I was recently able to purchase an unregistered copy of Photoshop CS2 for a decent price from eBay. However, I am not very familiar with a full-blown version of Photoshop. I have used academic versions in the past. I’ve searched the Internet looking for classes, books, tutorials, etc., but classes are generally very expensive, the online tutorials I’ve found don’t get very good reviews and there’s too many books to determine how helpful they may be for a novice user. One book that appeared to be very informative is Adobe’s Photoshop CS2 Classroom in a Book - http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-Photoshop-CS2-Classroom-Book/dp/0321321847. I really want to be able to use the majority of Photoshop’s functions as opposed to only 10% of them. Has anyone ever read Adobe’s Photoshop CS2 Classroom in a Book and/or used the tutorial CD? Anyone have suggestions for another “solution” to my “problem?” I want to thank you in advance for any advice you may be able to provide.
