Overview

Scott Kelby, the world's #1 bestselling Photoshop author, and the man who changed the Photoshop and digital photography world with his ground-breaking, award-winning "Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers" unveils a exciting, brand new way of thinking, and working in Adobe Photoshop that will not only change the industry again, but it will change the way we all work in Photoshop forever, so we can finally spend less time fixing our images, and more time finishing them.

You're about to become a Photoshop Shark!
Scott has focused in and really narrowed things down to just exactly which Photoshop tools and techniques we absolutely, positively have to know, and he found that there are just seven major tools, seven major features that we have to master to enhance our images like a pro. But then he took it a step further. Out of those seven major tools, he looked at which parts or sections of those tools do we really need to master, and which parts can we pretty much ignore (in other words, he whittled it down so you're not learning parts of the tools that you're probably never going to need). Then, and perhaps most importantly, he determined exactly when and in which order to apply these seven techniques that make up Scott's amazing "Photoshop Seven Point System."

But the magic of this book, is not just listing the seven tools and showing how they work. It's how they're used together, and how Scott teaches them (and makes it stick), that makes this book so unique. You're not going to just learn one technique for fixing shadows, and another technique for adjusting color (every Photoshop book pretty much does that, right?). Instead, you're going start off at square one, from scratch, as each chapter is just one photo—one project—one challenging lifeless image (you'll follow along using his the same images), and you're going to unleash these seven tools, in a very specific way, and you're going to do it again, and again, and again, in order on different photos, in different situations, until they are absolutely second nature. You're finally going to do the FULL fix—from beginning to end—with nothing left out, and once you learn these seven very specific techniques, and apply them in order, there won't be a an image that appears on your screen that you won't be able to enhance, fix, edit, and finish yourself!

Plus, Scott's techniques work across a wide range of photos, and that's exactly what you'll be working on in the book, from landscapes to portraits, to architectural, to nature, from event photography to everything in between—there isn't a photo you won't be able to beat!

This is the book you've been waiting for, the industry's been waiting for, and Scott's "Adobe Photoshop Seven Point System" is so revolutionary that he's officially applied for a patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and this new system is only found in this amazing, ground breaking new book. Once you learn these techniques, and start applying them yourself, you'll be the next one to say—"You can't beat 'The System!'

    Great book for those who know a little about CS3

    This book assumes you've used CS3 a little and are familiar with some basic tools/shortcuts. It's not hard to follow, but may be confusing for a total newbie. The lessons start out very easy, and progress to harder ones where Mr Kelby gives less info about how to do each step (since you've done all of these things over and over in the previous lessons) so it sort of gently puts you out there on your own. While I don't agree with some of the "morality" of how much he changes some of the photos in the book, I certainly think the techniques used are extremely useful in day-to-day use of CS3. I think it's worth the price for the instruction on "painting with light" and "double processing" with ACR alone. Hightly recommended for those who want a group of quick lessons, and not a long super-detailed manual of every tool and filter in CS3.

    Scott Kelby's Lucky 7

    Scott Kelby¿s 7-Point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3: The seven key techniques for taking your images from flat to fantastic. Ok, the alliteration aside, Scott Kelby has thrown down the gauntlet by challenging his readers to go through his new book, ¿ The 7-Point system, from cover to cover, and leave the experience able to transform any reasonable image into something they¿d be proud to show their mother, friends and fellow photographers. And, yes, Scott says, right up front, that for this book to work¿that to be able to develop the skills and confidence to rescue photos previously doomed to the digital trash bin¿readers are going to have to go through all of the book¿s 21 lessons, download the corresponding photos from the book¿s Web site and actually do each recommended step in the lesson exercises. Now remember, we¿re nominally talking about learning just seven Photoshop skills over the book¿s 263 pages so the real question becomes not can Scott fulfill his promise to make the reader a much better 'and faster' Photoshop user, but can he do it without boring the reader out of his or her skull? Having read the book, done the exercises and been very pleased at the results, I feel the answer is definitely ¿yes.¿ Fortunately, Scott¿s sense of humor, his tendency to add significant ¿extras¿ to the seven steps and his excellent book illustrations actually may make his readers wish there was a chapter 22 'or 23'. I don¿t think it¿s giving away too much of the book¿s value to list the seven areas where Scott helps reader build up their knowledge and skills: Processing in Camera Raw* Using Curves Applying the Shadow/Highlight Tool Painting With Light and Darkness Using Channels to Make Adjustments Using Blend Modes and Layer Masks and Applying Sharpening. Along the way Scott will help the reader build Photoshop actions for repetitive tasks, turn the LAB mode from mysterious to user-friendly and bring the often overlooked 'read that as studiously ignored' Apply command into the limelight. Although Scott does his usual excellent job of explaining each concept and step along the way, I was glad I already had familiarity with Photoshop tools, layers, masks and channels. It made it much easier for me to jump right into working with the image of Lesson 1. I do recommend Scott Kelby¿s 7-Point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3 but with this proviso: This is not a skim-it-and-put-it-on-the-shelf book it¿s a hands-on set of detailed lessons that will generously reward anyone who makes the effort to do the work. * For those readers who already own Adobe Lightroom, the Raw processing steps listed in the book can be done in that program rather than Adobe Camera Raw.

    A Must Book For Every Photoshop User!

    I've invested a small fortune over the years in Photoshop books, some good...some not so good. Photoshop guru and prolific author Scott Kelby's latest-the 7-Point System-is in a category by itself...absolutely essential. The concept he uses is to guide you in each lesson from original photo to finished using the same adjustments, tools, and techniques...seven points that are easy to learn for a beginner, and already well-known for more experienced Photoshop users. The beauty of the book lies in seeing not just a curves adjustment or a layer mask in use, but actually working on the same photos 'downloaded'Scott used and step-by-step bringing it from bland to beautiful. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about Photoshop techniques, but this book has done more to improve my workflow and overall approach to what to look for in a photo that I'm editing than anything before it. And using only 7-points to boot! Lesson 1 alone is an eye-opener as you take a barely viewable photo and using those 7 points, end up with a photo anyone would be proud of. There is a huge Wow factor at work in each lesson. Written in Scott's familiar breezy style, this should be on every Photoshop user's holiday wish list...if you can wait that long. As if all that wasn't enough, This Barnes&Noble special edition includes access to video tutorials by Scott showing how to work this 7-point system. Two thumbs up and a pat on the back to Mr. Kelby for delivering the goods with this one.
