Many of the alternative Photoshop materials on the market function like recipe books. They presume some familiarity with Photoshop and give tips and techniques, including specific numbers or levels to enter in order to achieve a given effect. Graphically, the book feels well designed, filled with images, screen shots, before-and-after versions, and sidebar facts. With this latest edition, Evening eschews including a DVD as he has in the past, instead putting material online, including printable. Full access to the site requires a login and password included with purchase. With pages of material already in the book, some readers may be intimidated by the idea of going online and getting hundreds more, but it's there if you want it. Thankfully, Evening can be playfully self-aware of his potential for a dry technical tone, such as when he insists on the correct spelling of raw not RAW files but acknowledges that it is a 'pedantic point'. Evening imparts much of the vocabulary and menu navigation towards the beginning, and then assumes increased fluency as he goes. That said, with some prior knowledge, intermediate and advanced types could easily take a 'flip to the chapter you need' approach because the book is well-indexed. Ultimately, whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, if you want a thorough and up-to-date understanding of the photo industry's major photo-editing program, I recommend giving Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Photographers a close look.
