While I've used Photoshop for quite a few years (starting with a 0.97 beta, about a year before release of the first commercial version), there are always things to learn. Now with CS6, there are so many new features and changes to old ones I wanted a book to help with the transition.

Over the years, I've switched between the Missing Manual and the Bible series of books for basic info, and I have a copy of the CS5.5 Missing Manual for Photoshop. This time I went with the Photoshop CS6 Bible and find it a great resource. The Missing Manual books are good, but seem to miss specific features and help when trying to accomplish a specific task. This new edition of the Bible covers all the big bases and everything in between, very exhaustive. It won't teach you how to use Photoshop if you're a new user, but for anyone with a basic understanding of the software, it's an excellent reference, and very up to date.

I'm a bit surprised at Amazon's price on this book, however. I was able to order it from another large online bookshop for only $18.90 including 3-day delivery, and it arrived before my copy of PS 6 even arrived.

This book is not nearly as good as the Photoshop CS6 Missing Manual. The biggest fault is the illustrations. This book uses black and white graphics to illustrate before and after adjustments and edits of COLOR images. The illustrations are basically useless. That's right. All but a small section of the graphics in this 1100+ page book are black and white. The verbal descriptions in the text aren't much better. The Missing Manual is much more informative. Most of its illustrations are in color, i.e., all the illustrations describing color critical edits. It also has a better index and table of contents. The final fault with this book is that it's not Mac friendly. Other manuals offer keystrokes for both PCs and Macs. This one is PC centric.

I found "Adobe Photoshop CS6 BIBLE" to be even better than I had hoped it would be. It is a very thorough book, and is well illustrated. I have been learning a lot from it and I seriously doubt there will be much if anything I am wanting to know that it doesn't cover. I have already recommended the book to several of my friends who have also ordered it, and I will recommend it to anyone that wants a great tutorial and reference manual covering Photoshop CS6.

This is by far the best book about Photoshop that I have had the pleasure to read yet, bar none. Every aspect is covered and I think you'll discover things you did not even know. Everything is explained in plain easy to understand english, so you can try for yourself. Not only that, but this book goes deep - and bring's to light, all the hidden qualities of Photoshop, that makes this program so amazing. This is one of those books, you can't put down, once you start reading. In one word - Super!!!

Technically good but like all these manuals, too dense and hard to parse for occasional user that has specific questions of "how to". But, with time and patience gets everything working OK if you want to understand a basic technical approach to CS6 and use a book you can actually keep open and flip through.

It's kinda of hard to understand. In all fairnes it's so much to read and learn that I put the book down sometime ago and haven't picked it up since that time. I think the software itself can be overwheliming.

I have borrowed nearly the entire extensive collection of books on photography and editing software from our local library. My emphasis has been on self-help books on the Adobe Creative Suite, particularly Photoshop. Though I am using Adobe CC the Photoshop CS6 books are still fairly relevant..... except Adobe Photoshop CS6 Bible.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 Bible is by far the WORST book for showing examples and trying to learn new skills within Photoshop. Simply, for any textbook for learning new skills in software, especially when it involves graphic arts be sure to stick with full color references. I was not able to use CS6 Bible AT ALL and ended up so frustrated that I made a special trip to the library just to return the book. If you have the bandwidth, I highly recommend watching the Terry White videos available on Youtube. If not, seek out other books on Photoshop - almost any other text is FAR superior to CS6 Bible.
