There's honestly no way to become an overnight expert, be it in Photoshop or anything else, but this book will get you up and running in 24 hours or less. It's divided into two dozen one-hour "lessons," rather than chapters. Each one should take you about an hour to complete. Some lessons may need more time, others less. Please don't try to do it all in one 24 hour day, even if you could. The best way to learn isto take an hour or two between the lesson hours to try out what you've learned, and to simply poke around and see what's on the menus and what happens when you click here and there.
Here's one for you to start with: Open the About Photoshop window and wait for a minute. You'll see it start to scroll through the list of all the people who worked on the program. Watch carefully for the very last name on the list. To see the "secret" splash screen, press Control+Alt and then open Help, About Photoshop in Windows or press Command and open Apple menu, About Photoshop on a Macintosh. If you click the mouse in the space over the word Adobe in the main splash screen and wait for the credits to scroll through, you will see a bunch of funny quotes from Photoshop's programmers (Macintosh only).
