User reviews about the book
Not worth the $$ yet.
The first problem is that the navigation is not intuitive. The major issue, however, is that something as basic as "How Do I Save As?" is not covered. I am cropping several photos out of a page (think high school yearbook). When I crop a photo out, how do I save this? I went to export what I thought I had edited only to find the original, uncropped version of the photo was exported. ??? If the book is updated, to include some typos, then it might be worth another look. Lesson learned: Download a sample version of a book first.
Very Poor Navigation
By Pacific Nick
Nothing in here you won't learn from the ToolTips in the App. Also, the navigation in the app is very poor, it's never clear how many pages into a section you are, and once you're at page 16/16 for example, you have to swipe all the way back to 1/16 to get out of that module.
Downloaded to my iPad
Will not even show up on my iPhone 4s
Just rehashing the tooltips
Expected a lot more than just saying what the tooltips do. From a long time Photoshop user I wanted details on editing beyond the basics. Can I saturate just yellow? What does preserve skin tones do? If you already know about photo editing then this book won't help you. If you don't know the basics about photo editing then this won't help you much either.
The navigation in this book is terrible. A lot of places say "tap almost anywhere to navigate". The problem is you can tap a lot of places and it does nothing, even places that seem obvious.
2 stars because the author seems enthusiastic but the book is really lacking.
