    Adobe Photoshop CS5 is the best book I have come by when it come

    Adobe Photoshop CS5 is the best book I have come by when it comes to learning about different aspects of the use of making photos the way you want them to look. I started out by learning about the CS5 in college and now use it all the time at home to do my photo work. I like the Photoshop CS5 for Dummies because it is a little more detailed and gos step by step which makes things easier for me. Nancy Perkins
