Avoid the Kindle version if want to see the menus
on 21 December 2011
Having purchased previous books by Mr Kelby I thought this one for CS5 would be a worthwhile update. Not only are they generally an OK read (once you get used the waffle/humour found dotted around) but they make great reference books when you need to achieve specific things that you don't do regularly enough to remember.
So this one is on par with previous efforts, for CS5 virgins and intermediate users it has excellent content aimed squarely at photographers.
The reason for 1 star? I made dreadful a mistake and got the Kindle version for use on my iPad. While the text is easy to read and there are nice features like search (great for reference books, obviously) the graphics are very poor quality. The resolution at normal size matches the screen, so if you tap to zoom, the images go very pixelated and it means you can't properly see the menu items.
For me this makes it of little use as a reference book. You can work things out of course but it's not an enjoyable experience. The content is 5 star, delivery really lets this one down. Sorry Scott.
