If you are a photographer, or interested in the abilities of Adobe Photoshop to handle slides, prints, and other photographs (as opposed to doing arty-crafty pastiches) then this book is a must-buy.

Martin Evening obviously knows of what he speaks. He has no personal vendettas to expound. The description is straightforward and concise. Although this book covers version 5, you would lose too much valuable information and tips if you wait until the new version of Adobe Photoshop for the Pentium III chip. Besides, half the readers of this book will be using a Mac computer anyway, and thus ver 5.0.2 is more than adequate.

Review by Nicholas Hellmuth, based on his experience as a professional photographer (publications include by National Geographic) digital photography (beta tester for the top of the high-end, Better Light), scanning (reviewer of Umax PowerLook II and III), and desktop printing (reviewer for Lexmark Corporation, QMS printers, Encad wide format, and EFI Fiery RIPs).
