it was bought as a present. the recipient has not complained. so i guess the book has served its purpose.Published 13 months ago by Peter Gaskin
often uses 10 words when 2 will do. It is simplified and easier than most guides to understand, but I just need to know how to do it, not why whys and wherefores.Published 16 months ago by Desert Dave
I don't think this is helpful perhaps if there were software instructions along with the book but just
the book didn't work.
Had for a while but haven't had the time to "play" with any things Photoshop yet. All the Dummies books are good, so will assume this is also, therefore the 4 stars.Published on December 20, 2012 by Mstery16
