BOOKS

Adobe has a new Photoshop set called Photoshop CS4, which contains Photoshop plus other major

 programs, all for the somewhat staggering list price of $1,800. The computer to run them will be cheaper. However, just in case you want to spring for a lifetime hobby, here are a couple of books just out:

  • “Adobe Photoshop CS4, One-On-One,” by Deke McClelland; $50, from oreilly.com. The author is a stitch, you might say, and an absolute master of Photoshop. If you go to his website, Deke.com, you can watch his somewhat frenetic rap video titled “101 Photoshop Tips in Five minutes.”
  • “Sams Teach Yourself Adobe Photoshop CS4 in 24 Hours,” by Kate Binder; $35 from informit.com/sams. We add this one to your library because she’s good and because Sams is always good.
