    I just got CS4 Master Suite for Christmas from my family - I used my student discount plus I got 20% more off for working at the university. I was wondering if anyone knew of free eBook on how to use CS4 or even CS3 for that matter. I'm mainly interested in Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects.

    I have used google and came up with some video tutorials on youtube but they are still not as clear as i would like them to be. I'm really new to this stuff. And I am looking to create a website and would like to learn a lot by myself. I have a lot of free time.


    Thanks for the help.

    nice suite CS4

    I'm using the trial version at the moment...

    i would recommend you go to itunes, under podcasts and do a photoshop search... while not an ebook there are plenty of (mostly still free) video podcast from all the big names in graphic design/art... pixel perfect etc.

    2 years ago i got a macbook pro 17" and began downloading all the podcast i could find on photoshop now at 2000, downloaded to an external HD probably no more than 45 gigs worth.

    richard harrington is doing a lot of HD podcasts specifically on the new CS4

    good luck.

    W,

    several of the artist have books/ebooks, harrington for sure, it is featured on in their podcasts see my list below - some of these are no longer updating but they are all good, the red ones are particularly good... also russell brown is great!
