This book was very helpful in doing what it set out to do - teach photo retouching and restoration. I was very confident in recommending it. Kudos!
I'm anxiously looking forward to doing some more pictures when time allows. As a matter of fact, others have asked me to do some of their personal family photos.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in photo restoring.
That being said.
This book is quite a bit out dated. It will still give you the basics, like I said, but there are new, better, and easier ways to do things.
The bottom line: If you are new at this sort of thing and want to master the basics: go for it!
If you already know how to take red eye out of your pictures, this might be a bit too basic for you.
When you've only fooled around with photo editing, such as re-sizing or adding text, learning to use the software properly with a book like this is certainly helpful in the long run, and there's plenty of cheap used copies available. For fancier stuff, there's always youtube video tutorials.
Bottom Line.... I recommend it if you understand what you are getting and have adjusted your expectations.
