From the Inside Flap
This book is perfect for graphic, web, interactive designers, and introductory photographers but may not be the book for you if you are just looking for new features. If you are just starting out with Photoshop, then every feature is new, and you will want to see how they fit into a successful workflow.
If you're a new user looking to get started, or have been self-taught, or are looking for a broad survey of everything that is possible with Photoshop, then the Digital Classroom is a good choice. After teaching Photoshop to thousands of people at American Graphics Institute, I've discovered that even long-time users who are self-taught can benefit from coverage of fundamentals. The step-by-step instructions, the lesson files and the videos on the included DVD are helpful for those starting out with Photoshop. Have fun discovering!
