Guide Review - Photoshop 7.0 Essential Tips by Shangara Singh (PDF eBook)

Photoshop 7.0 Essential Tips is described as "over 250 no nonsense, stripped to the bone tips that look into the nooks and crannies of the interface, tools, palettes, dialog boxes, layers, filters, actions, and much more." That's an accurate description; it's just too bad it's only available as an eBook and not a printed book. There are lots of useful, time-saving tricks here I didn't know about. Most tips include illustrations. You'll need to scale it to about 200% for comfortable on-screen reading. Now with embedded bookmarks, you can skim the tips and quickly click directly to the one you want. Printing it yourself will cost you at least 70 sheets of paper and ink. At only US$12.50, I'm sure you'll get your money's worth out of it.
