I am just a busy body. Don't buy any of these books you mentioned. As a beginner, my advice is to borrow books on Photoshop from the library and learn from the basis and work your way up. Since you had access to CS2 get books on CS2 with CD and slowly learn from there. I learn photoshop from books I borrowed form library. Believe me it help and save you a lot of money. Good luck

Second hand books for $80??? you must be joking. I can get these books at the library and after 3 weeks you can return it for safe keeping by the library. I bought this book "the photoshop cs2 book for digital photographers by scott kelby for only $54 at funnan. Sorry, you can keep your books.

100% agree with you :thumbsup: . wdEvA follow our advice and you won't be wrong. Try this book Adobe Photoshop cs2 one-on-one by Deke McClelland and its tutorial (with CD) is the best i came across. Try it and if you like it you can get it for $64 with GSt at funnan. This what I did.
