I'm not new to photography, but I'm fairly new to Photoshop...CS5 in particular. In the interest of quickly getting up-to-speed, I signed up a few weeks ago with an Adobe Certified Instructor to provide personal Photoshop mentoring to me on a once-a-week basis. To supplement these sessions, I also joined NAPP and have watched dozens of their video tutorials; Adobe TV, etc. At the same time, I also picked up another highly respected author's book on CS5 (lets call it the "me" book) to try and put things together. The videos have helped, but I must candidly say that I quickly got lost in complexities of the writing in the "me" book and found it quite frustrating to say the least! Thats not to say that the "me" book isn't well done, but it is clearly written for someone that has had a fair amount of Photoshop experience in the past. IMHO, it's just way too detailed for the neophite user.
Then WOW...fast forward to Scott's new book which arrived at my home earlier this week. What an amazing book this is indeed. BANG...just open up to any Chapter and there you have a very straightforward, concise, step-by-step tutorial to guide and fast-track even the most inexperienced user through the process of getting the very best results out of his or her images. Photoshop frustration has been replaced with Photoshop fun. Trust me, using this book is like having Scott looking over you shoulder as you go through his easy-to-follow methodology. Even the complete novice can process some amazing images the very first time through.
Without reservation, I highly recommend you BUY THIS BOOK!!! Thanks, Scott, I'm having an absolute blast.

Scott Kelby keeps writing great books about Photoshop and somehow he makes each new book about the newest release of Adobe Photoshop better than the last. This book is no exception. Whether you are brand new to Photoshop or have been using it since Photoshop 2.0, like I have, you can quickly pick up the book and in a matter of minutes put to use some new technique or learn a new and better (i.e. faster and simpler) way of doing things. If you are a Photoshop user this book is a must have reference to have by your side.

What make Kelby's writing so effective is that he clearly walks you through each step of the process with photos, menus and directions - including before and after photos. His discussion of Camera Raw both basic and advanced is especially useful. His chapter on B&W is awesome. (I'm a former photojournalist with a predilection for Black & White images). But the chapter I refer to over and over, is the common problems chapter. He covers all of the ways to help you improve common image problems - backlit, removing reflections, group photos, and many more. Also not to be missed is his Photoshop Killer Tips section at the end of each chapter. If you are a photographer and a Photoshop user you won't be disappointed with this book.

I'm a big fan of Scott's books--so clear, practical, and fun to look at. I loved his previous version for CS4. However, this book is virtually identical, with the exception of some material on CS5's excellent new features, such Content Aware Fill. But these are easy to learn from Adobe's online video tutorials. If you already have this book for CS4, there's no reason to get this version. But if you don't have the last edition, you're in for a treat. I heartily recommend it!

If you are a novice or relatively inexperienced Photoshop CS user, you will likely find this book to be quite informative and helpful. Unlike many programs, Photoshop CS is extremely complex and non-intuitive. Many Photoshop CS users feel they can educate themselves by simply exploring the program but this approach has limited upside potential for most. You will derive much more benefit and enjoyment from the Photoshop CS program with a formal tutorial approach such as in this book. There are frustrations, however: I found some of the diagrams lacking in detail. For example, the author will occasionally refer to icons or functions in the drop down menus without specifying their location. Some of the more complex tasks, such as smart object layering are grossly lacking in precise step-by-step details, or simply didn't work, even when followed exactly as specified in the book.

Format: Paperback
I love what is in this book, but I have marked it down significantly for what is NOT in this edition: Scott Kelby removed virtually all his tutorials on retouching portrait (people) photos - basically an entire chapter included in the last 3 editions of this book. Three years ago, this book included voluminous tips on portrait retouching like lessening acne, eye and skin retouching, wrinkle removal, and slimming down subjects. In his CS3 Book, this content was an entire Chapter - Chapter 9 with 41 pages of tutorials. ALL of this content is missing from the "new" edition. Why would Kelby do this? For the $$$: Kelby just published a new $49.99 book devoted to portrait retouching. I have no problem with the new book, I just think purchasers of this book got cheated out of a lot of useful content included in the last 3 editions of this book which were deleted to create demand for the new offering. Not cool.
