Any Photoshop Book to recommend?
Hi everyone I am a newbie in Adobe Photoshop. Would like to find a book which focus on the following technique:
a) Making the photo sharper
b) Reducing Noise
c) Make complexion smoother
d) Make people look thinner
Basically is there a Photoshop book which explain how to make a holiday photograph or potrait look nice, with steps by step instruction?
Alternatively is there any good Photoshop book to recommend? How much?

If anyone is tempted to buy Adobe Press books, Photoshop CS: Classroom in a Book is almost strictly a guide on how to access and use the functions in PS CS.
If you are more interested in more intermediate techniques and topics, can try the Photoshop CS: Studio Techniques book by Ben Willmore.
Some of the topics in the books:
- Understanding curves
- Colour management
- Colour correction
- Advanced masking
- Retouching etc etc
In my opinion, it's a pretty good book on digital workflow and process for those who are interested in getting more out of their pictures. ^^
