Assuming that you want it mainly for photography, look into Scott Kelby's book "The Photoshop 7 Book for Digital Photographers". Another possibility is "Photoshop 7.0 Classroom in a Book" Otherwise, there is a plethora of books available at the bookstore -- go browse through them and pick one out that suits you.

Brad, if you feel the need to excuse your language afterwards, perhaps you should evaluate it beforehand.

Thanks i did go bu saw so many books that i decided to post this question. As stated i am a total novice in digital photography and hear that so much could be done with the photographs. I just want to spend time learning one program and this is going to be for personal use like editing exposure or cropping an image etc.
i will again look into these two books. I am looking for a user friendly book as well which gives clear answers.
Thanks

There are some great beginnerís tutorials online and you can progress to any process you are interested in. The online tutorials have the advantage of showing each step with controls and intermediate photos. Then go to the retouching forum at dpreview and start reading posts. Anything you donít understand like certain masks or hi pass filters just look up a tutorial Ė there are surely several on just about anything.

Good place to start: http://graphicssoft.about.com/librar.../bllps5out.htm

Hello,

You might want to also try the Total Training video collection.Pretty cool stuff. Most of which you may never use, but it's the one time you do that justifies the purchase.They take you from novice to pro in the comfort of your chair.

Anyone have any comments on Photoshop CS vs. Photoshop 7. Have not upgraded yet and was wondering if it is worth the extra cash!
