Also included are 3 bonus sessions of “Paths to Great Photos.”

Session 02 : Adobe Bridge
A thousand-and-one hidden things that you can do in the new Adobe Bridge; including Batch format conversions, scaling and Camera Raw adjusting, saving Search Collections, Keywording, Copyrighting, Renaming and Ranking multiple images at once.
Session 03 : Camera Raw 3
If there's one area of Photoshop CS2 that's been supercharged in the most mind-bendingly practical and elegant way, it's the new Camera Raw. Learn how to automatically adjust not only one image, but thousands at a time - including Cropping, and Curves Adjustments, Ranking and Renaming, and outputting to different file formats - all without ever opening Photoshop.
Session 04 : L0ens Correction Filter
See how to use the new all-in-one filter that lets you perform not only Perspective corrections, but also fix Rotation, remove pincushion Distortion, Vignetting and Chromatic Aberrations.
Session 05 : High Dynamic Range (HDR)
The new Merge to HDR feature in Photoshop promises to dramatically extend the dynamic tonal range of what a photograph can potentially contain - if only you could understand how it works. In this session Davis will demystify and streamline the process of creating the one ultimate photographs from many variations.
Session 06 : Red Eye Correction
It doesn't get more simple than this, especially with insights from Jack - the new Red Eye tool.
Session 07 : Smart Sharpen

Session 08 : Noise Reduction
How to get the most out of the great new Reduce Noise filter - and why sometimes you may want to fall back on the provided Wow Color & Luminosity Noise Removal Action.
Session 09 : Smart Collage
Starting with a blank canvas, this session walks you through not only the basics of creating multi-layered template-based collages in Photoshop, but also how to take advantage of the wonderfully flexible characteristics of the new Smart Objects and Image Warp features to be able to produce elaborate variations on your creations almost instantly.
Session 10 : Image Warp
This project covers not only the basics of how the new Image Warp feature works, but how to combine it with the power of Smart Objects and Custom Shapes to be able to take any image - a pixel-based photographs or a vector-based illustration - and wrap it onto any other image (while still maintaining the ability to edit the image being warped - even in another application like Adobe Illustrator).
Session 11 : Vanishing Point
The sexy poster child of Photoshop CS2 - Vanishing Point, allows you to not only retouch OUT undesirerabiles in perspective, but also to retouch IN new material (whether other photos, type or illustrations) into the correct perspective of any existing scene.
