Overview

When it comes to Photoshop(r), time is money, and this hot new book (from Scott Kelby and Felix Nelson, the team behind Photoshop User magazine) is all about speed, speed, and more speed! This book is all tips--there are no special effects: no flaming type, no glows, etc.--it's just packed cover-to-cover with nothing little-known tricks and tips that the pros use every day to get twice the work done in half the time.

The idea behind this book comes from something that every great Photoshop book already has--those valuable little sidebar tips. We found that we often read those tips first, before we'd even actually read the chapter. The only problem is, there's just not enough of 'em. So we thought, "Wouldn't it be cool if there was a Photoshop book, and the whole book, cover-to-cover, was nothing but those great sidebar tips." That's what we've created in this book, which is all about the fun (and bragging rights) that come with knowing "all the inside tips."

The reason why the book's slogan is "speed kills!," is because this is the book that will make you faster and more productive than ever so you can "smoke the competition."

    3/5 stars, its okay

    Some of the tips are 'Killer', the rest are just 'Filler'. Sad, because Kelby/Nelson kept repeating some of the same tips in a different way. On the other hand, its well written & not boring with only one mistake that I could find, which was the 'Undocumented shortcut' to bring the fill dialog box up and instead it was the shortcut to lock transparent pixels/fill, but later-on he does give the right shortcut. I apparently knew most of the 'Killer Tips' already. If you don't know that the bracket keys [ ] increase/decrease your brush size, then this book will be very useful. But don't expect to be godly enlightened, because there is actually a tip in this book that says to use 'image > image size' to make your files smaller or larger in size, ah this reminds me of when he said, 'We wrote it to get free drugs', in the introduction. I don't think he was kidding! ;)
