Very Impressive June 1, 2011
There are detailed explanations of a huge variety of Photoshop techniques and the Actions included on the DVD are very educational. I am very impressed with this textbook. Readers may just find some tricks even Adobe doesn't know about! A great reference and has many extras as well...you will love it!
