    Fun Topic for Important Photoshop Techniques

    Although the topic is geared to glamour photography, all Photoshop devotees can benefit from learning how to work with skin tones and other areas involving live models of any type. As a web designer, I learned how to retouch my shots to make them more vibrant and flattering.

    This is a great book for those that want to expand their basic Photoshop skills. It has plenty of examples and step by step instructions to clearly illustrate important features of Photoshop's many image enhancing possibilities. It is required reading for my digital student photographers at The Creative Circus in Atlanta GA. I highly recommend this tutorial textbook.
