Review:

"Valuable tips infest this book like locusts from some biblical plague! A must for any Photoshop hack."

I used to think I was a fairly good Photoshop user, but after reading this book, I've come to the conclusion that I'm a moron. This Scott Kelby guy is a genius. He knows Photoshop like a vampire knows a neck, and he attacks his subject with the same gusto. The information, nay, wisdom gushes out of this book like water through a fire hydrant. It's just good!

The best part about all this is that Kelby doesn't ever put on airs. He never says, "Oh, I am the Photoshop Lord, so let me tell you the sordid history of Photoshop and pontificate at length about my many graphics arts achievements" or any of that other malarkey that a lot of those so-called expert books regurgitate. Kelby is the humble master, offering the most amazing tricks and suggestions you would never think up yourself, and doing so in a tight, well-written manner. I mean, this book reads so well that it actually made me want to subscribe to the Photoshop User magazine he edits just to read more of his stuff.

This is not a beginner's book. Don't pick it up if you're just learning Photoshop or are utterly unfamiliar with the terms. There is no handholding. There are no tedious explanations or goofy icons. It's just knowledge and wisdom written and illustrated in an appropriate and easy-to-follow manner. Even a Photoshop moron such as myself could follow the instructions and do amazing things.

The cover price may pinch you, but the information is worth it--even without the four-color illustrations on practically every page. (And the illustrations are necessary and important, not like the eye candy or silly graphics of many other four-color books.) This book reminds me of the heyday of computer book publishing way back in the late '80s: it's good, well-presented information, and it makes you a better computer user after reading it. I can't recommend it enough. --Dan Gookin

From the Publisher:

Yes, this is the very same book that’s been among the best-selling Photoshop 6 books since its release. Why is New Riders now publishing it? Because we’re proud to be partners-in-publishing with Scott Kelby and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).

Nothing has changed in the book: if you already own the NAPP-published version of this book, you’ve got everything you need. But if you’re serious about Photoshop and you don’t own this book, check it out. No other title is so packed with vital, intriguing tips and techniques. You get this stuff in a hurry, too; the content is truly the quick and dirty on how to get the most out of Photoshop. And where New Riders’ Photoshop Magic books each dig into stepped-out procedures that are an average of 15-to-20 pages long (think of them as being in-depth lessons), Scott cuts to the quick and loads his book with the kind of time-saving and high-quality material that’s made this book an instant classic.
