I just ordered the Photoshop CS3 a couple of days a go. I have the G9 and have been pilling up photos to work with. However, I was overwhelmed when I installed a trial of CS3. Too many tools, too many options. Before I stray too far .. I need some advice. Where do I start ? Whats the best way to use this monster ? :rolleyes:

Get a good book or two.... People on this forum will have plenty of suggestions as many are very accomplished with PS. I think there is a thread regarding your needs.

im a book geek.. i would get the photoshocp cs3 book for digital photographers by scott kelby.

it breaks it down barney style so you can do all of those things that you wish you could do. it goes step by step.. and i would highly recomend it if you have the program, and are overwhelmed by it..

i was, so i bought it. and i am a happy little kid again.

CS3 is not comparable to C1.
C1 is a raw converter. Comparable to ACR.

PSCS3 is a pixel editor.

Well I am pretty green when it comes to CS3 but the one thing I have found that I use a lot is the Level adjustments (Ctrl + L) it made a big difference in my photos

Start with the basics. *levels, curves and/or shadow/highlights. *hue/saturation *unsharp mask or smart sharpen *printing!

As said: start with the basics.
There are also a *lot* of (free) podcasts and other tutorials on the net.

A few of the well known include:
The Russell Brown Show (external link)

http://www.photoshopki​llertips.com/ (external link)


Also there is the FAQ from the top of these forums, which contain, among more: Post processing tutorial list and PS Links for everyone.

Should keep you in reading for a while ;)
