If you’re like us, you’ve found yourself choosing books based on the sidebars -- those great tips and nuggets that don’t fit into the narrative but often make the entire purchase worthwhile. Here’s a Photoshop book that’s nothing but sidebars.
Scott Kelby and Felix Nelson, the editor-in-chief and creative director of Photoshop User magazine, respectively, have pulled together more than 300 of the best Photoshop 7 tips they’ve come across.
You’ll find tips for every aspect of running Photoshop, from color to retouching, type to layers, and beyond. How to steal colors from anywhere, not just open documents. How to do lightning-fast feathering, how to get “dumb quotes” back even though “smart quotes” are now the default; how to get super-clean type for the Web; a cool undocumented airbrush toggle trick, and on, and on, and on.
You’ll especially appreciate the tips for efficient production (how to instantly find the center of any object; how to transform and copy at the same time, how to display your most recent tonal adjustment settings instead of Photoshop’s defaults). If you live in Photoshop, you’ve just hit the jackpot. Bill Camarda
