Excellent book for learning photoshop, whether you are a beginner or advanced. Very difficult to read the information in the screenshots They are minute and a magnifying glass is required to try and see what is happening with the application of the tools. Easy to understand full of great tips Easy to read as well as a reference book There is much to like about this book but it is let down by inconsistent style and poor screenshots It is not always clear what has changed from one screenshot to the next, you really need to study the control panel which is a small part of the overall screen, it would have been better to include an enlarged bubble showing the relevant setting Also some projects are only presented as a series of screenshots and captions while others include textual commentary That having been said the actual content and example projects are well chosen and informative and I have learned a lot albeit with effort than should have been necessary I will also add that I use Affinity Photo not Photoshop but the lessons were all easy to adapt to Affinity.
