The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby is an excellent book.

Think he gives a lot of ideas esp for digital photographs, repairing, enhancing etc.

Good buy. You can get it at Borders but its a bit pricey. Alternatively you can try acmabooks.com.

One book I REALLY like is the Photophop 7 Down & Dirty Tricks by... again yours truly Scott Kelby.

I own a few titles written by him, and basically anything about PS that's written by him is a safe bet. Just depending on your needs.

I paid quite a bit for it. Think it was like $80. You can get it from acmabooks for ard 60 plus. Whatever the case, its a good book.

The down and dirty trick books is an okay book according to a friend. Not too fabulous. Scott Kelby has written a couple of books. Maybe you can take a look at which ones fit your needs. He wrote one for Photo Elemets also.

You can check them out at Borders. They have a pretty wide selection.

Funan bookshop should be at funan right?
Unlike the sembawang book store which is in AMK.

Which part of Funan?

Thanks in advance!

if you havent bought the books yet, i suggest you give kinokuniya and borders a call to compare the price, i reserved and picked up the two books from different places

or look under amazon, used and new, the price is very reasonable alot cheaper than Singapore if you are more patient than me, you could order from there, i have a U.S. address that could forward parcels to Singapore using DHL, it should only take about 1.5 weeks to arrive. (the DHL cost should be around USD5-USD10) if you would like me to help, just let me know.
