    What's a good book to learn Post-Processing? I have Photoshop CS3, and before I run out and buy "CS3 for Dummies" (I love the dummy books, they were written for me...lol), I wanted to know if someone here had anything that might be a little better. I am a visual learner, so visual examples (lots of pretty pictures) help me learn faster. Also, I am looking for something that will help me really get to know the program, plus I learn computer stuff faster than a lot of other people. So a book that gets kind of complicated towards the end wouldn't bother me (in fact, I might appreciate it when I get there).

    Anyway, does anyone have any advice? If not, I'll go get my dummies book, they usually don't steer me wrong (I seriously have about 15 of them...lol).

    I have photoshop cs2 for Dummies and I love it. I learned a whole lot from it on how to use photoshop. I don't have another book to compare it to, but I would deffinately recomend it to anyone trying to learn photoshop.

    I was at B&N the other day looking for photshop book I found: asobe photoshop cs3 in a classroom. It seems a well organized book (lesson chapters) and seems that your building up from chapter one. The reason I did not buy it is because I a photoshop cs. But you could go to your local book store and scan the book see if you like it.
    here is a link to amazon for book review:
    http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-Photosh...bs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1210768716&sr=1-2

    Good Luck...

    Great link. I have cs2 and I found that version here: http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-Photosh...bs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1210770058&sr=1-1

    I'm always wanting to learn more, so I bought it as well. Thanks again for the link and title.
