PROPOSED REVISION PLAN:
Aside from updating material related to the software updates, Ken has a major revision in mind, including completely rewriting two chapters. Ken took over authoring this series of books and one of his goals is to rewrite as much of the content as possible in his voice and from his point-of-view. Ken is also planning on increasing the number of projects available at the end of each chapter (so that each chapter has at least three projects associated with it) adding approximately 25 more pages of hands-on, real life tutorials. Lastly, the design team is working to create an updated interior design template to be used with this series.

    Fairly good book

    It's a fairly good book for users of Paint Shop Pro X2. The editing should have been tighter however. The explanations and photographs do not always match - poor proofreading
