Overview

When it comes to digital imaging software, Adobe Photoshop has long set the standard. Thus, when a new version of the popular program appears, designers tend to stand up and take notice--hen get down to the serious business of learning about it! And for that, there's no better place to turn than the book from the people behind the product: Adobe Press' Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Classroom in a Book.

Using the same style of self-paced instruction employed in the best-selling previous edition, this comprehensive set of Photoshop lessons provides everything you need to dive into the world of print, Web, and graphic design with Photoshop 7. Completely revised to cover all of Photoshop 7's new features (including the new Healing Brush, color correction commands, and file management tools), the book starts with an introductory tour of the software and then progresses on through 16 lessons, covering everything from Photoshop's interface to more complex topics like color management, Web graphics, and photo retouching. You'll find step-by-step instructions for a variety of projects (from beginning to advanced) and review questions at the end of each chapter to reinforce what you've learned. Easy-to-use project files on the accompanying CD-ROM complete the package.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Adobe Photoshop 7.0 is impressive, both for its new creative resources and its new tools for streamlining design and production. Now’s a great time to upgrade, if you haven’t already -- especially if you’ve skipped a revision or two. When it’s time to learn Photoshop 7, one package gives you training created by Adobe and proven in Adobe classrooms and labs: Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Classroom in a Book.

Like every book in Adobe Press’s Classroom in a Book series, this one organizes its subject into a series of modular, hands-on lessons -- each one using images from the accompanying CD-ROM, and concluding with review questions to make sure you’re comfortable with what you’ve learned.

The authors begin with the updated Photoshop interface and work area, then present a completely new lesson on the new File Browser, one of Photoshop’s niftiest improvements. (Suddenly, you can rotate, rank, and sort thumbnails, easily create proofsheets, avoid opening digital images that aren’t worth your time; even read and use the XIF image data stored by your digital camera. Goodbye, “Open” dialog box -- and good riddance.)

You’ll also find an entirely new lesson on basic photo correction with Photoshop’s suite of automatic color correction tools -- including the new AutoColor tool, far better than AutoLevel for removing unwanted color cast.

Next, the authors cover selections using the marquee, lasso, magic wand, and move tools; and layers for isolating different elements of images for independent editing. Sounds like stuff you might know already, but -- especially in the case of layers -- even experienced users are likely to find some extremely useful nuggets here. After that, you’ll gain a solid understanding of masks and channels, features that many Photoshop users have never fully grasped.

Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Classroom in a Book includes updated coverage of painting that reflects Photoshop’s powerful new painting engine; a complete overview of color management; and a lesson on prepping images for two-color printing. It also contains extensive hands-on coverage of photo retouching, especially Photoshop 7’s new Healing Brush and Patch Tool -- way quicker than the old Clone Stamp.

Last but not least, you’ll find practical, step-by-step web graphics projects -- including walkthroughs of creating image maps and animations, optimizing images, and managing them with Photoshop 7’s unified Rollover palette.

Simply put, this Classroom in a Book is superior training for superior software. Bill Camarda

    I hate to nitpick, but....

    This was my first 'classroom in a book' experience, and an effective one it was. Once one downloads the eighteen lessons in the computer everything goes smoothly. However, on page 144 (Lesson 5 Layer Basics) the purple shading didn't change on step 8. On Page 229 (Lesson 8 Painting and Editing) you must click on Brush Tip Shape in the brushes pallette, then choose #112 on step 2. On page 304 (Lesson 10 Vector Masks, Paths, and Shapes) step 6 says 'Hold down Shift and draw a second circle within the first.' You should draw a second circle, then hold down Shift. When combining paths into a filled shape, upon following steps 1 and 2 one selected circle disappears. When drawing the second circle, hit the mouse, then hit shift, not vice-versa. Following step 6 on page 307, the outside circle is colored; the inside circle is gone. Getting started with Lesson 11 (page 334) we are told that we only need the toolbox and the layers pallette. You will need the history pallette as well. In Lesson 12 (page 365) you cannot move the pear image (step 3) because the layer is locked. Page 379: The ridges of the dandelion picture become distored after step 3. On step 4 you cannot find deselect in the Edit menu. Lesson 15 page 468: you cannot do step 3 if you don't select a slice first. Page 481, step 5: We are told to repeat steps 3 and 4; we should repeat steps 2, 3 and 4. page 483, step 4: the 'tech' lightens up when you remove the eye icon from the first 'h' in the layers pallette, not the second. You might have to move them around. Page 490: The format pop-up menu on step 2 is the Save as type pop-up menu. Lesson 16, Creating Animated Images for the Web: Whenever the Duplicate Current Frame button is clicked on the Animation palette (page 501, step 2, and throughout the lesson), an unnecessary layer is created in the layers palette, which should be trashed. Otherwise, everything's OK.
