I heartily recommend it and would be lost without it (and my final photographs look absolutely superb and indeed professional when printed out)
As someone who is new to this software and to digital photography manipulation in general, I found this book really helpful. It's a little bit cheesy in parts, especially the foreword to each section, but the core content is good. I certainly learnt a lot from it (and continue to do so). The only real issue is the quality of the photos (which is a shame, given the purpose of the book). Most example photos are next to useless. In one section they show a whole list of thumbnails which are supposed to show the application of different masks. Unfortunately they all look exactly the same.
Notwithstanding the above, the book is a useful reference for the software.
If you really want to get into improving your digital photos in so many ways, this is the book for you. I was delighted! And the book feels like quality as well.
Overall it does what it says on the tin... AND is far better than Corel's own book (supplied in the software-boxed set that I bought from them.
I am a keen user of Adobe CS3 and ACDC10, but like all programms, no one covers everything you want to do. This fills in many of the 'learning 'gaps, and makes it much easier to use.
There are several reviews of this book, mostly good, but a few, I would expect from 'professionals' that berate it.
IT IS GOOD and easy to understand.
My main comment though concerns the order and layout of the book. I am at a loss as to why chapters on making selections and developing layers proceed quick fixes and manual editing, which are much easier for a novice to understand. Furthermore the chapters on selections and layers could have been far more detailed and expanded to cover more examples.
In summary - a useful book, that covers a lot of ground, but in quite a haphazard way.

I bought this book primarily to learn how to insert portions of one photograph into another and after five days of reading I am still completely lost. Read morePublished on 13 Dec. 2009 by M. S. Rose

Gives a basic instructions but misses out a lot of stuff. Not much detail on levels or histograms. Nothing on Curves or using channels. Read morePublished on 24 Nov. 2009 by T. Price
