    Photoshop Tips and Tricks

    Are you a designer who swears by Photoshop? If so, Photorealist Techniques gives you an in-depth, step-by-step guide on taking 2-D images and making them into wonderful 3D Photorealistic pictures. Each example has screen shots as well as step-by-step instructions on how to create the various objects discussed. You will be able to create objects like wooden boxes, metal handles such as those found on a filing cabinet and even RAIN! You are also given help on light, distortion and perspective. The pages are oversized for easier reading ¿ 9.5¿ wide by 10¿ high. There is a nine-page index. But the best part is there is NO CD included with this book. I said the best part is no CD. Why? Because this makes you walk through the steps to learn the techniques. No copying from a CD someone else made. For $50.00, this would be an easy to use guide to have on your library shelf.

    Great Book, Wonderful Work

    This is a guy who clearly 'gets it' and I just loved this book. It inspired me to use the real power of the software in very different ways, but it's not geared for the novice---If you're looking for a cookbook or a step-by-step 'how-to' you may be somewhat frustrated. You need to already know how to handle the software fairly well to follow the processes he outlines. There's a reason it's in the Digital Masters series. Those of us who do this all day long need someone to fire up our engines once in a while....but we don't need (or want) a tedious review of the options on the standard toolbar--or a CD full of exercises. Monroy has a great grasp of both traditional media and digital media, and clearly understands the similarities and differences. For me, one of the most fascinating sections is the visual history of the development of increasingly sophisiticated graphics software and the resulting realism and complexity of the images that could be produced... Looking at Monroy's extraordinary work and understanding a bit about the way it was created is a chance to get a glimpse into the creative process of someone who fully understands the art of painting with light.

    Bert Monroy: Talented -- Creative ¿ Innovative

    I want to thank Mr. Monroy for sharing a wealth of information with the world. I work with digital photography and computers on a daily basis and sincerely appreciate the wealth of creativity and innovation that Bert Monroy has poured into this book. For me, the book effectively ties together the gap between artistic principles, digital photography and digital art. It is filled with ideas that I can use to enhance and add realism to my photos. I¿m very impressed with Bert¿s talent. He devotes an entire chapter to perspective, another chapter to lighting and a third chapter to shading. He also covers working with wood and metal. And then there¿s the chapter on reflections to top off the book. I love it!!! This book may be a bit advanced for the Barnes & Noble PhotoShop Basics Class, but I would hope that even a beginner would look at this book with an open mind regarding its potential. I think even a beginner would gain a lot from this book if he or she takes time to absorb the content. Once again, my thanks to Bert Monroy! The book is exactly what I was looking for and much more. dmc

    giving away secrets ?

    a paperback with too much space wasted on 'forewords' etc and no examples or exercises on a cd or even a floppy disc. there are several interesting sections in the book but nothing that justifies the price of $50.--. fifteen to twenty dollars, in my opinion, would be about right. and by the way, bert isn't really giving away any 'secrets' !
