Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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

    Lacking substance...

    This book gives you 40-50 different effects but doesn't spend any time on the substance of typography. After reading this book, I can go back and replicate these tricks, but I'm not into forgery, so it doesn't do me much good. People think that computers can make them more artistic or creative. They forget that there are thousands of years of history and theory behind it, not a computer program. Photoshop is a tool, not a means to an end. This book proves that.

    Just my type! :)

    Roger Pring's book is not only exemplary in its content but also in how the author has designed the presentation of that content. I might have never thought of Photoshop as a source generator for super typography effects had it not been for happening upon Pring's excellent book. Now I think of Photoshop before I try manipulating type in any other application. I'm hooked. But beware! Before picking up Roger Pring's book I was just a normal PowerBook page designer and desktop publisher. Now I'm one of Pring's minions. This book about type is just my type.

    What a surprise! Sophisticated instructions and fun techniques!

    When I saw this book, my first impression was `Cool, it looks like a great new Photoshop 7 cookbook.¿ If that had been the case, I would have been happy enough, but it turned out to be the type of book the expression `Don¿t judge a book by its cover¿ came from. When you first hold this book in your hands you instantly know it is something special. The cover is made of a beautiful thick material and has large flaps that can easily be used to hold your place when you have to grudgingly walk away from the computer. The next pleasant surprise is the table of contents. I had no idea this book not only included some of the classiest style ideas I¿ve seen in a long time but also some lessons in typography, a very important part of the art world that has been struggling to break into the minds of many web designers. There is no way this book will sit on your bookshelf. Instead, it will be one of the first you open when deciding how to start a job or complete a logo or fix a clients problem. Happy Styling! Leslie
