    I would really like to be able to use photoshop to the best of it's ability. Help menu's are all well and good, but i never seem to get on very well with them, so i thought a book might be a good way to go.

    At the moment i don't have PS but can use it on my universities computers and thought this would be a good way to see if it worth me spending the money for my home mac.

    Has anyone got any recommendations as to good books? There seem to be quite a few out there, but i have no idea which ones are better than others. Also, if i learn all the features for CS2 i am assuming CS3 won't be dissimilar?

    Not a book, but a website chock-full of tutorials on Photoshop:

    Scott Kelby's books on Photoshop are good, and I also like ADOBE PHOTOSHOOP CS2 ONE-ON-ONE.
