Comments about oreilly Adobe Photoshop CS5 One-on-One:

The link for files that should be available online doesn't work. The book remains almost useless without it once you can't follow the lessons.

    Comments about oreilly Adobe Photoshop CS5 One-on-One:

    After spending hours trying to get to these online resources, I dialed the numbers and the, "Customer Service," extension, which said there was no such extension.

    Was waiting to add this book to the syllabus for the class I'm teaching, but obviously will not.

    Exactly the kind of bait-and-switch, time-wasting I do not need. The book seems ok, but this whole marketing effort? Pffft. Shameless promotion with about 50% of the promised substance.

          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.
