    I got it from amazon.com. Yep, quite user friendly, shows u how to achieve certain effects step by step with pictures. Not sure if Kinokuniya or Borders got or not though.

    There are a few books by this guy, Scott Kelby who is the editor-in-Chief of the Photoshop Magazine published by the Nat'l Assn of Professional PS Users (or something similar) in USA. One of them is the "Dirty Tricks" mentioned earlier in the thread. He has, I think 3-4 books on PS7, the latest is "The PS Book For Digital Photographers". Highly recommeneded as he writes by way of eg meaning you use any photo you have & run thru the steps to get the effect. You do not have to know PS but it works and each time in future, follow the same steps. Of course you learn to apply the sreps somewhere else instead. I believed the library has all his books.

    I am using this book called, "Adobe Photoshop 7.0 studio techniques". by Ben Willmore. It is depend on personal preference whether you will like it or not. Personally, I found this book quite "basic", nothing fancy, but more "theorectical" than most "practical" books.

    Photoshop for photographers 7.0. Around $45-$50, at Funan Computer Bookshop.

    Another book called 50 Photoshop techiques for retouching photograph (or something - can't remember exact title) - this one I found in the library. Good place to start.

    You don't need the book anyway, since you ever mentioned photoshop is cheating, and you don't want to be a cheater.

    please take your opinions elsewhere - no point making a fool out of yourself.

    Eh, he was stating a fact; I did recall you said you didn't like to use photoshop or something to that effect.

    Try Real World Adobe Photoshop 7. Very good book. Can borrow it from the library first before you decide to buy.
