As a reference source, this book is very detailed. As a learning source this book lacks substance. Most people who would buy this book are probably an experienced photographer or graphic designer. So it is hard for me to fathom why this book was printed with black and white sample images that are printed so poorly that many are just black squares with no detail remaining.
There is a web site available that allows you to download a subset of the images in color, but whole chapters of images are omitted, including the very complex chapters on 3D graphic editing. Almost no image in these chapters are viewable.
If you buy the Photoshop CS5 Bible, be prepared for a useful but limited reference guide. Or better yet, wait for a more mature book to be made available.

The pictures in this book are a big joke. You have to download the training files online, no CD with book. I will never bye a book online from Barnes & Noble again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
