Welcome to Adobe®Photoshop®CS2 Classroom in a Book. Whether you just purchased your first digital camera and want to learn the basics of the world’s leading imaging software application, or you’re a graphic designer who spends six hours a day in Photoshop and you need to maximize your productivity, this book is for you.

In the 16 lessons of this book, you will learn everything from compositing images into artistic montages, to processing camera raw digital photographs, to producing Web animations. We’ve consolidated content from the previous edition, offering a streamlined, hands-on training course that will teach you Photoshop fundamentals, as well as how to use many of the exciting new features in Photoshop CS2, in concise, colorful, comprehensive exercises.

Plus, we’ve included some fun stuff—for example, Photoshop guru Russell Brown will show you how to experiment with layers while making a profound fashion statement in his entertaining QuickTime movies. (Be sure to check out his QuickTime movies on the book’s CD.) In addition, Photoshop evangelist Julieanne Kost shares some of her best power-user tips, and we’ve included some “extra-credit” assignments for students who want to challenge themselves further. (For details about what’s new in this edition of the book, see page 2.)

Good luck and have fun!

Andrew Faulkner and Anita Dennis
