"He has a project-based approach
"Anytime I know I’m going to be on a long flight I like to take the books from this series and re-read them because I always pick up great new things each time. While it’s more of a recipe book that you'll use as a reference, I find myself using this book at least once a month for some tricky challenge I face. I love it and can’t live without it!”
Skill Level : ALL - Beginner to Advanced
Value: Excellent (worth every penny)
Recommendation : Must Own for those who don’t have previous editions and worth the upgrade for those doing video or who want to pick up modern day skills. ¿

This step-by-step guide by one of the foremost experts, Scott Kelby, breaks it all down into manageable chunks with simple text and great illustrations and sample images. The index allows you to find just the topic you're looking for and jump into that section, or if you're truly a neophyte, you can start from the beginning and work your way through. Sometimes, I just pick up the book and flip randomly to a new section so that I can practice another skill. The writing style is clear and entertaining without an excessive use of jargon.
Highly recommended whether you're just starting out in Photoshop, or looking to upgrade from a basic skill level.
I consider myself around an intermediate level photoshop user having used it now for 5-6 years albeit in a limited way.
First thing to note, this book is for photograher users, not graphic design users. If you want to know how to design say web interfaces or GUI elements, them while you no doubt gain useful info, this book is all about editing photographs, not making buttons and interfaces etc.
The biggest revelation to me was how far the camera raw settings have come, as i say having been using raw adjustments for 5 + years. Maybe i didnt fully understand what was there before, but now I can edit much or all I need to in raw alone, and the raw adjustments do many things either better than the photshop adjustments, or things that they dont really do. I love the Adjustments brush in raw, for instance.
Scott gives a wide varity of options in many cases, but always gives his own preferences and reasons why . The chapter on sharpening is as comprehensive as you would ever want, in my opinion, as a good example.
I have had absolutely o problems understanding any of the instructions, the screen shots and annotations are as clear and easy to follow as you would want, and the whole thing just makes sense and is easy to follow.
Negatives: - well there arent too many, if any. One small thing - I would like to see an index of the "Photoshop Killer Tips" up front as some of these are gems but its like if you didnt know they were there, how would you ever thing to look them up in the index at the back?
The other thing, not a negative, but maybe if you are a top-level user you might already know a lot of whats in the book. But then, would you have a need for a book if you were that sort of user?
His workflow is exactly the same as it was for Lightroom and most techniques are done with layers instead of brushes. I believe that this book is useful in its own way. Most of the technique you can find on youtube and Adobe's website.
So do not buy if you want anything more than than a 475 page tutorial of where things are at. Plus, there is a newer version for 2013 that includes Photoshop CS6 and CC, for exactly the same price. Link below.
