  • I like the way it is presented, hour one is an introduction to the basics
  • In my opinion this quite a lot to learn and remember in an hour unless you do a lot of exercises and get it all down pat
  • I think the lessons are a little long and if you divided them in half you could retain them better
  • How to do layers is interesting, informative and handy to know

      I really like this book, like any other teach yourself book it’s not one hundred percent perfect but you can get a lot of information out of it and come out looking pretty much like a professional. This is not a difficult book to understand. The 24 hours does not refer to a day but rather an hour a day of reading, study and practice.

      Prepare to spend at least two hours for 24 lessons. I personally use the book to look


      up information on whatever project I happen to be working on and so far it’s done well by me.

      I like the way it is presented, hour one is an introduction to the basics. This gets you familiar with saving information, tools and their function, making selections, color and adjustment, painting and the different menus.

      In my opinion this quite a lot to learn and remember in an hour unless you do a lot of exercises and get it all down ...


      • pat. There is then a summery of everything you should have learned.

        Next comes questions and answers, followed by a quiz, the quiz also gives different exercises to practice what you have learned, you can also make up some of your own. This follows through with each lesson.

        I think the lessons are a little long and if you divided them in half you could retain them better. If you were diligent about learning what is offered by the end of the

        book you would have accumulated enough knowledge to go out and get a decent job.

        In my opinion it would take quite a bit more than an hour a day. The book has an extensive amount of knowledge packed in it and just learning how to convert photos into JPEG, GIF and PNG in hour 24 can get you some freelancing jobs on the internet or just for your own use.

        How to do layers is interesting, informative and handy to know.
