. Although the publishers stated user level is accomplished to advanced, I believe that even novice users will find this book as useful as advanced users. The book assumes a basic understanding of Photoshop, and quickly progresses into advanced techniques, tips, final effects and editing methods. Another benefit and bonus to this book are the two accompanying CD's. These have some of the best supporting material that is expertly incorporated into the book as examples, as well as providing stock images and textures to manipulate and experiment with. A drawback to this book is that at times it can be verbose, however, the authors do a very good job of reducing complex processes into simplified ones.

i bought all three books of the "inside 3d max" series a while ago and was pleased with the in-depth coverage. i thought i couldn't go wrong with "inside photoshop 4". i was right. i thought i know a lot of photoshop as i use it in my day to day work. the graphics used for the exercises in this book are partially eye insulting ugly. but the technical content is unbeatable. the exercises forced me to continuously use keyboard shortcuts i never heard of before. yes, i have to admit to having used only 50% of the new power photoshop 4 offers. i never used the clever alt+shift+f and ctrl+shift+f commands. i never used the new layer modes before. this book is a big time-saver and will extent my lunch break substantially :-) ps: could we get a german edition of the entire "inside" book line?
