Good dessert/baking cookbooks with plenty of pictures?
Can anyone recommend some dessert cookbooks that includes pictures for a large portion of the recipes?
I'm pretty new to baking/desserts so it really helps to be able to see what the final product should look like.
Instructional cookbooks with step-by-step pictures that show you how to do things would be really helpful as well

Nick Malgieri's latest book called Bake! would be a good instructional book that has many photos per recipe illustrating the technique as well as the finished product. His excellent book, Modern Baker, has a photo for just about each recipe. I concur with hotoynoodle that the Dorrie Greenspan is great as well.
There are some excellent photos in the old Time-Life "Good Cook" series. Available on eBay, if you don't mind used. My "Pies & Pastries" volume is about one half instructions (illustrated in color) and one half recipes.
4th vote for Dorie's book - one of my favorite baking books of all time.
'Bon Appétit Desserts' has fantastic recipes though not a photo for every one.
David Lebovitz's 'Ready for Dessert' has many photos though again not one for every recipe but the recipes are gorgeous.
Nigella Lawson's 'How to be a Domestic Goddess' covers all kinds of baking and there is more or less a photo for every recipe.
None of these have step-by-step instructions but they are all straightforward books.
