    Great Way to Start Understanding Photoship

    There is probably no way to publish a book that covers all features of photoshop. It would look like the Oxford English Dictionary.

    The Adobe Photoshop CS4 Book for Digital Photographers clearly explains and highlights some of the most useful functions of CS4. Author Kelby certainly knows what he likes, and he shares it with the reader. This approach provides clarity and immediate utility for all of the procedures included in the book.

    Understanding CS4 could be a lifetime project, but this book provides a great start to get you up and running.

    Recommend for all CS4 users

    I decided to not upgrade to CS5 at this time. So I got Scott Kelby's book to learn my CS4 inside and out. I have several books by Scott Kelby, not only is he nformative in simple language he is very entertaining. Love his books.

    Terrific Book! Easy to Read! Lots of Stuff to Learn!

    This is a terrific book. I had to get it for college and then decided to keep it. It is written so you can jump around. There are so many great things to learn in this book and they are practical things that any person using photoshop should know how to do.

    Photoshop CS4 made easier to use

    Scott Kelby is a well known author of Photoshop books. He has made Photoshop easier to understand in this book. He breaks down all the main areas of photo editing and then gives easy steps on how to use the features. You don't have to read the whole book in order to learn how to use Photoshop. You can go to the section you need understanding in and not have to read it all to start working in the program.
    It is best to use this book while you are at the computer in front of Photoshop CS4.
    Photoshop can be overwhelming. You would never know all the things you can do without an instructor. The help screen in Photoshop is certainly not meant to teach you how to edit your pictures. With this book it is like having an instructor whenever you need one. Also I have found things that I wanted to do but didn't know where to begin and didn't want to ruin my pictures. The Photoshop CS4 book showed me how to easily do what looked so complicated.
