5.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use for the 'Adobe Idiot' like me. ;) January 13, 2012
My teacher for Illustrator and Photoshop reasons that you can't like one program better than the other. I agree with him... personally, I hate both equally. BUT, it seems computers are a necessary evil in the fashion design world now, so I selected the first edition of this book from my school library. YAY! Very easy to follow instructions and a few 'cheats' that we weren't taught in our class. Doesn't speak 'computer-ese', uses everyday english to teach. I'm ordering the new version to keep on hand in case I ever need it for my further forays into fashion design.
