A handbook for intermediate users accompanied by downloadable tutorials

Title: Focal Easy Guide to Photoshop CS2: Image Editing for New Users and Professionals

Author: Brad Hinkel

ISBN: 0240520017

Publisher: Focal Press

Edition: Paperback

Review: Despite the description “for new users and professionals”, this isn’t a book for a beginner, missing basic elements such as an explanation of the tools. Despite useful information, it is rather dull and uninspiring; some of the screen shots are fairly small, making them tricky to see clearly. While the accompanying website includes a selection of useful PDF tutorials that can be downloaded, ultimately there are other more accessible books with better illustrations.
