Once you had photos in shoe boxes scattered everywhere. Now you’re digital. You’ve got photos scattered all over your hard drive -- and on CDs scattered everywhere. Still can’t find and share the ones you’re looking for, right? There’s a solution: Photoshop Album, and How to Do Everything with Photoshop Album.
Step by step, Curt Simmons walks through everything Photoshop Album can do -- and that’s a lot. You’ll start by importing your photos and organizing them for easy retrieval (quicker than you suspect). Photoshop Album isn’t primarily an image editor, but Simmons helps you use the editing features it does have -- for example, cropping tools and fixes for poor exposures, or “red-eye.”
Next, you’ll learn how to share photos via email, web galleries, or even those ubiquitous Acrobat PDFs. Of course, there’s a full chapter on getting quality prints: from your printer or from an Internet photo service like Shutterfly.
You’ll use Album’s creative tools to build photo calendars, slide shows, greeting cards, even a photo book that can be printed and sent to you (as pioneered by Apple’s iPhoto). Next, there’s a full section on archiving and backing up your photos. There’s nothing worse than losing megabytes of carefully preserved digital photos: Please take this section to heart.
The book ends with two chapters of tips and troubleshooting. (Which web gallery features are unreliable. How not to format email photo attachments in Outlook. How to import photos larger than Album’s 12 MB limit.)
Imagine actually getting on top of your photo library. Then, stop imagining, and get this book. Bill Camarda
