Overview

The commonsense, by-the-numbers approach of Professional Photoshop has shaped the workflows of a generation of Photoshop experts. This new edition, the first in nearly five years, is completely updated for the age of digital photography. It continues the book’s tradition of introducing astoundingly effective, previously unknown methods of image enhancement. The original photographs found in the book come from a variety of professional sources, and all correction exercises are on the included CD. Professional Photoshop has changed radically from edition to edition, and this time is no exception—with almost 90 percent new content and completely overhauled coverage of curves, channel blending, and sharpening.Professional Photoshop offers a full explanation of:
  • How curves bring out detail in the most important areas of the imagen
  • A comprehensive strategy for blending channels to create deeper, stronger images
  • The strengths and weaknesses of CMYK, LAB, and RGB, and when to use each one
  • The first detailed look at the Shadow/Highlight command—and even more sophis-ticated ways to enhance contrast in the lightest and darkest parts of the imagen
  • Sharpening strategies, in three full chapters, including the innovative hiraloam method (High Radius, Low Amount). Plus, a fiendishly effective method of merging hiraloam and conventional unsharp masking
  • The realities—and the politics—of preparing files for commercial offset printing and how to deal with colors that are out of the press’s gamut
  • What Camera Raw and similar acquisition modules can offer
  • Typical problems of digital captures that were not found in the age of film— and how to correct for them

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Dan Margulis may know more about color correction than anyone. He's never been shy about sharing his techniques and opinions -- in private master classes, and in books like Professional Photoshop. That book, now in its Fifth Edition, remains indispensable for everyone who's obsessive about image quality.

If you've seen earlier editions, you know how good (and provocative) Margulis is. But you might wonder whether this edition's worth the upgrade. It is. To begin with, there's nearly 90 percent new content.

Margulis has overhauled his discussion of curves and totally revamped his sections on channel blending and sharpening. The Fourth Edition contained one chapter on sharpening; this one has four, including extensive new coverage of Shadow/Highlight. There's new guidance on coaxing better results from commercial printers, and an extensive new discussion of RAW, too. It's not all easy reading, but stick with it, and you'll be rewarded with outstanding images. Bill Camarda, from the February 2007 Read Only

Meet the Author

Dan Margulis was one of the first three individuals—and the only writer—to be named as a member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame. In announcing his election, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals said, “Dan’s ability to reduce complicated concepts to words that users can understand and his insistence on dealing with real-world relevance have made him today’s most influential voice in color reproduction.” Dan’s 2006 best-seller, Photoshop LAB Color, revolutionized workflows. Channels expert David Biedny called Photoshop LAB Color “probably the most important Photoshop book ever written.”

    An essential reference on color correction

    Dan Margulis, a master of color correction, loves pushing the limits of digital manipulation. Using precise step-by-step examples he guides you through some of the most cutting edge color correction techniques, exploring uncharted territories in ways that no one could have ever imagined possible. Professional Photoshop Fifth Edition is for anyone who works with Photoshop and who wish to achieve maximum reproduction qualities in his images: photographers, prepress, artists, designers ... and although this book clearly addresses the needs of ¿intermediate and advanced¿ Photoshop users, I suggest that even beginners acquire this book right from the start and for years to come it will be prove to be a precious reference. If you were allowed only one book on advanced color correction using Photoshop, it should be this one.
