Adobe Photoshop CS Classroom in a Book


Free U.S. shipping on orders of $10 or more



Photoshop is one of those programs that's so cool you just want to dive right in and start creating--but by plunging in head-first, without any guidance, you're likely to miss a lot. There's a solution: With this book, you learn by doing, getting your feet wet immediately as you progress through a series of hands-on projects that build on your growing Photoshop knowledge. Simple step-by-step instructions, review questions at the end of each chapter, and a companion CD with all of the book's project files make learning a breeze as the Adobe Creative Team takes you on a self-paced tour of the image-editing powerhouse. Completely revised to cover all of Photoshop CS's new features (including a new file browser, nonsquare pixel support, Layer comps for creating design variations, and more), the book starts with an introductory tour of the software and then progresses on through lessons on everything from Photoshop's interface to more complex topics like color management, Web graphics, and photo retouching.

Customer Reviews of Adobe Photoshop CS Classroom in a Book

A powerful tutorial for a powerful program

The Adobe Creative Team consistently produces the most powerful tutorials for Adobe products, and their manual for Adobe Photoshop CS is no exception. They are always well organized with clearly explained, excellent, and practical excercises.

As a professional Photoshop trainer, I still rely on these manuals to bring me up to date on the newest features in new releases of the software. The learning experience is greatly enhanced by working through actual excercises and provides an understanding of how and when features can be used for a personal creative approach.

A word of warning-Photoshop is an extremely powerful program and both the software and the manual can be extremely overwhelming for those who have had little experience with computer graphics. Anyone wanting or needing to use Photoshop, but finding the self teaching approach daunting, I highly recommend some type of classroom training. But even in this setting Adobe Photoshop CS Classroom in a Book will provide an excellent source for the practical application of the program.

Exciting, Excellent learning material

My most interesting class this term. The book is full of information and very helpful. You can teach yourself just off of reading this material.
Excellent buy.

Works for me!

I'm not sure why other reviewers gave negative reviews - I think the classroom in a book is a great intro to Photoshop CS. I bought it, having zero experience with Photoshop, and in days I was manipulating photos in ways I never thought possible. My wife is working through the course now, and she's having similar results. I highly recommend this book to those who are new to Photoshop.

I will say, however, that you have to have at least a double digit IQ to be able to understand and follow the steps in the lessons...

Adobe Photoshop CS Classroom in a Book (Classroom in a Book)

I have found this book to be a valuable resourse for teaching Photoshop CS to Graphic Design students. I could recomend it to anyone wishing to learn how to use Photoshop CS.

Great book for beginning and intermediate students!

I teach people who are not computer professionals to create palmcards and other outreach material. The material needs to be catchy for people to read it. I use this book to teach folks how to make great literature, and classes are much better with this book than any other. Professionals this book is NOT for you. It is not meant to be a guide where you have a problem and want a one-page discussion of a fix. That is what the Bible Series (Photoshop CS Bible) is for. Or on a easier level, what the Visual Quickstart Guide series is for. However, beginners and non-computer professionals cannot learn with books like this. They need books that teach all the tools and features systematically with fun, relevant projects. The projects in this book are grouped according to skill learned, ex. layers, masking, selection tools, and are fun. Sure color would be great, but my students could not afford this. Hell, they are constantly borrowing my copy because they can't even afford the black & white copy! The lessons are so fun students don't even know how much they are learning. I highly recommend this book for newer computer students, or non-professional students. Thanks you Adobe Creative Team!
