I thought I knew Photoshop 6's capablities pretty well until I found this book! It is filled with full color images that apply most of Photoshop's filters to a single photo, which creates an interesting way to compare the effects. The original photograph is so altered by the look and feel of each filter, you will find yourself eager to try each one. Best of all, the authors explain how they achieved the effects. If you need ideas or want to save time by previewing a filter's effects, you must have this book - a fantastic resource for an expert or a beginner!
