5.0 out of 5 stars Hacking Photoshop CS2 By Shangara Singh, October 28, 2005
This review is from: Hacking Photoshop CS2 (ExtremeTech) (Paperback)
This is not a tutorial book that you follow along with step by step. This book is for Photoshop users who have previuos knowledge of Photoshop and wish to get more out of the program.

It shows different ways that you can perform the same task in Photoshop.

The book has 18 chapters in full colour throught, tips, tricks, modifications and getting the most out of Photoshop CS2.

THIS BOOK DOESN"T WASTE TIME

Throughout the book you will see headings such as CAUTION, NOTES, TIPS and CROSS - REFERENCE

All these give you valuable input.

There's also a companion Website for the book which has links to other Website's for tutorials, scripts, coloour management, plug-in's,

keyboard shortcut's, etc..... Well worth a look.

You will also find URL's in the book, but be careful the URL's seem to get lost in the page, I would have liked to see the URL's in bold and in another colour, to make them standout.

The book shows you how to custmize appearance and optimize performance in Photoshop for a better and faster work flow.

Cool tricks with camera raw, masks, paths, layers and much more. 400 plus pages full of very good information. A great chapter is chapter 4 - Browsing with Bridge, this is new to the Adobe Creative suit 2. It would be hard to pick a favorite chapter, but chapter 15 - Automating Task and Chapter 16 - Outputting to print come close.

Conclusion: This is an excellent book, well written and laid out, plenty of diagram images that are clear and easy to see.

It doesn't come with a CD, but then again you don't need one.

I give this book Five (5) out of Five (5)
