Not exactly for Dummies
on 13 November 2008
I bought this as I have little or no knowedge of post processing. I have fiddled with photoshop before and was looking for a book that would tell me how I could do what I wanted. This does not do that at all.
For example - I was looking at how to open a layer - I would like a book, with screen shots saying press here and open this. This book does not operate in this way.
There is lots of info, but no step by step guides on how to undertake the most basic post processing before you step up to the more difficult tasks.
If you want a real guide, then don't waste your money. I am sure that this book has a purpose, but it certainly isn't aimed at total newbies to CS3 unlike the title, which would suggest it is.
All in all, a total disappointment that for me does not do what the title suggests. Wish I'd never wasted my monet to be honest.
