For a solid beginner, this is a good book, but any prospective reader should be aware that the first half of the book is, essentially, spent describing the tools in Camera Raw. I don't fault Kelby for this - most serious digital photographers prefer to work with their images in the raw format before, finally, opening it in PS for final touch ups, but I found myself continually asking, "well, yes, but when are we getting to the photoshop part?". That said, he did cover the most interesting new fe ...more

I jumped from Photoshop CS to CS5 - and before I even installed the new software, I went out and purchased this book by Scott Kelby. I have two of his other Photoshop books and like those, this book is an excellent resource for Photoshop users of any level.

The author sets down concise, step-by-step instructions for various processes - from using Minibridge to converting photos to black & white images to creating panorama shots from multiple individual photos, and everything in between. Scre

Need to start to read all my Photoshop books so I can work on my photos! simple as that. Kelby writes with humor and not sure if I want to go through this one or go straight to Adobe's Classroom in a Book, which is straight classroom learning. Kelby is fun in his digital photography books, but I need to learn this quickly, so we'll see.

I bought this as a reference manual and seldom read a reference manual cover to cover. I did this time though. I do not recommend re-telling any of Kelby's jokes to your teens, unless you want to see a lot of eye-rolling. The bad jokes did keep me from falling asleep, however. The book was clearly written with easily-understood steps.

Plain and simply put, this is a CS5 recipe book for photographers. And perhaps much more. Time will tell. For me, the proof of the pudding will be in an extended application of the techniques and procedures Kelby chose to include in it.

A very useful step by step book, covering the broad spectrum of editing as well as correcting errors.

in spite of the bad jokes and over inflated ego of Mr. Kelby, this is a good book to get the important points of a very complicated bit of software.
