This book covers automating Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. I was mainly interested in actions for Photoshop. But I can see that when I am ready to work in Illustrator and InDesign this book will be the place to start. As Mr. Ralston points out actions are only the beginning of automating Photoshop. I have been hesitant to jump in and try some of the process that would make my work a bit quicker and less filled with drudgery but, with this book it is like having a teacher at the ready to help get you moving. If you come up against a road block, the tools to get moving are in the book. Plus what kind of tasks to automate and free your self from these repetitive boring tasks and get on with creativity.
"The Designer's Apprentice "is aimed at a professional's needs but I felt I benefited from many of the tips and hints in this book. The tutorials are step by step and easy to follow. The projects and scripts for this book can be downloaded so you can work on each project when you register the book at the website.
This is the kind of reference book you want to keep on your book shelf ready to use when you need it.
