You bought Photoshop CS2 to create great visual images: Why not learn it just as visually? With this book, you can, one task at a time. Each task gets its own full-color two-page or four-page spread, complete with screen captures that show exactly what to do and what happens when you do it. Just look up what you want to accomplish, follow the step-by-step instructions, and you’re there.
The authors walk you through Photoshop’s interface, including its slick new Bridge image browser; then cover all the basic skills you’ll need. You’ll learn to select and resize images; work with color, layers, type, effects, and filters; automate your work; preview and print images; save them for the Web; even add copyright data. There are over 150 tasks in all; together, they add up to real day-to-day mastery. Bill Camarda, from the August 2005 Read Only
