Amazon Review

If reading through nearly 1,000 pages of Photoshop tools, tricks, tips and errata is your idea of a good time, Photoshop 6 for Windows Bible is the book to get. Packed with everything a new user needs to know about the leading image-editing application, this book has much to offer and only a few drawbacks.

Five main sections run the gamut from an introduction to the application and interface to basic and sophisticated painting, masking, layering, and text techniques. One of the most important sections is saved for last: "Colour for Print and the Web". Colour management and calibration for different output systems is never easy, but understanding how and why colour is handled in Photoshop and for different systems will go a long way toward helping you become a real master.

A favourite feature, and one seen far too little, is a complete version of the book in .pdf format on the accompanying CD-ROM. It has no colour images, and items in the index and table of contents are not clickable, but it makes for far easier searching when you're looking for a specific command or phrase. The CD-ROM also contains four bonus chapters, third-party plug-in demos, 48 high-resolution stock photos, and a large, full-colour gallery of artwork from 16 Photoshop artists.

The book itself is clearly written and cleanly formatted, but though there are plenty of screen shots, none of them appear in colour. This is disappointing in light of the fact that the book is all about a colour image-editing application. The 32-page colour gallery and the wealth of colour images on the CD-ROM make up for this somewhat, however.

If you've never bought a Photoshop book and you've just moved up to Photoshop 6, this book makes a handy reference and source of inspiration. Packed with more information than most users will probably need, Photoshop 6 for Windows Bible makes an excellent Photoshop companion. --Mike Caputo

Review

You′re probably thinking that if someone has the gall to call his book a Bible, it had better be pretty good. If you′re not thinking that, it′s probably because you′ve already experienced the Photoshop Bible and you know it′s good. —Los Angeles Times

I am an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop 5 & 6. I really recommend this book, not because it is such fun reading it, but because there are lots and lots of useful information! As a pro I need to be up front in knowledge. I use this book for sparetime-reading - just to learn more - and as a reference if I encounter a problem that needs fast solving.

I bought this because the P3 version was so good
Its exactly the same even to the illustrations.
Only difference is in the new features.So if you
have Bibles from earlier versions of Photoshop
don't bother!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Photoshop guide. 23 Dec. 2007
By C. Countess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Anyone attempting to use Photoshop, especially first timers like me, probably discovers two things: (1) Photoshop is vast in its' capabilities, and (2)You may need someone to guide you through this excellent but complex program. Mr. McClelland's book is very readable and easy to understand, often funny, highly detailed, and very helpful. I have not yet mastered Photoshop, and I don't know if I ever will, but this book has been more than helpful. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, But Not Perfect 22 Jun. 2001
By R. Lade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Let me start by saying that I never buy one of these books to read it. Let's face it, any of this stuff is pretty dry. I use them for reference. Even though I do professional photography and spend a lot of time in Photoshop, I don't know it all. That would be a tall order.
I do feel though that Deke does a good job of fully explaining many of the most usefull tools in PS6. The more obscure ones, I'm not sure that any book covers to any great extent. One has to get inside this program and look around. No book on PS6 is going to hold your hand through the whole thing. One area in this book that gets a lot of attention because it can be confusing is unsharp mask. There's a lot of detail here on how to use it. It's really the only sharpening tool you'll ever need if it's used correctly. Another area that can be difficult is selections....lots of detail here, too.
A nice thing about this book in my opinion is Deke McClelland's writing style. He does try to liven it up a bit. Not always sucessfully, but it keeps it a bit more interesting.
My bottom line to this book is that I believe it's worth the investment. If you're applying Photoshop solely to Photography, I think that "Adobe Photoshop 6.0 for Photographers" by Martin Evening may be the better way to go.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating how-to on Photoshop 24 April 2007
By Allan Ostermann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have two books on Photoshop. One is Inside Photoshop 5.5. It is somewhat entertaining (which is a bonus) and educational in a good way. What do I mean? It gives hands on tasks so you learn by doing (kinda like those ads for Devry Technical Institute). His explanations are short and right to the point. And almost every step seems to have a picture.

Now let's take this book. I'd like to use an example from an area I find difficult to understand; creating masks.He's walking you through creating a mask of a dinosaur skull (yuck). Anyway, in Step 2 he tells you to do this and that to delete the background. Then he states, "4. I painted inside the selection mask." Then he says that "Before I begin I do" such and such. In Step 5 he's applying a paintbrush to the edge of the image. Here's the problem. HE NEVER TELLS YOU HOW TO CREATE THE MASK. All of a sudden he's working on the mask, but how did he get there?

This is a big problem. A user manual should include all of the steps. That's not a minor complaint. Buy the other book, that is if there is a you, and I'm not the last person on earth using Photoshop 6!
