Photoshop CC: The Missing Manual cover

For the last several months I've been hard at work updating our best-selling Photoshop book, Photoshop CC: The Missing Manual. I'm pleased to say it's the best book we've done yet and it includes a slew of new techniques as well as a new chapter on creating 3D text and objects. A labor of pure love, this beauty hits the book shelves early June in time for Adobe's software release. To pre-order your copy from Amazon, follow this link.
