Are you an independent graphic artist, designer or digital photographer: professional or amateur? If you are, then this book is for you. Author Deke McClelland , has done an outstanding job of writing a book that walks you through Photoshop just as if he was teaching you in a classroom or in a corporate consulting environment. McClelland, begins by showing you how to open an image on screen; use the improved Adobe Bridge to preview and organize you digital images; determine how a photograph was captured, add copyright information and keywords; and, rename multiple images in one fell swoop. Next, the author explores ways to crop, straighten, and resize digital photographs using a small, but essential collection of tools and commands. Then, he shows you how to select a region of an image; and, how to edit it independently of another region using Photoshop's magic wand, quick selection , lasso, and marquee tools; as well as, a few commands in the Select menu. The author continues by explaining how to use Photoshop's paint, edit, and healing tools to brush color and effects onto an image. Next, he examines the amazing power of using Photoshop layers to isolate and manipulate parts of your image. Then, he shows you how to control, adjust, and manipulate color and luminosity in your images. The author continues by explaining the intricacies of Photoshop's most useful filters and how to use smart objects to apply effects nondestructively. Next, he shows you how to use Photoshop's distortion tools to bend, bloat, nip, tuck, squish, and reposition the subjects of your images. Then, the author examines the Photoshop tools and features that are of particular use to professional photographers or serious amateurs who want professional results. He continues by showing you the world of masking, starting with automated techniques and then moving on to calculations and defining precision masks via the pen tool. Next, the author shows you how to use Photoshop's text and shape tools; as well as, ways to edit text and shapes by applying formatting attributes and transformations. Finally, the author covers topics related to inkjet printing, professional output, and CMYK color conversion. This most excellent book contains a few techniques that even the experienced Photoshoppers don't know. You'll have to read the book to find out what they are!!.

This book is actually a textbook for a college class I'm taking. It's really great - easy to understand and apply. My only criticism is that, sometimes, too much is already done for you (in the project steps) and you don't know why the author chose what he did (e.g., numerical color settings, opacity level, etc.).
