This is not your father’s Photoshop Bible. Sure, it’s by Deke McClelland -- so you know you’ll gain deep insight and have fun doing it. But this book’s in full color -- and it’s focused almost entirely on advanced topics. If you’re a Photoshop user who’s been around the block awhile, this one’s for you.
To give you the sense of depth, there are 50 pages on blend modes and knockouts alone. There’s great coverage of destructive filters. Serious automation techniques with actions and batch processing. And stuff you’re finally ready for -- like convolution kernels and displacement maps. Above all, though, the focus is on creative technique -- never just features for their own sake. Spend some time with this book, and you’ll be a more sophisticated, productive, happier Photoshop user. Bill Camarda
