Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Like Photoshop itself, Martin Evening's Adobe Photoshop for Photographers books keep getting better. If you're making the plunge with Photoshop CS3 -- especially if you're a photographer, but even if you aren't -- you'll find his new CS3 book breathtakingly useful.

Evening's roots are in fashion and beauty photography, two areas that really give Photoshop a workout. While he's become increasingly well known for his books, he's still first and foremost a working commercial photographer: someone who uses Photoshop to create better work, offer more services, and earn more money. That perspective shows through on every page: this book is relentlessly practical. (It's also gorgeous, filled with Evening's own full-color work, and that of his colleagues. Plus, there's a new DVD packed with images and video tutorials.)

Thanks to Evening's practical perspective, you'll learn when and why to use CS3's new features, not just how. Evening illuminates Camera Raw 4's many new image adjustment controls, even showing how to custom-calibrate your own camera for your own studio environment. You'll learn how to use Align Image to register two or more portrait images and create a merged composite that uses the best parts of each. There's guidance on using Photoshop CS3's Quick Selection and Refine Edge tools more effectively (while you can refine a selection's edges using dialog slider controls, try converting it to a layer mask first). And if you're fortunate enough to own CS3's "Extended" version, Evening helps you explore Image Stacks, which can automatically remove individuals from a photograph (if only they'd had that in Stalin's day).

We've only scratched the surface. Evening systematically covers darkroom effects, correction and image repair, layer effects, all of it. Especially welcome: one of the world's most intelligible, usable discussions of color management. Bill Camarda, from the September 2007 Read Only

"...investing in this 665-page book, diligent intermediates and advanced Photoshop users will feel reassured they've bought the definitive troubleshooting text." Photography Monthly (August 2007)

Reviews of the CS2 edition:

"One of the best and most comprehensive guides available...Each section includes examples with before and after images; we found some of the ideas really inspiring...If you are a photographer using CS2, this book is a must buy." - Which Digital Camera

"This one book excellently covers all aspects of Photoshop CS2 and presents them clearly from the photographer's point of view." - Advanced Photoshop

"Still very much the daddy of all Photoshop books...the quality of illustration and production are top rate...if this book is impressive then the accompanying CD-ROM is a delight." - British Journal of Photography

"Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Photographers by Martin Evening is like the bible...it contains everything you would want to know about the creative use of Photoshop for a Macintosh or PC...a must-have guide." - Amateur Photographer

"The book is organized in a very clear and helpful color coding scheme...I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent volume. Evening covers a lot of ground and I want more from this expert and author... Highly recommended for anyone interested in real-world imaging processes and techniques." www.kickstartnews.com

"Clearly, this book will satisfy the most demanding Photoshop junkie... Martin Evening is a professional photographer who really understands his audience. It's amazingly comprehensive, and pitched to be suitable for all levels of users, from experienced pros to people with a more basic grasp of the software... There is an excellent mix of images that add relevance and credibility to the overall professional level of this book... This book could prove to be one of the most useful books you'll ever buy." - Digital Photographer

"Covering both Mac and PC, this is a great buy for the photographer who wants to get to grips with the latest features." - Digital Creative Arts

"The book does a great job of introducing all the features that are new to CS2. The tips on colour correction and setting up Photoshop for photographic work are invaluable. Even the most hardened Photoshop pro will find useful insights and tips here. The section on colour workflow is particularly good and one of the most lucid insights into the confounding world of reproducing accurate colour... Martin Evening's book is probably the best Photoshop manual available. Well priced and thoroughly informative." - MacFormat

"Richly illustrated with photos and screen grabs, this is an invaluable guide for anyone serious about Photoshop at a very reasonable price." - What Digital Camera

"The best just got better... For those who have the first CS version of the book, the decision to upgrade will depend on how much emphasis you place on the new features, however for others who are contemplating which book to buy, look no further - this book has it all... a must buy for every aspiring digital photographer and Photoshop user." - Timeless Digital Imaging

"Martin Evening has produced an indispensable guide to all of the new features and tricks... This is an easy to follow and well written guide." - Computer Arts

"...like the best software manual that you might expect with expensive computer programs, but actually rarely receive... (it is)beautifully illustrated. Evening's book - with its tutorial CD - manages that rare achievement, of hand-holding the fast-learning novice and old pro alike through some pretty involved procedures." - Stills Audio Motion

"This is one of the better general Photoshop books out there, with less about filters and more about using Photoshop to perfect images for fine art or adveritising." -Photo Techniques (2008)

    The book is fabulous! Just remember take one concept at a time, don't overload. This is not the type of book to read cover to cover. Learn one concept or study one section at a time. Just leafing through I came across things I would never have picked up on unless I took a course. Great stuff.
