From Barnes & NobleHere's a Photoshop book that illuminates advanced features through real-life, plain-English stories and metaphors, not jargon. Here's a book totally focused on practical production: one that answers the crucial questions you haven't even thought of yet. Ladies and gentlemen: meet Ben Willmore's Adobe Photoshop CS3 Studio Techniques.
Willmore's goal is to get you to really understand what Photoshop's doing. He succeeds up front, in his "working foundations" section, bringing deep new insight to CS3's tools, palettes, selection techniques, and layers. He succeeds in Part II, guiding you gently up the learning curve with curves, color management, color correction, manipulation, sharpening, and Raw. It all pays off in Part III, where he demystifies sophisticated tools ranging from Layer Masks to CS3's new Vanishing Point. Oh, and don't miss the five bonus chapters on CD-ROM. Yes, you want this book. And need it. Bill Camarda, from the January 2008 Read Only
