Good evening folks.
I am in the process of buying CS3 extended. As I am a student I get it for £135. The downside is there is no manual in the box. Does anyone have any recommendations as to a suitable book to go with it?

Martin Evening's books on Photohop are some of the best around. Ben Willmore's book CS3 Studio Techniques is due out next month, I don't know to what extent he'll cover the extended version. He does explain things very well, I had the pleasure of meeting the man at a seminar in London and he was superb.
International membership to NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) has come down in price. You won't get hard copies of Photoshop User magazine, but will get a downloadable version. You'd still have access to lots of tutorials and a useful forum.
Try these for starters...
Why 'Extended'. It has no use for a stills photographer.
I use the CS2 version, and see that Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby is now available from Amazon UK for £18.59 which is a good saving.
Scott Kelby has written many books on Photoshop and is the Editor for Photoshop User Magazine.
Here we go - another link to Google.
I think Neil was asking for RECOMMENDATIONS, not just a list from a search engine...
FWIW, I'm reading Photoshop CS3 for Dummies, which is a lot more technical than it sounds, is written by an expert and in my opinion is worth every penny.
Mike - you can only get the student version in 'Extended', not the standard version.
Yup as Bri has said I was specifically looking for recommendations as I was looking through amazon as thats where I'm getting CS3 from and there were just so many. I've heard good things about Scott Kelby but his CS3 book isn't available yet. Also as Bri said I'm getting extended as its all you can get as a student.
Incidentally I was going to buy from the adobe store but between wanting CS3(before my summer job) and being able to afford it (ie now) the price has gone from £135 to £205 but its still £137 at amazon
Quote: you can only get the student version in 'Extended
Fairy Snuff. The extended version covers video and other 'multi-media' needs so it makes sense for it to be the 'Student' version. I'll pass that on to a friend of mine... Ta!
Have you tried these training vids for starters.
If it's any help, Amazon dispatched my copy of the Scott Kelby book yesterday so I guess they now have them in stock, unless they've run out already.
If your upgrading from CS2 This set of video tutorials explain the differences between CS2 and CS3. Paul
Thanks guys. I'm upgrading from elements 3. Bill when I was on amazon last night it said 4 - 6 weeks for delivery. Odd
Same here about 3/4 weeks delivery when I checked
