An easy guide for a beginner without being a "beginner" book
on November 16, 2011
I found this book easy to understand with its color images of the photoshop menu settings and step by step instructions to more tasks than I knew existed. Since it's jam packed with information, skimming for the pictures brought me back easily to what I needed again after I forgot what the technique would be listed as in an index.
I've tried looking up certain PS tricks online but I usually end up wishing I had this book handy. You can find what you want to do quicker. The tutorial examples ranges from simple tasks to complex, so whatever your level of expertise, you should be able to find the instructions you need. The healing brush tool (instant wrinkle remover) on p. 290 is my new best friend.
