Adobe Photoshop: A Complete Course and Compendium of Features is your guide to creating, editing, and enhancing images and designs in Adobe Photoshop. Whether youre retouching a photograph, generating designs for social media, or combining images into composite creations, Photoshop is the tool for you—and this book will teach you what you need to know. This second edition has been fully revised and updated to cover the newest features of Photoshop.

First, in a complete Course that includes a new set of projects and lessons from the curriculum of Adobe Certified Instructor Steve Laskevitch, you'll learn the procedures needed to use Photoshop effectively and professionally. As you work your way through dozens of step-by-step lessons, youll be exposed to Photoshops rich feature set in practical contexts and learn best practices for optimal workflows. We’ll supply lesson documents and their assets to download, and you can use your course creations as starting points for your own projects.

The updated Compendium provides even greater depth of knowledge and serves as an in-depth reference you can rely on long after the course is done. Its eight easy-to-access sections help you uncover more of the how” and why” of Photoshop. With extensive cross references between the Course and Compendium, the two parts of the book complement each other perfectly.
