This book isn't intended to be read from beginning to end like a mystery; it's a reference. Drop into it whenever you need a hand getting some pesky technique to work right. This book is organized to reflect the overall order in which you'd normally be working with digital images; feel free to look up any topic in the index and go right to that chapter to find out what you want to know.
To make things even easier, processes are broken down into step-by-step workflows (gotta love that word), with a bunch of actual Photoshop screen-shots and photos to provide visual cues. If you want to skip right to the part on using Bridge (Part II), go ahead! Want to see how to process images in Camera Raw (Part III)? You can skip to that step, too. I've also offered detailed workflows for making overall corrections, edits, and preparing images for output in Photoshop (Part IV). Consider this book an end-to-end guide for using Photoshop and Camera Raw to transform your raw images into exactly what you want to see.
