Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
This is pure, perfect digital fakery: your start-to-finish guide to realistic photomontage and illustration with Photoshop. It’s built around real projects, many of them from Steve Caplin’s own impressive portfolio. And it covers everything from QuickMasks to hyperrealism.

Turn here to learn how to make it look like the people you’ve inserted are actually interacting. How to get realistic shadows and highlights. Do perfect haircuts. Make wide-awake people look like they’re sleeping. Add depth to flat artwork. Add editable text to 3-D surfaces. Create blood, gore, floods, rips, tears, folds, wrinkles, crumples, grime...if you need to fake it, start right here. Bill Camarda

Meet the Author

Steve Caplin is a freelance artist and author working in London, England. His satirical photomontage work is commissioned by newspapers and magazines around the world, including The Guardian, The Independent, The Sunday Telegraph, The Sunday Times Magazine, Radio Times, Readers Digest and L'Internazionale.

Steve has worked for advertising agencies including Saatchi & Saatchi, Bartle Bogle Hegarty and Lowe Howard Spink, and his work has won two Campaign Poster Awards and a D&AD Pencil award. He has lectured widely in England, Norway, France and Holland, and has taught digital design at the University of Westminster and the University of the Arts London.

Steve is the author of ten books: How to Cheat in Photoshop (five editions), How to Cheat in Photoshop Elements (co-authored, three editions), Icon Design, Max Pixel's Adventures in Adobe Photoshop Elements, The Complete Guide to Digital Illustration (co-authored) and Art & Design in Photoshop. He has also co-authored three mainstream books: Dad Stuff, More Dad Stuff, Stuff the Turkey and Complete and Utter Zebu.

When he's not at his computer Steve plays the piano well, the accordion moderately and the guitar badly. He spends his spare time making improbable constructions out of wood and other materials. His first commissioned sculpture was for the Bethlem hospital - the original 'bedlam' - in 2010.

    With this book 'Cheating' is a good thing.

    Steve Caplin's book How to Cheat in Photoshop is very well written and easy to understand. Each chapter is dedicated to a method or a group of methods that perform similar functions. These methods range from basic, in the early chapters, to complex though easily understandable, in the later chapters. I highly recommend this book to any Photoshop user.
