Does the book cover Photoshop Elements?

No. But check back soon for Photoshop Elements-Just the Skinny. Photoshop is the fully-featured program while Photoshop Elements is a slimmed-down edition. While the basic concepts are common to both programs, the differences in the user interfaces to Photoshop and Photoshop Elements are significant.

Which version of Photoshop is covered?

Photoshop-Just the Skinny teaches core Photoshop concepts and techniques and is applicable to all recent versions, CS through CS5. This 2nd edition was completely updated for CS4. But whether you have an older version of Photoshop or have just purchased CS5, this book will work for you.

How long will it take to read?

How does the purchase process work?
