Photoshop: Getting Started

I use Lightroom and so far haven’t taken the plunge to learn Photoshop. I am now looking for some advice on books or videos that could teach me the Photoshop basics. I think I will still use Lightroom for raw processing, dodging and burning, and so on, so I particularly need to understand the selection tools and layers. Can you suggest something? - Robert

There are some answers waiting for you on the AP forum already, but I would add Martin Evening’s Adobe Photoshop for Photographers books to your list. For me, the appeal of this longrunning series of version-specifc Photoshop books is that it’s tailored to photographers, so you won’t find yourself wading through pages of non-essential tools or finding that everything’s crammed in to make sure that every item is covered.
