I learned a lot of things I was unaware of while looking for the things I was really interested in knowing, which was really a plus. I recommend this book for he reasons stated above.
Incidentally, Photoshop CS6 is very expensive and in my estimation well worth it. If you are a student, teacher or a person upgrading from CS5 then look for the discounted price. Also I use Adobe Light Room far more than I use Photoshop so if you are on a budget consider Light Room as a fist choice. I would buy a book to learn about those features as well. Light Room is a very powerful application that you will love whether you are a professional or a point and shooter.
As of right now Photoshop CS6 is the newest model of Photoshop. What is Photoshop? Photoshop is a computer software that lets you edit photos that you have taken. You can also create new things like logos etc.. This book by the way does not contain the software.... It is just a guide.
This book shows you how to start to use Photoshop. It also explains to you what you are actually doing to a photo when for instance you are changing the Saturation. If you are just starting out on Photoshop or need to learn how to really guide yourself on it this book would be great.
However, if you can already change things like the contrast or re size and image then I would suggest a more advanced book.
Since I'm not currently interested in Photography, I didn't read the first part of the book.
The following chapters were excellent:
Chapter 11 "Precision Edges with Vector Paths."
Chapter 12 "Dressing Up Layer Styles."
Chapter 13 "Giving Your Images a Text Message."
Chapter 14 "Painting in PhotoShop."
I also bought a new book but not straight from Amazon to get a better price. I have been impressed with how well the Dummie's books cover the topics and are slightly less costly to the consumer.
