Overview

The best, most requested effects that you've seen on the Web and elsewhere, explained by Photoshop experts Al Ward and Colin Smith. In response to feedback from their popular web sites and magazine articles, Al and Colin have teamed up with friends of ED to answer your questions. They've packed in lots of useful information—not just how to create a certain effect, but other tips as well, including how to improve your workflow, variations on effects, and creative suggestions to help you express yourself further.

This book is for the enthusiastic amateur and experienced pro alike. It's full of techniques and advice that will help Photoshop users from intermediate to advanced skill levels. This book will help to stock up your armoury; when you finish,you'll have a range of weapons for all occasions and be able to deploy them faster and more effectively.

The book is divided into three main sections. Inthe first two, Al and Colin work individually to create the most wanted effects. In the third section, Al and Colin combine their skills in three different design projects. These projects were selected to demonstrate how designers tackle a variety of tasks when working with others, the questions and issues that may arise, and how the final product is achieved.

The focus is on tutorials and how to create effects, rather than lengthy descriptions of individual tools. The majority of requests that Al and Colin receive are about producing stunning images, not explaining the tools, so that's what they've concentrated on. We've kept one thing in mind during the making of this book: What do our readers really want?

Al and Colin found thatthey didn't have the space or time on their sitesto pass on all their knowledge to visitors—people kept asking them for more, more, more... so here it is: more information, more effects, more tips... and lots more!

Photoshop has helped to create an army of devoted followers, not by being relatively easy to pick up, but by having a huge range of creative options available to you once you have learned the basics. You can then let your imagination run wild...

With foreword by Scott Kelby:

"One of the most powerful features of Photoshop may be the effect it has on the people who use it. People who use Photoshop are hungry for information, they're hungry to learn the latest tricks, the hot new techniques... and that common interest has an amazing way of bringing like-minded people together."
