If you're a photographer who wants to make the most of Photoshop CS3, check out Mark Gaier's Photoshop CS3: Essential Skills. This hands-on, project-based guide is everything you'd want: It's well organized, knowledgeable, and carefully structured to help you build your expertise one step at a time. It's also gorgeous, and a pleasure to work from. Now bundled with a DVD containing eight hours of QuickTime how-to movies, plus loads of royalty-free high-res images, this has become a full-fledged training package, not "just" a book.
It's also packed with new content, much of it focused on Photoshop CS3's important workflow improvements, especially the new Raw > Smart Object > Smart Filter workflow. There's new coverage of Refine Edge, B&W Adjustment, and Photoshop CS3's revamped High Dynamic Range support -- and Gaier doesn't just offer the "official" line: he discusses these features' limitations and offers some very handy workarounds.
