The Barnes & Noble Review
For generations, photographers have known that an efficient, intelligent workflow is crucial to making great images. But digital workflow is a whole new animal. This book will help you design a 100 percent practical Photoshop CS2-based workflow that works for you.

You'll walk through downloading and sorting images; using RAW files; and working with Photoshop CS2's basic tools: rotation, cropping, tone, color, clone stamp, and so forth. Next, you'll turn to more sophisticated tweaks: painting with light; customizing color ranges; using thresholds to refine selections; targeting adjustments with masks and layer groups.

Next, you'll delve into saving files (PSD vs. TIFF, among other issues); automating workflow with Actions (it's about time you made the most of these); and processing output while preserving your master image. There's even a comprehensive sample workflow checklist. You'll never miss a step -- or a trick. Bill Camarda, from the June 2005 Read Only
