I'm in the market for a book that details advanced photoshop techniques through tutorial instruction (much like the "Classroom in a Book" series). I have a good handle on the basics but feel like I can advance to the 'next level' with regard to my work in it.

I'm posting here to see what all of you recommend (for those that enjoy learning by following a book from start to finish).

Thanks in advance. :)

Thanks for the recommendation...my only concern with that book would be that it only focuses on color correct/photo touch-up. I'd also like to get into advanced logo design, effects, etc. Unless this books does in fact cover other such areas.

I'll look into this one...I assume you're posting these out of experience and not just humoring me on this thread I hope. :D

If you want to do logo design, I sould suggest you use Adobe Illustrator.
It works far better than Photoshop for Text and shapes.

I quite like Photoshop Studio Techniques for a broad but detailed look. It's not a tips and tricks book but is excellent for deepening your knowledge about the whys and wherefores.

Ditto - I have this one (and the others I recommended). ;)
