      Comments about O'Reilly Media Adobe Photoshop CS5 One-on-One:

      I used to work with PS 7.0, mostly for simple chores like cut, paste, and add text to screen images used for HTML help documentation. Now, I want to do some serious image editing, mainly to compensate my inadequacy of my digital camera and my photography ability, for my personal photos collected on the various trips in the past and the future. I have searched online for various tutorials and books, and this book came across and I bought it on amazon.com. I'm now starting to read the book lesson by lesson, and have learnt a lot.

      I definitely would recommend this book to all of my friends who like me starting doing serious photo editing.

                I have reviewed the book by Deke and other Photoshop CS5 books but Deke provides the best explanation and guidance on using the new CS5 features. Since I teach Photoshop for a college the clear examples from the book and videos mean you can use the new CS5 in seconds. My only issue is locating the book files.

                  I have been using Photoshop since version 7 and every release since. This is the best book written explaining simply and completely how to use many of the "hidden" functions of this complex software.

                  When downloading the videos and samples I found the instructions accurate and complete. No problems at all.

                  Everyone using Photoshop should have this book. It will save you hours of frustration and who knows how many mistakes and re-dos!

                      I was unable to access the videos as promised in the book. After researching online I discovered this is a common problem. If you plan to rely on the videos do not buy this book. I am very DISAPPOINTED.

                        The book is well written and interesting. [...] I found the instructions clear and easy to follow, and somehow the author knew just when I'd had enough for the first session and suggested a break.
