Sick of all those lame, clichéd, 20th-century Photoshop type effects? Want to create effects you’ve never seen before? Have we got a book for you.
Photoshop Type Effects Visual Encyclopedia brings together well over 100 spectacular new effects for nearly every imaginable mood and medium. Superb reflective effects like realistic shaped glass and “fish scale” decorative metal. Etched glass. Water vapor condensation. Soft, translucent plastic. Street number plates. Erosion. Quicksilver. Goth-style band name type. Skywriting. Routed wood. LCD displays. Weathering. Stone masonry. Sausage letters. Letterpress impressions. Ice. And, OK, a few effects you have seen but need in your repertoire anyway (like Apple-style Aqua type).
There’s also an expert overview of Photoshop 7’s extensive type-handling capabilities, which make type every bit as powerful a design resource as images always have been. For those times when Photoshop’s built-in filters aren’t enough, there’s even coverage of filters from KPT and Alien Skin.
With glorious full-color printing throughout, every single step of every step-by-step procedure contains its own visual. You never have to guess -- and it’s hard to imagine how you could go astray. Bill Camarda
