"I found this book easy to read. It has clear, easy to follow instructions that will allow someone with minimal Photoshop experience to make great enhancements to their photos. There are 49 recipes that are highlighted with colorful examples that will have you saying, "I never knew you could do that!""
-- T. Michael Testi, Blogcritics Magazine

"I'm certainly no Photoshop expert, and maybe that's why I really enjoyed this book. Blending is a subject where I have a lot of trouble, and this book did an excellent job of showing a "Before" picture, shows how to perform the specific blend, and then shows the "After" picture. This type of step-by-step process with pictures (especially for Photoshop) really helps and makes the various "recipes" very intuitive and easy to follow."
