A visually bright book written and illustrated by one of Photoshop's Gurus. There's a good logical structure with 12 in-depth lessons, backed up with two hours of video tutorials on the bundled DVD. Each lesson has screengrabs photos and step by steps so you can follow along. The only downside, from a photographer's point of view, is some of the photos, and what Deke does with them, make you ask ...why? Look beyond that though and you can apply the same technique on your own ( probably better) photos. A good book to add to your Photoshop reference section, especially the great explanation to reading histograms and adjusting exposure.
