If you want to get the most out of Photoshop 6, check out Photoshop 6 in Depth. In this book, two well-known Photoshop, prepress, and image management trainers take you under the program's hood -- offering the theory, insight, and practical techniques you need to become far more effective.
You'll find extensive coverage of Photoshop 6's new features -- notably, the new layer capabilities, which make layers more powerful, more convenient, and easier to control. David Xenakis' firm specializes in high-end color print preparation and digital prepress; you'll find much of his wisdom on these topics here.
You'll also find strong coverage of working with Photoshop channels. Some people think layers made channels obsolete: however, there are still many things you can still do more easily with channels (e.g., generating masks for many emboss and relief effects, or creating really precise drop shadows).
The book contains detailed coverage of integrating Photoshop with other applications, as well as excellent coverage of getting the most out of your scanner. There's new information on prepping images for the Web, plus a CD-ROM containing filters, plug-ins, fonts, stock photos, and other goodies. (Bill Camarda)
