Adobe Photoshop is central to almost all photography workflows today. Each new version fo the software is a milestone in the development of this imaging behemoth, and 2010's release of CS5 is no exception.

Photographers often feel overwhelmed when starting with Photoshop; the sheer number of tools and options make it difficult for the novice. There is no shortage of instructional books, yet very few direct the user to the most significant aspects of the program in a way that reflects a real workflow for the photographer.

Adobe Certified Instructor Steve Laskevitch has leveraged his experience as a teacher and practitioner to create a step-by-step guide that provides a clear and effective workflow for editing photographs in the latest version of Photoshop and its companions Bridge, Camera Raw, and Lightroom. Focusing on the critical elements of the workflow rather than covering every arcane feature, the Handbook is designed to get you working quickly in these applications.

Unfortunately this book is copyright protected in such a way that you cannot use speech to text to read the information. Why companies do this I do not understand, one the main reasons to have an electronic version of a book is to be able to use  text to speech. The illustrations of the screenshots are so far out of focus that they cannot be read. I wish the publishers would get over it I just want to read their book I'm not interested in stealing it.
