Excellent lay out and reasonably easy to understand but you may still struggle as I have done to get your head around this massive Photoshop software. There is no simple route, just perseverance. In fact I would suggest that if you have no working knowledge whatsoever of Photoshop you may find it necessary to undertake some form of live or on line starter course if one is available. The book would then be of great help in your further progress.

I absolutely love this book! Why? Because it explains, step-by-step, in simple terms, how to use Photoshop to make your photos better. There is no in-depth technical detail given as to the whys and wherefores, it's just packed full of real-world examples (how to resize, removal of red-eye, sharpening, enhancing, and many many more great tips). Each example only covers a couple of pages (a few cover 3-4 pages) and shows the before and after photos. It's a fab reference book, something you will find invaluable when you ask yourself 'how do i do that in photoshop?'. If only the book was pocket sized so I could take it everywhere with me! Highly recommended!

I bought this years ago. I have since bought the CS6 book. PhotoShop is a steep learning curve
but Scott Kelby's books explain everything in clear detail.

The book is written clearly, with plenty of screenshots showing each step of the transformation for each example.
The examples range from quite simple colour replacement and straightening of pictures to potentially complex tasks such as changing a frown to a smile and actually altering physical features of a portrait.
As an inexperienced user of the software I recommend this book highly for learning a large number of aspects relating to photo editing.

Having already bought the 'Photoshop CS for Dummies' book, (which was still too complicated for my clearly tiny brain to understand!) I decided that this sounded more like what I was after.
The book is divided into different sections for different areas of photo editing (enhancing colour, fixing problems caused by flash, special effects, etc) and gives step by step instructions and screenshots for every scenario. It is easy to follow, logical, and clear. You are pre-warned when something is going to be a bit more complicated or time consuming by the presence of the 'for Pro's only' logo at the start of the tutorial!
All in all, I am extremely pleased with this book, and if what you are looking for are no nonsense step-by-step tutorials which will help you make your photos look better then you will be too!

Scott Kelby's books generally give quite good clear instructions on most of the basic applications of the software. Probably some of the most useful books on picture editing software if you can get past the American idioms.

A friend recommended this book to me, I can't thank him enough.
This book really is an essential buy for anyone who wants to know how to edit images. It doesn't bother to fill pages with such things as; this is a computer, this a digital camera etc.
It just gets stuck in with meaningful steps and dialog. Screen shots accompany the steps which help you to find your way.
It's written in very down to earth manner, with a bit of humour thrown in where needed.
