    EXCELLENT

    Have been using photoshop for twenty years and find this book excellent for newbie or advanced user. Has all the new CS6 features covered in plain, easy to understand instructions. Photos included with highlights and instructions are very high quality and provide the visuals necessary to accompany the texts.

    Highly recommended. Thanks,
