Buy the Book

"Photoshop CS in 10 Simple Steps or Less," is available at most large bookstore chains, such as Barnes & Noble and Borders, as well as online at Amazon ($17.49).

Comprised of 275 tasks (each detailing in 10 steps or less how to overcome a specific problem), the book helps both new and upgrading users with many of Adobe Photoshop CS’s most common uses.

The book is divided into seventeen parts, described as follows:

  1. Photoshop Basics.
  2. The Work Area.
  3. Color Essentials.
  4. Color Adjustments.
  5. Selections.
  6. Path Essentials.
  7. Transformations.
  8. Painting Essentials.
  9. Advanced Painting Techniques.
  10. Channels and Masks.
  11. Layer Essentials.
  12. Layer Styles and Shape Layers.
  13. Type.
  14. Filters.
  15. Automations.
  16. Print Essentials.
  17. For the Web: ImageReady.

Knowing that a large percentage of Photoshop’s users are not designers, the book was written to serve a wide audience and does not assume a design training. Each of the 275 tasks not only shows how to accomplish the chosen issue but also includes a number of tips, notes, and cross-references to provide the reader with a bigger picture view.

Laaker and Schmitt co-authored the book during the 2003 calendar year. The book joins a select number of other titles in the 10 Simple Steps or Less line, which is a new Wiley title series.
