The Barnes & Noble Review
If you're an experienced graphic designer, you may well own a copy of Deke McClelland's outstanding -- nay, legendary -- Photoshop Bible. (If not, shucks, you're missing out on an incredible resource.) Now that Photoshop's in Version 6, here's why it behooves you to update your Photoshop Bible at the same time you upgrade your software.

Deke McClelland and his talented assistants have updated just about everything in sight. You'll find detailed new discussions of layers sets (now you can organize your layers into folders, a huge timesaver in managing complex compositions); custom layer styles; Photoshop's powerful (and bewildering) advanced blending options; and much more.

There's extensive coverage of Photoshop 6 color management (finally it's easier to get Photoshop and Illustrator to match); new vector-based shape drawing tools; Photoshop 6's fully editable object-oriented text; outputting layers directly to TIFF and PDF; and much more. There are two bonus chapters on CD-ROM, along with a complete eBook, the most detailed list of Adobe keyboard shortcuts ever assembled, and video clips from Deke McClelland's live video training series.

This edition's targeted specifically at Mac users (worry not, Windows-folk: Deke's also written a corresponding Photoshop 6 for Windows Bible). They're both terrific -- but what did you expect? (Bill Camarda)
