Overview

This must-have guide goes right to the heart of Photoshop CS3-what has changed, what is new, and how you can get the most out of the features as quickly as possible. Rather than sift through hundreds of pages detailing every last Photoshop feature and function (both old and new), you can go directly to the new features that interest you the most and get the explanations you desire in classic Ben Willmore style-intuitive, crystal clear, and in-depth. By focusing on a single topic-what's new in this version-the award-winning author provides precisely what experienced Photoshop users have been clamoring for, in exactly the depth they demand. After reading this book-even if you've been using CS3 for a while-don't be surprised to hear yourself say, "I didn't know CS3 did that!" In-depth coverage of every new feature in Photoshop CS3 Standard Edition, including full chapters dedicated to Bridge, Camera Raw, interface changes, layers, adjustments, and tools. Quickly learn what's been moved, renamed, or eliminated from the previous version, making your transition to CS3 as painless as possible. If you have a working knowledge of Photoshop CS2, this book is for you. It's designed to get you up to speed with the new features in CS3 in the most efficient and useful way possible. Easy to read for upper-level beginners through advanced, but not designed for absolute beginners.

What People Are Saying


“Ben Wilmore is the clearest and most concise Photoshop teacher I know. His book is on the top ten list of Photoshop books I recommend to every beginning Photoshop student.”
—George DeWolfe, Senior Editor, ViewCamera and Camera Art magazines  (www.georgedewolfe.com)

“Ben’s sessions at PhotoshopWorld are always standing room only. His latest book provides ample reason as to why he’s so popular. He breaks down the complex and arcane side of Photoshop into something that is understandable. And few things are more fun than becoming better at Photoshop. It’s a great book.”
—Jim Workman  
Publisher, PhotoshopUser magazine (www.photoshopuser.com)

“Thanks to Ben Willmore’s Up to Speed, the journey from one Photoshop version to another has never been faster or easier. Adobe should give this book to every user who buys a copy of Photoshop.”
—George Lepp, columnist, Outdoor Photographer magazine and founder, The Lepp Institute  (www.theleppinstitute.com)

“Ben has a real gift for teaching Photoshop, and the uncanny ability to make difficult concepts seems absolutely simple. I have every book Ben’s ever written, and when he comes out with a book, I buy it! Ben has a way of cutting to the chase and explaining things in a way that just make sense. His approach to training has won him legions of fans, and this book continues his tradition of making Photoshop easy and understandable. If you want to really dig under the skin of Photoshop’s amazing new features, this is the book to buy! Highly recommended!”
—Scott Kelby, President, National Association of Photoshop Professionals (www.photoshopuser.com)
