I would recommend it if you want to learn essentials and new techniques in CS3.
Having been given an old version of Photoshop I thought I would get this book to help me get the best of it. CS3 is a strong package but I have found it difficult to master. This book has put that right.
This is basically a users guide to Photoshop CS3. It takes you from very basic editing (simple cropping, brightness etc.) through to complex multi layer work. The exercises are easy to follow and each chapter can be covered in a few evenings.
It is well written with clear instructions and screen shots. The exercise pictures are on the accompanying DVD but it's not difficult to use the instructions on your own work.
We have the latest version of Photoshop at work and I cannot see much difference between this version and the one at work so I will continue on with CS3 as it does everything I want and this book is a gold mine of help and ideas.
A fair bit of criticism has to go to the amateur nature of the publisher as well. It doesn't help when headings all share the same style, so you can't tell sub-headings from sub-subheadings... and the use of pictures BEFORE the supporting text is utterly confusing. Some degree of consistency in showing before AND after images, just before, just after, small before image, small after image etc. are what the publisher should be sorting out. Also, just throwing the supporting images on a DVD with no direct link from those in the text is just plain lazy. Very amateur.
