You’ll like the way Ben Willmore approaches Photoshop: “My approach is to use the same language that you use in everyday life to explain everything from the simplest feature to the most advanced techniques.” Imagine that: teaching Photoshop through stories and metaphors drawn from life, not technical jargon. Like they say in B-movies: It’s so crazy, it just might work!
It does. This is Photoshop for humans.
Rest assured, all the new stuff is here. You’ll start by getting control of your workspace and files once and for all: where to put all those palettes, and how to use Workspace Presets to automate different palette layouts for different tasks. There’s complete coverage of all those new Brushes options (tip shapes, scattering, and the new dual-tip brush, great for creating sponge effects).
You’ll find incredibly practical primers on selection, layers, and resolution; new techniques for preventing color shifts; a thoroughly revamped chapter on color correction (including coverage of the new AutoColor feature)... channels, retouching, typography, image slicing, optimization, and a whole lot more. Willmore has even done what was long thought impossible: he has demystified color management! Bill Camarda
