I'm a newcomer to photoshop, having bought CS4 the week it was released. I purchased this book because I was impressed by a similar book written by Mark Galer on Elements, and also because it was simply the only book on CS4 that was actually in print at the time of purchase.

I have given Essential Skills five stars due to the quality of the written and video tutorials. The target audience would be someone with preexisting basic skills who can jump over the mediocre introductory materials and get right into the tutorials. For example, there is a tutorial on HDR technique that is far more advanced than anything I have seen online or in any other book. And, believe me, I have spent a lot of hours looking.

I'll grow into this book in a few months and will be very glad I bought it. However, it is not the best choice for someone in my present circumstances. I have since been able to spend an hour or more with Martin Evening's book, Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers, at the brick and mortar store. Evening's book is more readable and stronger on the basics. I would not hesitate to recommend Evening's book as the default choice for a newbie struggling to get started with CS4. The "missing manual" for CS4 hasn't hit the shelves yet, but Evening's book is far superior to any of the prior missing manual volumes.

Update 9-23-2009: Ten months later, I'd give this book (really, the CD) six stars if I could.

First, I regret the snide remark about the "mediocre introductory materials." Flame in haste, repent at leisure. Still, the gist of the thought was correct. The point of this publication isn't to read about color theory, it's to be able to stand over the shoulders of a real professional while he works. For digital photography theory (histograms, diffraction limit, out of gamut colors, etc., etc., etc.), google "Cambridge in Colour." Don't forget the "u" in colour. You'll be impressed by the quality and quantity of the free tutorials, not to mention the artist's gallery.

Second, my title was a bit off. The range is more like beginner to advanced intermediate, with the understanding that "beginner" doesn't include newbie. I recommend The Photoshop CS4 Companion for Photographers by Derrick Story for people who are just starting out from ground zero. Story's book is a good quick start guide, although you'll outgrow it quickly.

Third, I continue to recommend Martin Evening's book Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: A Professional Image Editor's Guide to the Creative use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC, which I now own. Evening's book doesn't duplicate this one at all, being more like an owner's manual or reference publication. You don't sit down to read Evening's book from cover to cover; you consult it as needed. However, I was wrong to recommend Evening's book as "the default choice for a newbie struggling to get started with CS4." Story's book works as a quick start guide; Evening's doesn't.

Finally, I really can't say enough good things about the video tutorials. You'd pay at least five times the price of this publication to take a CS4 class. Galer's lessons are good enough on the first viewing, but where they really begin to shine is when you start to work on some prize photo of your own and remember that a photograph he worked over had the same problems that you're now facing. Unlike a class, you can go back and find that lesson, and go over it as many times as you need to figure out the details of his technique. As much as I enjoy what Photoshop can do, it has to be understood that the interface is truly wretched and in need of a top to bottom overhaul. No one, no matter how bright, can learn to use CS4 effectively just by reading from text.

ok so maybe it feels unfinished since i bought it for the kindle and i didn't get the dvd with it. maybe i'm missing something but i didn't see any link to find the videos or images from the book on a site like i've found in other books on kindle. anyway i keep getting to a section that i think i may find useful and right when it seems like i'm going to learn something new the section just ends. they don't go deeper into the subject i was just reading about. they get you to a certain point and leave you high and dry.

i'm not new to photoshop at all i was just checking out some books to pick up some extra skills that i've been avoiding for some time and this book just left me with a big question mark over my head. i knew a lot of the techniques that were being taught but the ones that i didn't know didn't explain why i was being taught this technique. it was a big disappointment to me. based on the good reviews i figured i'd give it a try... i'll be more careful next time.

Edit:
I found links from the book to some online pages but it doesn't have all the photos from the book and it wasn't until chapter 12 that i was able to actually find something useful. also his techniques seem more complex than they need to be.

While no book is flawless, this one is generally easy to read, understand, and follow. It's a book that both intermediate, and beginners can feel comfortable purchasing. Using it as a reference is also easy. Advanced or professional photoshop shop users should probably not find this book very helpful.

If you are looking for a really good, well written and useful guide on how to use Photoshop CS4, this is the one. It is much better than the one by Adobe. I also liked Photoshop for Dummies! Explanations are clear and funny. Dummies remembers to tell you the little things you need to know.
