"Photoshop-Just the Skinny Second Edition is an excellent resource for those just beginning in photo editing and those who want to learn to improve their skills. 4.5/5 stars" Guide to Photography

Clear and Concise

Photoshop–Just the Skinny (2nd Edition) is designed to be easy to start and quick to get through. You’ll get just what you need in a little over 200 pages. The book doesn’t cover everything and doesn’t show you 50 different ways to do the same thing. Instead, it focuses on what you need, and only that, to develop an initial mastery.

Formatted for Ease of Use

Each chapter is only four pages long and fully explains a single core concept or technique. So you don't have to set aside two hours to wade through long involved chapters to make any progress. You’ll find straightforward “just do this” advice along with lots of useful tips.

Master the Basics, Independent of Your Version

This 2nd edition is was written with CS4 but covers techniques applicable to any CS version, including CS5. Over 750 graphics, screen shots, and images are combined together in an uncluttered, easy-to-read format.
