The Barnes & Noble Review
In this book, Scott Kelby shares all the neat Photoshop retouching tricks that wouldn't fit in his bestselling video course or his legendary seminars. The result: a 240-page, full-color, no-theory guide packed with techniques you will use. As Kelby puts it, this is " 'the funk and not the junk'...a 'down and dirty, get the job done fast, use all the shortcuts and tricks, and, most importantly, have a great time while you're doing it' book."

So, what do you want to do today? Remove a harsh shadow? Repair an underexposed or overexposed image? Remove signs of aging (from a photo, not you)? Shrink someone's nose? Eliminate a moire pattern? Straighten a crooked scan? It's all here, step by step, and as clearly explained as we've ever seen it.

There's a full chapter on color correction -- more than enough for most tasks you'll encounter (say, for example, removing the odd color casts scanners introduce, or adjusting flesh tones for CMYK). You'll also learn how to add depth, detail, and contrast back to your grayscale images, even if your dad's Brownie camera missed them back in '58. Retouching has never been so thoroughly demystified, or this much fun. (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant and writer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies®, Second Edition.

Kelby (editor of magazine) explains how to use features of the photo manipulation software to cause various effects. Topics include cloning tips and techniques, retouching, digital plastic surgery, repairing damaged images, adjusting color, cropping and straightening images, getting better grayscale images, cleaning up line art, photo-collaging, and studio and advertising techniques. Step-by-step illustration instructions accompany the text throughout. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
