The people at SitePoint have released their Photoshop book The Photoshop Anthology: 101 Tips, Tricks and Techniques book for FREE as a downloadable PDF. I’m a bit fond of the book, especially in the immediately-available PDF format. And for the next 14-days you can download your very own PDF copy for FREE. Did I say it was FREE? Cause it’s free.
From my previous review of the book:
The Photoshop Anthology is very well written with great, plain-English explanations, allowing you to dive right into Photoshop’s vast feature-set. I was especially impressed with the immediate attention to keyboard (and other) shortcuts which are re-iterated throughout the book, which, when mastered, can increase your Photoshop productivity immensely.
