I found the title to be a little misleading Having read and owning several of Kelby group books I found Photo Effect Cookbook a repeat of those If you are into graphics using a photograph I am sure it is helpful More for that interest than the photographer interested in improving their images through Photoshop I ended up after a week returning the book to the vendor Not because it was bad, but because it wasn t what I wanted. I been using this book for several weeks now and found it contains a lot of things found in other books which is to be expected but it also has some new techniques and special effects that I found interesting I found this book very useful and would recommend it if your looking for special effects in using photoshop.
