The Fun Stuff This is the place to find or share information on books about Photoshop techniques. There are a lot of good books out there to teach you techniques and to get the creative juices flowing. I will add more as I have time and I hope if you know of a good book you will start a thread and share it here.

Default Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Dummies ~ Yes!

This is a great book, and I haven't even begun to plumb its sweet, informative depths. I got it for my birthday, and I've been too busy since then to really study it.
If you want to discuss this book, please continue on this thread and I know it'll be fun to share...
Thanks!

I don't have this particular Dummies book, but to me they all seem the perfect way to get started. They're simple and fun and well worth the money.

Default Yes

this is a good book for beginners and advanced users alike.
It starts with the basics, then progresses to the how-tos for special effects. So,yes, I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to work with PSCS2.
Cheers
