I'm looking for a book to walk me through setting up a clean digital workflow. This guy knows his stuff, but is in serious need of an editor--the book would be half the length if you removed all the self-amused geekery. If I wanted that kind of guide, I'd troll the message boards of photoshop websites...
Must Have "How To" Book for Photoshop CS2: If you want a "how to" book for Photoshop and not want to get into a technical discussion about the nuances of different slider settings, Buy this book.
Say you want to know how to reduce digital noise from high ISO. 3 steps and you are there.
Wonderful book. Must buy.
This book will not teach you how to shoot. So no discussion on framing, F-Stops, Apperture Priority.
This book will teach you how to post process in PS-CS2.

Good book on using the basics of Adobe Photoshop CS2. The author explains what some of the more popular tools in Photoshop and then walks you through an example of how to accomplish the effect.

The book is filled with Kelby's sense of humour which will have you groaning more than a few times, but the content is very good.

Some tips are not applicable to the new version of CS3, but some are.

Although I'm reading the CS2 book and using it for CS4 it is VERY helpful! There is so much to learn with photoshop and this really hits on some useful stuff! I checked it out from the libaray and didn't even finish it before it was due back. This is probably one of the only books I've checked out more than once!
Scott Kelby does a great job making a distance between beginners and professional approach to image manipulation. He explains all the things you need to now when doing certain manipulation in Photoshop. Also a dose of healthy humor make this book stand out.
it's cool can learn about photography from basic,,it give base knowledge about level.curve and trick to make photo better else,,,and in last chapter,you'll find trick to create border for photo...

Recommends it for: amature photographer/photoshoppers
My go-to book for photoshop questions. As always, I love to hear Kelby's voice and personality shine through his writing. Even if it is just a basic tutorial, he always adds some spice to it!
OMG! So helpful! If you've even got a mild interest in digital photography (a digital camera, and photoshop) this is the book to get started with. Very easy to follow.
David Ho
A must have for those new to Photoshop. This is specially written for Digital Photographers how has limited knowledge on Photoshop for post processing work.
A great "how to" book that can make any amateur look like a professional. After years of photo retouching, I still refer to this book for tips and techniques.
Scott is a great author and his explanations on how to do things is a great way to start learning photoshop.
Very "user friendly". Great instructions and easy to follow his steps. Wonderful addition to the Photoshop Programs.

practical guide for common problems in the digital photo era.
Scott Kelby is one of my favorites
I love Scott Kelby - he rocks!
nice to learn, good !
i taught 'photoshop for photographers' from this book - kelby has a dorky sense of humor but admire both his ability to be deceptively simple - there's a lot of meat in this book - and i really liked working with his photos. he's a really good photographer, again, making something simple into something pretty great!
