P.S. The kindle version is absolutely useable on a iPad or Kindle for the computer. I know some times that can be a problem!
I have used Photoshop since it's infancy but as it got more and more complicated I just stuck with what I knew. When Lightroom came out I realized that it would do most of what I needed, only going to Photoshop when I just had to. As Lightroom got better and better with each edition (BTW, buy Kelby's Lightroom book, it's great!) and Photoshop got more and more complex I avoided it. When Adobe started the Creative Cloud Photographer bundle I figured since I was paying for Photoshop I may as well learn more about it. I have several Photoshop books, including Kelby's, but they were as intimidating as the program itself already was. So . . . Scott Kelby cleverly put out this book about the same time, an answer to my prayers. It shows me what I need to know and leaves out a lot of the graphic design stuff that a photographer like me just doesn't care about.
I teach photography and editing classes at the local art center with Lightroom. I used to cringe when people would ask me Photoshop questions but since I now have the e-book version of this on my iPad I always have it with me, I can look up answers quickly. The students think I am so smart and pay big bucks to take these night classes in Lightroom editing. They could save a lot of money by just ordering this and the Lightroom book, it's all the reference most folks would ever need.
The drawback that keeps me from giving a five star rating is that I found the book focussed on the "how" and a bit lacking on the "why." I felt that there was a cookbook feel with recipes for dealing with certain issues in one's images. I would have liked more explanation of why a particular process, filter, setting, etc. was selected from all the choices PS offers. It would be somewhat analogous to not just saying add a tsp of some spice to a dish but adding the explanation of what that spice contributes. The value being that the cook would better understand when to use that spice in preparing another dish.
In short, I would recommend this book to help introduce you to working with Lightroom and Photoshop together. I just feel that I'm somewhat unclear about how to expand upon the book's lessons.
I recently procured Photoshop Elements 11 and needed some guidance for how to use it.
This book was nearly perfect for me. Once you passed the first few pages and can find your way around Photoshop, its explanations are simple enough to open the book when you need it, find the section dealing with what you want to do right now and follow the steps.
With a caveat: some aspects of the operations are geared towards more complete versions of Photoshop than Photoshop Elements, such as the beginning of chapter 3 about smart objects - this does not work with Photoshop elements and this is a pain but oh, well, I just don't have the grand-odd to spend on the full version.
All in all even if this book does not take me all the way to the proficiency I want to achieve with Photoshop, it will take me close enough that I can pick it up from there (possibly sing other books) and I consider the mission of this particular book to have been fulfilled.
One last word: if you value your time, skip the silly introduction to each of Scott Kelby's chapters. At this level of silliness they are nearly confusing.
