Review: The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices that Matter)

Today I'm going to review one of the Scott Kelby books, The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices that Matter). Scott Kelby is the editor-in-chief and co-founder of the Photoshop User magazine. He has written many very useful Photoshop books and this book is also one of them.

Most of the Photoshop books in the market will just teach the readers about the features of Photoshop but NEVER give the readers the correct settings to perform certain tasks!!! I owned at least 5 Photoshop books but none of them really help me to solve real life problems correctly.

This book has 15 chapters and each chapter focus on a specific problem. In addition, the chapters are laid out the same as the professional photography workflow about digital photo processing. It is very easy to let readers to follow or just do a quick reference.

Scott mentions about this book is for professional or prosumer photographers. Amateurs may find this book too hard for them since there are some photography terminologies inside the book (e.g. f-stop, exposure, contrast).

You can find the book at Amazon or the ISBN is 0-321-33062-5.
