    You will be making cool logos in 5 minutes

    If you have the bare basic skills in Photoshop (and web people, Imageready) and you want to start making logos, backgrounds, buttons or web graphics fast in Photoshop 6.o - this is the book for you. If you want to quickly learn how to take advantage of Photoshop 6.0's new effects - this is the book for you. Other tip books on Photoshop tend to focus mostly on Photoshop¿s image manipulation techniques and just touch on its graphic power, this book is just the opposite in that it spends most of its energy on graphics and type tricks although still covering images. I counted 38 different easy to follow 1 to 2 page example of type and logo tricks that will make you look like you know Photoshop inside and out. The Print quality is great with full color examples. While this book does not take sides on web vs print it is definitely a must for any web person with a fresh copy of Photoshop 6 or who has outgrown Fireworks.

    Received More than expected

    I have read numerous Photoshop books and completed a couple of online tutorials. None of them come close to this book. Easy to read and filled with many valuable techniques that will be appreciated by users of all levels. If are you new to Photoshop buy this book and the Adobe Classroom in a Book. After reading both you will have more than adequate knowledge to complete most graphic projects.
