If you make a living with Photoshop, Scott Kelby’s Photoshop 7 Down & Dirty Tricks is simply the hottest collection of Photoshop tricks, special effects, and tips you’ve ever seen.
This is stuff you’ve wished you could do. Just follow the steps and you’re doing it. Half-tone “pop dots” effects. Movie poster-style collages. Soft-edged portrait backgrounds. Raised-edge inner shadow effects. Transparent “TV type” (you know -- that corner logo that tells you what network you’re watching). Fake 3D. Credit card type. Blending logos into photos. Backscreening. Tattoos. Brushed metal “just like grandma used to make.”
Every page has a bonus tip: not a mere throwaway, but a really useful idea (previewing feathering even though there’s no preview feature; undoing color corrections months later; viewing RGB and CMYK at the same time.)
These ideas come from nearly a decade’s worth of Kelby’s live seminars, his column in Photoshop User magazine, and, above all, his personal interactions with thousands of Photoshop users worldwide. If you’ve seen the Photoshop 6 version of this book, there’s plenty that’s new here, and of the techniques that remain, many have been revamped to be even quicker and slicker. (Bill Camarda)
