By far the most excellent book I've ever had the pleasure to own. Even though this book seems "too old" to be helpful, you'll have to take my word for it: it's not.

Anyone wanting to know PhotoShop well should invest in this book. If not in this one, then in another one from the 'WOW!' series. Wow is right.
