Overview

Photoshop 6/ImageReady 3 is one of the few Photoshop books that focuses on the Web instead of print, and much to the delight of Web artists, it shows you how to use both Photoshop 6 and ImageReady 3.0 together. To learn this powerful Web-tools combo to its fullest potential, you need a teacher like Lynda Weinman, whose years of experience and pure enthusiasm for the medium are evident throughout her hands-on lessons. Weinman uses classroom-proven techniques from her training center to demonstrate how and when to use Photoshop 6 and ImageReady 3 to create appealing and quick-loading Web graphics.

The latest title in our H.O.T. series, Photoshop 6/ImageReady 3 Hands-On Training focuses on the newest tools and automation devices available in this combined package. The book guides you through a series of exercises of increasing complexity, giving you hands-on, step-by-step experience in optimizing and previewing GIF and JPEG graphics, slicing Web images, using layers to create rollovers and Layer Effects to automate buttons, using ImageReady to "tween" animations, and much more. The book includes a new chapter on layers that shows you how to use layers to create masks, clipping paths and effects, plus a CD-ROM with sample files for all of the exercises and QuickTime movies that illustrate some techniques. Even if you're an experienced artist, you'll be surprised at how much you'll learn about Photoshop from this pioneering Web author.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Narrower in focus than SAMS Teach Yourself Adobe Photoshop 6 in 24 Hours (Computer Media, LJ 4/1/01), this guide for intermediate users focuses on using these two programs together in designing web graphics. ImageReady ships with Photoshop 6 and seamlessly integrates with it; although most Photoshop titles give ImageReady short shrift, here it finds equal billing. The accompanying CD-ROM includes QuickTime movies demonstrating a number of techniques from the book and sample files for use in the tutorials. Recommended for larger public libraries.
