Learn by video has got to be the best way to learn Photoshop.
Well set out, easy to follow tutorials, allow you to master each facet of the Photoshop program as your time allows. The way you can be working in photoshop and still have a tutorial running makes practising what you are learning very easy.

I think it is great, value for money (don't get scammed by the numerous Photoshop learning videos on the net),and it is easy.
A great reference tool that you will come back to for years to come.
Buy it.
Andy

Overall, I am OK with the product. I have used Lightroom 4 for a while and am fairly proficient. When I decided to learn Photoshop, I decided to get training rather than the hard way. The instructor is good at times and just Ok at others. She makes NUMEROUS references to previous versions of Photoshop which would be OK, if I was a long-term user of the software. Also, starting about module 4, she moves very quickly at times - making it difficult to follow her. If you are not familiar with the process you will not be able to follow her. I found I needed to replay lessons several times just to figure out what she was clicking on (i.e. find her cursor). When I had to do that, I was no longer focused on the lesson and what I should be learning but just the cursor. If you do not know the drop downs and choices, you will not be able to follow her. I recommend this for the advanced beginner to intermediate user - NOT a beginner.

The video training is very wordy. The narrator simply adds way too much small talk. The woman narrator does not stick to a logical sequence. The video does not follow the logical order of the companion book.

Every time a new version of Photoshop comes out I either get a Learning Tutorial from Photoshop User or VTC and I've been doing this since Photoshop 4.0 (NOT Photoshop CS4). Those tutorials are good but in my opinion Adobe Photoshop CS6 Learn By Video is by far a better and easier way of learning Photoshop.

Kelly McCathran, the author of Learn By Video, teaches you in a nice easy and organized pace. The tips and shortcuts she brings out are tips I never knew existed in Photoshop. Extremely good for beginners, novices and even people that have been using Photoshop for years. For the price and what you get out of this DVD you can't go wrong.

I thought that the interface for this video was excellent. I use two monitors and can run the video on one monitor while having CS6 opened on the other where I simultaneoulsy do the exercises. The sample photos are provided on the DVD. For the very beginner this video training might be a little bit advanced. I am an experienced LR4 user so I was able to follow along pretty well. Some of the exercises deal more with grahic arts than photography, so be aware of this before your purchase. Overall, the presenter has a nice voice, is very knowledgeable, and provides good coverage of many facets of CS6. You can just do some things in CS6 that you can't do in LR4. CS6 is for advanced editing, in my opionion. I have been able to take my photography to the next level with CS6 and this training video. I still bought Scott Kelby's book which is a reference for when I get stuck. I do play some parts of the video several times to review and fully understand the concepts. Video learning is much faster than working from a book in my opinion. I am a satisfied customer.

It would be hard to imagine a video tutorial that is so simple and so complete in every respect. I certainly am a beginner so I have no idea if a Pro would be pleased but if you are trying to learn this complicated software you can't go wrong with this product.

I bought this specifically to learn how to manipulate layers. This book does talk about layers but I still feel uncomfortable and unsure about using them because I don't feel that I raised my knowledge of layers enough to be proficient. However I learn some other things that were very helpful and I do recommend it for people who a just starting out with PS6

I am a beginner in Photoshop. When video was purchased, I only knew how to crop and to adjust image quality. I have made a quantum leap in my knowledge of PS CS6 using Adobe Photoshop CS6 Learn by Video by Kelly McCathran. My main goal is to enhance and clean photographs and this video has taught me some excellent techniques. It lays out how to down load images direct from my SD card/camera into PS, how to use filters, the mini-bride, layers, cropping techniques that I was not aware, take out imperfections in faces, take out age lines and crows feet, remove unwanted objects, enhance colors....and I am only in chapter 3 (out of 12). Some techniques are too advanced for me (like working in 3D), however, what I have learned has been well worth the price and time. Much more efficient than trying to learn in You Tube. Highly recommended. [ASIN:0321840712 Adobe Photoshop CS6: Learn by Video: Core Training in Visual Communication].
