This manual is a must read for anyone new to Photoshop. It is organized very well to take a novice from the basics into the more advanced features of Photoshop. The lessons build upon one another and reinforce the prior topics. I have also found the book to be an excellent reference guide.

This book was so compelling and true to life as known by many Los Angelians. This is true life in the fast lane--danger, creative cash flows, everyday life of survival of the fittes.
