A worthwhile investment,
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS3 for Photographers: A Professional Image Editor's Guide to the Creative use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC (Paperback)
I bought this on the strength of the author's book on Lightroom and wasn't disappointed. Its quite a heavy tome, but it is well organised and suitable for reading cover to cover, or as a reference book to dip in to. The author's style is clear, concise and very approachable, and he communicates his obvious knowledge and experience in a tone that gets the balance right between being unnecessarily flippant and over-serious. The step-by-step sections are very useful. The book is well-illustrated and the DVD provides all the exercise and sample files to accompany the text. My only (very) minor quibble is about the usefulness of the offers on sharpening software, etc.
