Just wanted let everyone know and to say thank you to Lynette for producing an easy to follow, understand, extremely well organized and content filled book. Further I was super excited to see it already available for Kindle. Although I have had CS5 Master Suite for over a year now (*those who have learned this in the past know the curve)...I am just starting to finally rap my head around some of the finer points of CS5 Photoshop, Bridge (*of course mini bridge) and Lightroom 3. However I am still trying like a bald tired monster motored hot rod in the mud, to get moving on learning most of the rest of CS5 still (did I mention I have master suite), but Photoshop along with OnOne's Perfect Photo Suite, Topaz Labs Suite and Unified Colors Suites have been my primary focus.

Lynette, Your book will aid in my learning more than you may ever know. I was a top IT OP's/Deployment manager until a torn retina cost me most of my vision. That, coupled with other heath issues left me with little more than the taking/playing with a photo here & there and that is all I have left (yep - blind photographer, what a concept!). So this really has so far been and no doubt will continue to be a fun read, Again Thank You and as always - Cheers! Brad

This book, by far, is the very best Adobe Photoshop explanatory text. It compliments a basic text on Photoshop. Even for a beginner like me, this book offers so many ideas for the use of Photoshop. And, many ideas springboard off the lessons offered by this book.

I highly recommend any Photoshop user to get the book. You will grow and be better using Photoshop. Amazon, thank you for carrying the book. FYI, I just bought another copy.

It's so good it's almost interactive! Easy to understand & follow along with as well as a ton of tips & tools to learn with. The only thing I haven't seen yet is a section on creating seamless textures which is fairly easy to learn anyway. I purchased this book, being at an intermediate level in Photoshop, but it teaches so much more than that. Buy it, you won't be sorry!

Photoshop being so popular just when one things who needs another book something like this comes out and if you get a look inside you will have to have it.

It does go a long LONG way in making the somewhat complicated software highly usable by newbies.

I usually quickly pass over books on the store shelf with titles that include words like "visual" or "simplified" or "in 24 hours" or "for dummies". Despite experiences to the contrary, I am reluctant to voluntarily toss myself into the dummy demographic bin. If I shell out money for a book, it is because I am serious about the subject -- and the book, with all its distilled knowledge, should serve as a reachable resource on the shelf next to the computer.

This is one of those shelfable books.

Keeping text to a minimum, the author provides step-by-step instructions for dealing with a large array of problems most commonly encountered by the type of people who enter the Photoshop swamp. I have some other, very nice, Photoshop books but the tightly organized and compact format of this one means that the guidance I want is close at hand and presented far more professionally than available in an internet search.

My main critcism of the book is the same I have for most Photoshop books: it has a bias toward photographers. We unwashed Web and UI designers are forced to pick up valuable scraps where we can find them.

Recommended for no-nonsense, non-dummy types.

As a long time Photoshop user with two thick dusty books on CS3 I decided I'd try something lighter in cost, weight, and subject depth. I wanted a book to help get me going with CS5's new features. This was OK for that and a bit more giving me a few tips & tricks I wish I'd known for previous PS versions. I feel it was a good value.
Great product!
