This book does, brilliantly, exactly what it says on the tin: if you're a photographer who's familiar with Lightroom but curious about and/or intimidated by Photoshop, Kelby gives you exactly what you need, in a straightforward, easy-to-follow manner. Layers, masks, adjustment layers, smart objects: Photoshop concepts are introduced by showing them in use rather than trying to explain them, which just works. (The same goes for the photographic techniques involved.) By not pretending to comprehensiveness, the book cuts through Photoshop's notoriously labyrinthine interface; it avoids lengthy preliminaries in favour of immediate, and immediately useful, results.

This isn't a complete course in Photoshop, even for photographers. But it will get you over the hump.

Well written book of sensible length and size, can be read in bed. Best bit is the final chapter which tells you what you don't need Photoshop for: which is most things if you are a photographer. If you thought you were good on Lightroom this book might also teach you a thing or two.

This is a great book which highlights a few key techniques in photoshop. It also gives detail of when you can actually bypass photoshop altogether and stay in lightroom. It's thin compared to Kelby's other books, but is cheaper and more focussed.

Typical Kelby style book. Answers those previously unanswered queriies with worked examples. This is not heavy going either, and gives just enough information to get your project complete. Most of the content is lifted from other Kelby books but he's filtered it down to the important stuff us LR users want to know.

Excellent book. As with everything that Scott Kelby writes there are things in there that are of use for beginners, improvers and advanced workers.
