I thought I was already proficient in Adobe Photoshop until I purchased this book. With this book, I am learning a lot more about Photoshop's basics and numerous ways to navigate that I didn't learn to do before. This book is beneficial for Photoshop users of all levels. Even intermediate and pros need to go back to basics every now and then just to make sure they know everythig there is to Photoshop. Thus, this book is extremely help. I just started my first two lessons and have many lessons more to go on this book. RECOMMENDED.
