Photoshop CC: The Missing Manual is the most comprehensive Photoshop book available, focusing on practical techniques you’ll use every day—without jargon. It also teaches essential theory such as color use and typography, and includes tons of entertaining exercise files. (Scott Kelby, the founder of NAPP and editor/publisher of Photoshop User magazine, calls it “the new Photoshop bible.”)
Some people have a gift for language; some have a gift for clarity; some have the gift of understanding complex concepts. Rarely do you find all three in one person, and even more rarely is that person the author of a Photoshop book. Lesa Snider is one of them.
