Overview

For many desktop publishers, photographers, illustrators, designers, prepress houses, and service bureaus, Adobe Photoshop is the tool of choice when preparing images for print or the Web. Version 5.0 promises more power, a multiple undo feature, enhanced color management, new workflow tools, increased precision and control abilities, and more. Real World Photoshop 5 is the only book that explicitly covers the production issues Photoshop users deal with every day. Richly illustrated and in full-color throughout, the book is entirely updated to cover the new features of Photoshop 5.0, on both Windows and Macintosh platforms. It explains in simple language the essential concepts and techniques for producing high-quality, professional images quickly and efficiently, covering in depth the key Photoshop tools-not only how to use them, but also why and when. Previous editions of this book have sold over 30,000 copies. The only book that explicitly addresses the production, color, and prepress issues Macintosh and Windows Photoshop users deal with daily. Authors Blatner and Fraser have collectively written many books and articles on color publishing and desktop publishing.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Photoshop used to be a relatively simple program to use. Now, it is not unusual to find more of your window devoted to palettes than to the artwork. Photoshop has become so complex that power users need books such as this one with information on everything from managing the system, either Mac or Wintel, to tonal corrections and using a digital darkroom, to output methods for print, CD, or the web. Not for beginners, this is an excellent title for advanced users. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
