Overview

Written with professional and amateur photographers in mind, this guide approaches Photoshop from the technical and artistic standpoint of traditional photography. Rather than emphasizing how to distort or create unusual or outlandish digital effects, it explores the use of Photoshop to achieve very realistic photographic images. In-depth instruction illustrates how to duplicate traditional photography and darkroom effects and techniques such as hand coloring; dodging, burning, and tinting; and the use of alternative films, specialized filters, lenses, and camera accessories. Techniques can be used on a Mac or PC with any version of Photoshop 4.0 or later.
