Photoshop X, Adobe's latest release of its powerful image-manipulation tool, continues to set the standard in the world of Web, print, and graphic design. Adobe Photoshop X Classroom in a Book is thoroughly updated to cover all the new features of Photoshop X, which have not yet been publicly announced, and ImageReady X, which ships with the program. After an introductory tour of the software, the book's 16 lessons with step-by-step instructions help readers create specific projects, and chapter review questions and answers reinforce these skills. The introductory lessons help new users become comfortable with the Photoshop interface. Then, using a building-block approach, the Adobe Development Team leads users into the more complex tasks of image editing and photo retouching. Production issues, color management, layer management, and Web graphics are also covered in short, focused lessons.
