In the world of high powered learning tools for Photoshop, the Adobe Photoshop CC Classroom in a Book has to be the kinder and gentler side of the race to educate the world in this subject. Obviously this is a book for beginners in Photoshop CC. Different than most other publications of this nature, it does not try to cram pages full of information into the confused mind of the Photoshop CC rookie. Instead, the authors (the Adobe Photoshop product experts) follow that old Chinese proverb, “Tell me and I’ll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll learn.” And involve you they will. The book (in fact all books in this series) is built on the premise that you, the reader, are just like any other student in a classroom. There are 14 sections to this book and the reader downloads 14 lesson files onto his/her computer, one for each section. Then the text takes the reader on a journey through Photoshop CC using the book text and the downloaded lesson files to cover all of the salient points of the subject at hand. Thus the reader (student) is using the same processes and strokes on his/her computer that the book is illustrating. Hence, the portion of the proverb that states, “Involve me and I’ll learn’ is being truly followed.

The manner in which the text is presented in the book also is calculated to foster learning at a reasoned pace. The steps to be followed are not jammed together but, rather, nicely physically spaced apart so that the student is not overwhelmed by an avalanche of instruction and information. This is the kinder and gentler side alluded to previously. The instruction given is well illustrated. The student is not left floundering wondering where or what to do next. All instructions and information are presented in simple, easy to understand language.

The Adobe courseware is always great, and this version is no exception. If you buy the Kindle version (like I did), make sure you go to the BACK of the book first to find your download information for the lessons from Peachtree. It's not too obvious if you just jump in and start reading.

We're not new to Classroom in a Book (CIB). To the best of our knowledge, this is our 97th in the 16 years of the series. We go back to one of the very first, the Photoshop 4 edition of the one we are reviewing here. That's when everything you needed to know about becoming an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) could be contained between the covers of one volume.

Illustrator was Adobe's first app, going back to 1987, followed by Photoshop, as Adobe's second app. Like Photoshop, the majority of the core apps in the Creative Cloud (CC) collection are in or about to be in the double digits of version numbering. We go back to one of the first copies of Photoshop 2.0 that Adobe ever shipped. Today, our studio uses just about every desktop app that CC offers.

To temper this review with even more candor, we're not strangers to the people at Adobe. We're Adobe Community Professionals (ACP). That's how this book's Art Director, Andrew Faulkner, and Designer, Elaine Gruenke, contacted Janet about including another one of her Photoshop paintings on page 308. The only way we know the name of the book's author, Brie Gyncild, is because it appears on page 390. Brie also writes another of the CIB's, After Effects.

That said, we have not always been complementary of previous CIB editions, especially the ones Brie writes. We've been educating creative professionals since 1981 and have authored 3 books, ourselves. When it comes to reviewing the work of other educators, for this business, we're tough customers. And, like many ACPs, we explore just about all significant educational materials for our industry.

We write these reviews as we go, so these things are more like a journal of ours. At this point, we have no idea what we'll think of it until we get to the finish line.

This book is a good introduction on Photoshop CC. For experienced users it gives a fine introduction to the new tools and how to use them. The beginners can learn the interface and how to use the most important tools. I think it is a pity the Adobe team did not write about how to interpret a histogram, how to create a workflow and how te determine the differences between different tools that can do the same job, for example Shadow - Highlight and Levels. Nevertheless it is a good book to understand and learn Photoshop.

I have used the Adobe Classroom in a Book for most Adobe software applications purchased over the years. I think my first CIAB went all the way back to PageMaker.

To me, ACIB is the most thorough material I know of for mastering the accompanying application.

I would recommend this book for both those new to Photoshop, and also for those who need to be brought up to date on features in newer versions. A lot has changed since Photoshop CS4. There are powerful new features, some of which have a learning curve, worthy of upgrading not only the software but also the education to go with it.

I'm actually enjoying the lessons. I was somewhat familiar PS Elements and decided to take it to the next level with CC Photoshop. I like the kindle version because It makes it easy to have my iPad set up next to my computer for reference. I think that even if you're new to PS this book is easy enough to use.
