Preface

Graphics programs enable you to explore your creativity. That's why it's important for any book that teaches how to use a graphics program to include hands-on exercises for practice. Learning Adobe® Photoshop® 6 gives you the opportunity to try the new skills you've learned about at the end of each chapter. You'll create your own image files, or use files provided especially for this book.

How This Book Is Organized

This book offers 21 chapters and three appendixes organized into seven parts. Because the Photoshop program offers so many features and there are so many graphic design considerations to learn about, each part focuses on a particular set of skills, as follows:

  • Part I, Starting Out with Photoshop, acquaints you with the Photoshop workspace and how to work with files in Photoshop.
  • Part II, Making Basic Edits, launches you into the creative process, teaching you how to use Photoshop's tools, how to change the image view, how to select and manipulate image content, and how to work with tools for positioning image content.
  • Part III, Using Layers, Masks, and Paths, introduces you to some of the hottest capabilities in Photoshop: dividing content onto layers for easier editing, using masks to create special effects, and using paths to make and store selections.
  • Part IV, Fine-Tuning Your Image, helps you advance your skills by trying specialized editing tools like the Sponge tool or Burn tool, how to manipulate the image size and resolution, how to use a filter to apply a special effect, and how to print your masterpiece.
  • Part V, Using More Advanced Techniques, enables you to work with color channels, adjust an image's color when needed, achieve special color effects, extend Photoshop's capabilities by using plug-ins, and save your own special processing techniques as actions.
  • Part VI, Prepping Images for the Web, shows you how to convert images for Web use, how to control transparency and other image features for better Web page integration, and how to use slices to create a clickable hotspot on a Web image.
  • Part VII, Appendixes, offers appendixes OR covering special topics: digital watermarking, working with Photoshop's preferences, and finding online resources to learn more about Photoshop.

Each chapter stands alone and presents a variety of techniques. Along the way, Notes, Tips, and Warnings highlight information that will help you use Photoshop more effectively and avoid making common beginner mistakes. At the end of each chapter, you'll find a hands-on exercise reviewing the chapter techniques. The book concludes with a Glossary of essential terms for graphic design and Photoshop.
