Format: Paperback
Plenty of Photoshop CS3 books on the market update information to this latest Photoshop release, but few offer an extensive desk reference packing in the latest tools and techniques of the latest program with easy details on how to do everything from simple adjustments such as specifying size to using layering and blending modes for advanced compositions and refinement. From full color screen shots and color examples of modified photos to techniques and strategies, Photoshop CS3 All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies is one of the most extensive coverages on the market - and a perfect pick for any who find detailed Photoshop coverages confusing.

If you are like me -- an intelligent (I hope) experienced computer person who has never used Photoshop but wants to learn how to do useful work (not just play around) -- this book is for you. For example, you can actually look in the index and find what you are looking for.

I liked "Photoshop CS3 for Dummies" as a good overview text - then I use this "Photoshop CS3 All-in-one Reference for Dummies" as a detailed text on most of the heavy features of Photoshop. I was pretty good with Photoshop CS and all the versions of the program before - but I am learning a GREAT deal from this tome on the more sophisticated features.

I purchased this book and I must be BEYOND a Dummy. I know nothing about P/S....As I paged through this book, there was an entry that caught my eye that instructed the reader to " the Function Bar"....I thought to myself WHERE'S THAT located??

I find many of these "how to" books ASSUME the reader KNOWS basic information and too often people like me have NO IDEA where to even LOOK for the answers.....

So come on all you creative authors and instructors out there, write something that REALLY gets down to the complete basics....and make NO assumptions that your audience KNOWS at any level what you have forgotten

I got this book for my Wife, a copywritten photographer when she went from SLRs to Digital and said that Photo-Shop is great for anyone who wants to embelish their photos but would detract from the Natural photographer's creatrive eye.

This book provides more minute detail than I've seen in a Photoshop book at the price level of this one. I'm looking forward to moving throughout all the well documented chapters in expanding my Photoshop capabilities.
