Official Adobe Photoshop 5 Studio Techniques teaches in full color and in a clear, well-organized style that intuitively follows the user through techniques rather than touring the application. The author teaches through the use of analogies and concepts, using a fun and informal--yet authoritative--tone. The book is divided into three sections: Part I: An introduction into the mechanics of the application. Covers the tools and palettes, and explains techniques such as selections and layers in language everyone can understand. Part II: Explores techniques. Rather than listing tools one by one, it demonstrates vital operations, covering each tool as it comes into play. Covers such topics as resolution, line art scanning, and working with grayscale images. Part III: Takes the reader through more advanced techniques. Covers topics such as color correction, composting, retouching, and other enhancements.

Yes, the book is full of great info. But I especially appreciate the style of writing, which allows you to just take it to bed and read it, from cover to cover, bookmarking as you go. Making computer-ese readable is a huge achievement.
