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.)
