This is the best book on the market at a GREAT price
This is the absolute BEST book I've seen on Photoshop 6. I reviewed what feels like 100's of books on the subject and NONE of them told me how to do everything I needed to do - except, Photoshop 6 Complete by Sybex. The price of the book can't be beat either. Other books that didn't have half as much information in it cost 2 and 3 x's MORE! I love this book and recommend it to all my friends. This book has taught me how to do things that I needed to know how to do yesterday.

Both book jacket and the book say you can download images from the sybex.com site which are used as samples in the book lessons. Unfortunately that is not true. The Sybex site only has images from a couple of chapters. Three out of 27 chapters!! You need to have your own catalogue of all kinds of pictures available which match the book lessons in order to use the book. What a waste of money. The publisher should refund everyone's money who bought this book under false pretenses.

What A Bargain!!...Or Is It?
A 900 page Photoshop book for a really low price. Seems like an unbeatable bargain. Forget the fact that it seems to be printed on paper three grades below newsprint. Pay no attention to its external dimensions, which are smaller than most hardback novels. Although it's natural to be skeptical about any book that has "complete" in its title, lets ignore that. The key question is: What's inside the book?
Why did I get such a déjà vu feeling when I started to thumb through the it? Turning to the table of contents I soon realized why some of the material seemed so familiar. The entire book is made up of chapters from other books! Do you own the book Mastering Photoshop 6? Well six chapters of that book show up in this one. All in all about 8 books were raided in order to compose this one volume.
Now if you don't own any of those 8 books, then by all means consider buying this one. It does have a lot of useful information in it, and it certainly won't require you to take out a three-year loan to pay for it. I do own a couple of the other books, however, and so I feel a bit cheated.
