Hey Taylor,

What exactly are you interested in learning? Photoshop is an extremely extensive program which has many uses. I assume you want to learn more about the tools needed for editing photos, but, if there is something more specific you are looking for there are a lot of places available for free online which have step by step instructions on how to do certain effects.


Adobe Photoshop CS2 A-Z: Tools and Features Illustrated Ready Reference
List: $24.95 ISBN-10: 0240520025

Great color paperback book which lists all the tools in alphabetical order. It has tons of color images which help demonstrate what each tool does.

The list price is the price which was what was on the back of the book. That is probabaly the price I paid for it at the University bookstore but I'm sure you could find a copy on Amazon for much less.

Try Scott Kelby's books:

the Adobe photoshop CS3 book for digital photographers

Scott Kelby's 7-point system for Adobe Photoshop

Real-world techniques for making your photos look better, without the clutter of trying to stuff every CS3 feature into the text.

Default Martin Evening Photoshop for Photographers

Martin Evening has produced a good book on CS3, specically aimed at photographers rather than graphic artists

BTW CS4 iss just about to hit the market.
