I have also purchased Photoshop CS5 in Easy Steps: and found this much more user friendly and easier to understand.
People going to photoshop have issues. The most important thing is an index of all these where you can quickly find out what you need.
NOBODY reads this kind of tome from end to end. We all have better things to do and to read. It would take a year to get through all this mush.
I used photoshop elements 2 (2002). It cost very little and I could do many things with it. This monstrosity is actually far less valuable to me than the software I used to have. Now I cannot do anything at all.
The people writing these books have no idea whatever about how to write for the people who just might need them.
You would think that things would get better. They do not!
All these books need to be written from a different point of view: HOW DO I DO THIS?
Eg I wanted to insert arrows in a map I made. To do it professionally I needed the shape. Three are available but they all point in one direction. Question: How do I get them to point in the direction I want. ALWAYS THE REASON FOR THE ARROW IN THE FIRST PLACE!! The book told me nothing. The index of the book told me nothing. I had to ask someone who happened to know. 'Get the free transform and use that, ' he said. That one comment was worth the entire book to me.
This book is for all levels not just amateurs
