I have Scott Kelby's Photoshop CS6 book & Lightroom book. I love the humor, the easy to follow (& practical) information, & his ability to excite your imagination beyond what he has done for you. This helped me with cutting down my portrait retouching time.

Scott Kelby's books are awesome. This is the 4th book of his I have purchased.

This book is not going to get into the details of every little capability in Adobe Photoshop. This book will give you the ability to retouch the portraits you take with your digital camera - it cuts right to the chase. You can make an untouched photo look presentable in 10-15 minutes using the techniques in this book.

If you want to know how to soften skin, whiten teeth, remove blemishes, add sparkle and life to eyes, add digital "make-up," remove stubble, sculpt eyebrows, etc., this is the book to get. Simply scan through the table of contents to find the retouch topic you need, fire up Photoshop, open your digital photo, and follow the step-by-step instructions. There are tons of pictures and Mr. Kelby's writing style is easy to follow - he manages to make things easy without talking down to his readers.

Scott Kelby makes it super-easy to make your portraits look great. I used Mr. Kelby's books for Photoshop Elements, and when I stepped up to the full-blown Photoshop, there was no doubt that I would be turning to him for assistance with my photos. I have NEVER been stumped by any of his instructions.

Using Mr. Kelby's books I have: whitened teeth, enlarged eyes, adjusted the whites of eyes, removed blemishes, cleaned up eyebrows, changed eye colors, added lip color, softened skin, learned how to add vignette to portraits, added sparkle to eyes, etc. For a bumbling amateur such as myself, Mr. Kelby's books are must-haves, to be sure!

As a bonus, Mr. Kelby's website has all the photos used in the book so his readers can download the photos and follow along in the book while learning all the techniques by actually using Photoshop. This is an awesome feature!

Gives simple explanations and concrete tutorials of how to accomplish the techniques in the book. Photoshop is an enormous and complicated program. Books on photoshop will explain how to open various features and what they do (at least in abstract). This book show you how to do "things" with it
