    Hello all,

    After starting in the digital age, I rapidly need to catch up on my photoshop.

    Can anyone reccomend a good book to go with photoshop 7? Or should I do it another way? learn at night class or something? I'm learning a lot from all your tutorials, but just feel I need to start from the bottom

    Thanks

    There are a few good books out there. I looked a lot at one just called the photoshop bible that was very informative.

    Any book by Scott Kelby is a good one. I used a combination of books, internet tutorials, and many hours of screwing around, to hone my skills.

    Any specific questions you have, ask here. I'm sure one of us can help.

    Definately ask here there are alot of very knowledgeable PS folks around the forum. If you are looking for a place to start, it might help exploring traditional darkroom techniques and how to replicate them in photoshop :)

    I've started with trying to do dodging and burning etc, but there's too many options!!!!

    I thought if I get a good book and start from the beginning I won't get quite as lost. I'll try some of the ones suggested though

    Thanks everyone
