The Barnes & Noble Review
This is your chance to learn Photoshop one-on-one from Deke McClelland. Suddenly, with Adobe Photoshop CS2 One-on-One, the legendary Photoshop author is your personal coach.

How it works: For every key concept, there’s Deke on DVD, offering complete personal video instruction. (Not cruddy postage-stamp videos, either -- this stuff’s superbly captured and edited.) After you watch, turn to McClelland’s splendid full-color book. He’ll guide you through a challenging hands-on project that illuminates what you’ve just learned, offering even more insight and tips.

McClelland covers file management, brightness, contrast, color balance, selection, image transformation, painting, retouching, masking, filters, layers and layer styles, printing, and a whole lot more. The instruction is clear, the tips expert, the projects challenging. And McClelland himself is just plain fun. The man’s a Photoshop legend for a reason.
