By Lorraine Jay 13 Jun 2012
These classroom in a book series are good; but the Adobe Creative team need to appreciate that people who buy these books may have "NO" knowledge of the software. This was me last year, and a simple commands instructions arent always included in the lessons; on the whole, these books are worth buying.
I was abit disappointed when this arrived as I flicked through and saw that one of the chapters had just been lifted straight out the CS4 Photoshop book, but the basic layering technique from the earlier book version is still applicable now.
The more complex lessons covering the upgrades are good, but again a few key instructions being left out, this can be very frustrating.
These books are better than the majority of other publishers in my opinion.
The delivery time on these books even when in stock has been painfully slow by Book Depository.
