Book Review: The Complete Guide To Photoshop's Layers by Matt Kloskowski

Layers BookThis book isn't a beginners guide about how to use Photoshop, You'll get the most out of it if you already know your way around, but want to know more about Photoshop's most powerful feature - layers.

I purchased this book at the same time as Scott Kelby's Photoshop System, and I'm glad I did. What worked for me was to read Scott's book first, to give me a solid grounding in basic Photoshop Editing, then I read Matt's book to find out more about layers.

There's a lot more in here than the average photographer needs. We have chapters about type, graphics, etc, but have patience and work through his examples and the techniques will stick - so that when you're working on an image you'll know how to achieve that look you want.

Not for beginners, but recommended for anyone who knows a bit about Photoshop, and wants to take their skills one step further.

Thanks, Rob.
