This series is a tremendous waste of money. You'd think that "Classroom in a Book" would mean "If you read this book you'll learn how to use the software. You would also think "If I have a question I'll be able to look up the answer. This is actually a CD of sample projects with which you can follow along to see how they were created, in case you want to do something similar.
The book is commentary on those sample projects. But if you want to learn how to do something specific, or look up how to use a certain feature, this book is useless.
Many of the software features aren't even listed in the index.
Shortly after my download I had a long chat with an Adobe rep about my concerns regarding this product and he promised "I will go ahead and escalate the case to our relevant team who would be able to review this chat and get back to you with an appropriate resolution. And while I was waiting to hear back from them, the return window expired, so now I have a very expensive paperweight.
I am extremely disappointed in Adobe. Paul S. Remington Top Contributor: This is a self-directed course that has me working independently along with a primary mentor, so there are no other students or formal classes. I was instructed in the learning contract to complete this book along with eight projects and a paper.
I ordered this book on site and have been working my way through it one chapter at a time. There are no outside influences to sway my learning abilities.
No professor to guide me, no students to correct me, no other resources, just me and this book.
With all that said, I will state that this book is well written. It has been carefully thought out and edited. It is extremely powerful software that can be an enormous asset to both a layperson and a seasoned professional. It is not without its faults. There were many times I labored over some of the chapters because the authors make certain assumptions about the knowledge base of the reader. A few times menu selections or features were not available at all, which I learned later is because certain plugins had not been installed on my computer Zoomify, Flash, etc.
On more than one occasion, menu selections were named something a little different, which leads me to believe the book may have been written from an earlier release of CS6. I was able to work around this by digging into other menu drop downs to locate it elsewhere. The beginning of each chapter provides a time estimate for the chapter. I found these estimates to be very inaccurate. Add the frustrations described above, and this amounted to more time.
In my experience, their estimates were not well determined for those inexperienced with the software, carefully trying to work through each lesson. The book comes with a supplied disk that contains lessons for each chapter.
So many books just throw a lot of information at you. This book carefully walks you through each lesson, step-by-step, so you come away with hands-on experience using tools in Adobe Photoshop.
As an actively engaged reader, I find that after working through this book, I have more clear memories for the material than I would if it had been a more passive read. Photoshop is a powerful tool and worth taking the time to get acqu The most excellent how-to, tutorial-style book I have ever worked with. Photoshop is a powerful tool and worth taking the time to get acquainted with. There are a couple of chapters at the end which I did not find as useful, I admit.
Photoshop has some webdesign capabilities built in, so there is a chapter on that, but it can't possibly be the best tool for webdesign. I also found the chapter about color management confusing, because I felt the coverage was too brief for such a complex subject.

Each layer can then be edited as discrete artwork, allowing tremendous lexibility in composing and revising an image. New iles are generally created with a background layer, which contains a color or an image that shows through the transparent areas of subsequent layers. All new layers in an image are transpar- ent until you add text or artwork pixel values.
Working with layers is analogous to placing portions of a drawing on clear sheets of ilm, such as those viewed with an overhead projector: Individual sheets may be edited, repositioned, and deleted without afecting the other sheets.
When the sheets are stacked, the entire composition is visible. Press the spacebar for a full- screen view. You will create it now, and, in doing so, learn how to create, edit, and manage layers.
