Design and even more design
There are many books about HTML and Web Design. But not many of those books give you an overview of the different design approaches that you can take to create a web site.
This book is the perfect guide for your web design. It contains even some parts on the different image formats and why to use them. It explains in detail the JPEG, TIFF and GIFF image formats.
The basics of Photoshop and GoLive are explained. With this knowledge you can greatly improve your productivity.
Further more it contains a impressive collection of screenshots which will give you the inspiration you need to create attractive web sites.
This book is a must have for every web designer, hobbyist or pro!

A good read but get a new proof-reader!
I got a fair bit from this book even after 7 years of web design and Photoshop experience. It does tend to lean rather heavily on graphic-intensive designs (as you would expect given that Photoshop is one of the 2 tools in the title) and gives less focus to designing tight HTML and small sites than I would have liked. That said, the sections on graphic optimisation are pretty useful and the overall book is a good read.
Photoshop features heavily but the GoLive information is fairly short and I get the impression this was probably hastily bolted on to an existing Photoshop-only text.
My only real complaint (which is a nit-pick) would be that this must be the worst proof-read book I have ever come across. Not only are there typos and spelling errors on pretty much every page but I actually found at least one editor's comment in the text too!

must have for all web designers
This is a fantastic book. Probably the best book in my collection. This isn't just a book full of tutorials for people to rip off. It provides a great deal of insight on web design. After reading this book you will always be able to come up with just the right look for your site. This book not only provides insight on how to come up with just the right look for your site but an in-depth look at file types, file sizes, vector graphics, web safe colors, and modem transfer speeds. This is a must have book for any serious web designer. Nice job Michael Baumgardt.
