    Comments about oreilly Photoshop CS6 Unlocked, 2nd Edition:

    This is the second edition of a title that has been very popular. The author notes "this book is primarily for web designers" and the content is about using Photoshop specifically for web design. With topics such as Creating Buttons, Creating Backgrounds, Manipulating Images, and Advanced Photoshop techniques this book delivers a very straightforward, easy to read and informative introductory/intermediate guide to Photoshop

    The advanced section is a small part of this otherwise large read. With over 400 pages, most of which are dedicated to basics, this is a book that I would recommend to the introductory or possibly also intermediate Photoshop user.
