User reviews
There are plenty of Photoshop books out there, but this is the first one I've seen that tells me exactly what I need to know and do to get the results I'm looking for. As an intermediate user of Photoshop, I've found this to be a wonderful resource for helping resolve specific problems quickly and efficiently without having to master the entire program at once.
The index is thorough and logical, so it's easy to get to the technique or solution you're looking for. The precise, step-by-step directions are clear and easy to follow, even when it requires working with a feature you're unfamiliar with, yet it doesn't dumb it down enough to annoy more advanced users.
This is one of those books that should be close to your computer at all times. An excellent resource and reference.
I worked through the first couple of chapters in this book, and had 100% more knowledge of Photoshop without even reaching halfway. The explanation of the RAW converter utilities changed my entire processing routine and has probably saved me 100's of hours of work up to now.

Great book - I have not finished it yet, but got my money's worth 10 times over. Good quality print and finish, and the delivery was on time.
If you want to learn Adobe Photoshop CS4 in a simple, quickly and understandable way, that is the book you need.
I bought this book from Amazon; it came quickly. I have no complain at all. The book appears to be quite instructional, but I have not spent enough time on it yet to really recomment it. Sorry...
This is a very good introduction to Photoshop CS3 for the beginning digital photographer and a useful reference book for the more experienced Photoshop user.

The book is aimed at photographers and not graphic artists, unlike many other PS books. It follows a logical work flow progression, beginning with Adobe Bridge, which is an application included with PS CS3 that can be used to import pictures from a camera and to select and sort them. Next it moves to another part of Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw (ACR), which allows for untargeted adjustments to the imported files. In Part II, it's on to manipulation in the main body of Photoshop, with emphasis on cropping, tonal adjustments and color correction. (Most of the tools mentioned here are also available in ACR in a similar form and although the bulk of instructions is contained here, it can be applied to ACR, although I wish the tie-in had been a little stronger.) This part then shows how to make local enhancements, sharpen a photo and print it. Part III talks about retouching and Part IV about advanced concepts like special effects and combining images. The first two parts will be sufficient for most photographers to learn how to turn out good prints.

The writing is clear, no-nonsense and almost pedantic but that's not so bad in a book of this type. Occasionally the authors will point out why certain adjustments are appropriate, but mostly the reasons will have to be inferred. For example, they suggest the artistic reasons for cropping, but when it comes to tonality, while they explain how to control it fully, the authors don't emphasize the importance of using the full range of light, or when one might not want to. Readers interested in learning more about the art should look at books like "Photoshop Artistry: For Photographers Using Photoshop CS2 and Beyond (Voices That Matter)" by Barry Hynes or "Outdoor Photographer Landscape and Nature Photography with Photoshop CS2 (Outdoor Photographers)" by Rob Sheppard.

I was impressed by the fact that Smith and Cooper did not follow the almost politically correct line of saying format isn't so important, and unreservedly said that Raw is the best format for most shooting. The book includes a CD with images to work on. New users will find this tutorial approach extremely useful. Less useful were the videos on the disc which don't relate to specific chapters but seem more designed to sell related video instruction. Occasionally some small piece of information that I considered important, like setting the ACR preference for sharpening, was not included.

Unfortunately, the book does not cover the important changes to ACR made by version 4.1. Readers will have to find instruction about the update on-line at places like Jeff Schewe's piece at [...]

This seems an excellent book for new users to learn Photoshop CS3. (People familiar with Photoshop CS2 can save themselves a little time by reading Ben Willmore's "Adobe Photoshop CS3: Up to Speed".)
Every once in awhile you read a book that's more than just a learning tool, it becomes part of your reference library, this is one of those books.

I've been using photoshop for over a decade but hadn't upgraded in a couple of version so got this book to help get me up to speed on CS4. Well it certainly has exceeded my expectations in that regard and others.

The friendly writing style and the beautiful full color screenshot examples made it fun to read and one of the added bonuses is that along the way there are tips, tricks and thought provoking ideas that not only reinforce the learning but will also help make me take better shots straight out of the camera.

The included CD ROM has all the reference files you need to follow along which really helps the info sink in and the video lessons alone are worth the price of the book.

I really like the way it is laid out so that I can reach for it and within seconds have the answers to time saving soultions (like a recipe book for chefs) at my fingertips.

Whether you are switching from film to digital and whether you are completely new to Photoshop or are just upgrading I think this book is a must read and will earn a place in your reference library as well.
