Great Resource for Web Developers
Sooner or later most web developers will be approached by family members with the idea of setting up a web site to share all those old family photos. You may have even volunteered to do this. After all, it sounds like fun, until you are faced with hundreds of photos that have lain in attics, garages, basements and barns for the last 50 years. Getting these photos into some sort of presentable condition is not just a matter of scanning and sizing. This kind of work calls for an expert, and in this book Katrin Eismann does her best to make you one. Eismann¿s book is not for Photoshop novices: you will need to know how to use the tools and work with layers. But everything else you need to restore photographs, even torn, stained, faded and moldy ones, is presented clearly and in great detail here. You will get the most out of it if you take the time to download the practice images from her web site and go through the step by step instructions. Even if you have considerable experience with Photoshop you will find new tools and techniques. The retouching sections are very interesting to just about anyone who works with photos. Here you will learn how to remove blemishes, wrinkles and unwanted pounds as well as any plastic surgeon. Photoshop Restoration & Retouching, 2nd Edition is not just a ¿how to¿ book, but a ¿why¿ book, and a terrific way to learn how to work with photographic images of all kinds.Was this review helpful?

Fantastic Photoshop Book
I do not have enough superlative words to describe this book. I thought the first edition was great, but this second edition is even better. If you are interested in restoration, and also want a better understanding of the various techniques explained in a straight-forward manner, this is the book for you.Was this review helpful?

If you own a camera, buy this book.
This book is fantastic! If you have a camera, and you've taken a lousy picture (who hasn't) and you wish you could fix the mistake.... this is your book! This book is gorgeous full color, detailed, and very easy to understand. Katrin Eismann has a wonderful writing style. She will show you step by step how to fix anything from removing a pimple, a scalping, lousy lighting to restoring an old torn picture of granny.Was this review helpful?
