    But my boss just dropped this on my desk... so I can't complain.


    It's actually a 650+ page book, with a supplemental DVD included...

    ya definitely, i'm sure it has some fantastic tips. but it's one thing to hear someone describe what they do with text, another thing entirely to see them make the adjustments themselves. so i hope the dvd has plenty of mini tutorials.

    haha OT has finally caught the buzz of the Lynda.com DVD tutorials :big grin: I posted about these like 6 months ago, but didn't really tell many people, just casually mentioned.

    Chris Orwig :bowdown: That thing taught me SO MUCH it's awesome.

    Oh, and I have that exact book, but for CS2, it's good, but theres nothing the Lynda DVD's don't cover.

    I've got "Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Digital Photographers" by Scott Kelby. He's the editor of Photoshop User Magazine (or something like that).

    I know he wrote one for CS, so there might be a CS3 one coming out soon.

    I really like the way it is written. And it has been very useful for me.

    I "acquired" it for free on OiNK.. :h5:

    Had I known how useful it was, I would totally pay for it. It's taught me so much.

    So it seems these tutorials are well worth the money(downloading?).. Will definately have to look into this to help further my hobbie :big grin:

    Anything in particular you guys recommend?

    thats what i'm trying to figure out...

    Anyway, this book seems really good, it's advanced enough that i've learned a good amount in the one chapter I read, but basic enough that a beginner could use it.

    I just finished a really well written and explained section on Bruce Fraser's multi pass sharpening techniques.

    That guy was fucking :bowdown:

    I've been watching the Lynda lightroom tutorials, and dear God, I can't stand the way that guy talks! It seriously almost turns me off from photography/image editing.

    He like does this little "laughter" within a word, ALL THE TIME. And he emphasizes and drags out words like a douche. I can't demonstrate the laughter in text, but I'll try using hyphens. "We-e-elcome back to another tutorial. In today's wo-o-orkflow, we'll be exploring Li-i-i-ightroom's Develop module. Let's dig dee-e-eper into it!"

    I understand it's fun stuff, but he doesn't have to sound like a blissful idiot the whole time he's explaining things. Just typing all this is making me angry.
