Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Photoshop channels and masks are worth a book of their own: There's that much to learn. But are they worth the time you'll spend reading it? Yes. And does this book deserve that investment? Absolutely.

If you're not using channels and masks, you've placed much of Photoshop's power off-limits. Stephen Romaniello helps you remedy that, fast. He starts with a brief refresher on layers, then makes sure you have a strong foundation in color. Once that's dealt with, he thoroughly demystifies color channels, helping you create great monochromes and duotones, apply spot color, tweak fleshtones, and more.

Then, it's on to masking. Romaniello simplifies fundamentals like selections, Quick Masks, and working with alpha channels. Then he puts them to work in tasks ranging from compositing to that classic hassle: masking hair. It's all simple, straightforward, and usable: words you've never associated with these features before. Bill Camarda, from the May 2007 Read Only
