COOKING WITH PHOTOSHOP CS3!!
Are you an experienced Photoshop user or just a novice? If you are, then this book is for you. Author Tim Shelbourne, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that is an invaluable resource that you¿ll return to again and again. Shelbourne, begins by taking a look at the host of improvements to the way Photoshop looks and works in Version CS3, like: Smart objects, smart filters, multiple clone sources, refine edges, improved curves, and quick selection tool. Next, the author shows you how to make accurate selections, which is the key to the art of successful image manipulations. Then, he discusses how layers are the bedrock of successful image editing in Photoshop. The authors also focus on how to disable any in-camera sharpening and sharpening images in Photoshop after the event, as this gives you far more control over the final degree of sharpness in the image. He continues by explaining how Photoshop is not a true-vector based program, and because the terminology is rather confusing, you can think of vectors in Photoshop simply as paths--in essence, how the two things are one and the same. Finally, the author shows you how to use Photoshop¿s Lighting Effects filter. This most excellent book is a real bonus for those times when inspiration runs short or you need to pin down a particular effect. More importantly, this book is organized into different areas, each covering a particular genre of Photoshop recipes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
