Not for beginners, or is it?
This book can be very difficult to follow and frustrating if you do not already know the Photoshop interface and tools very well. The instructions are not very detailed which means you have to figure out how to do a lot of things on your own. The cover does say it is a "guide to advanced design features" but it documents the very basics (though not very clearly) so a good part of it might be a waste for advanced users. The book is done only in b/w so you have to imagine a lot of the effects.

Packed with great examples and advice
I read, use, and recommend Laurie Ulrich's other FX and Design book (on Dreamweaver) and decided to order this book as a result. I am so glad that I did. I already knew Photoshop pretty well, but didn't really know all that Photoshop can do to make images for the web. Now I do! If you need to use photos and create original graphics for web pages, you need this book. If you already use Photoshop, get this book. If you don't know Photoshop or are using another application to create web graphics, switch to Photoshop and get this book!
