Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Photoshop keeps getting more powerful, but it hasn't gotten a whole lot easier. For new users, the learning curve is still too darned steep. Teach Yourself VISUALLY Photoshop 6 bulldozes that learning curve. It's ideal for new designers -- and for anyone who wants to get results with Photoshop 6 and ImageReady without the pain.

Mike Wooldridge organizes Photoshop into roughly 130 bite-sized tasks. Each gets its own two-page, full-color spread -- with easy-to-understand graphics, and a set of screen captures that show you exactly what to do, and what happens when you do it.

This is all the stuff new Photoshop users want to do right away (and, oftentimes, struggle with). Cropping. Selecting with the marquee tools, lasso, magnetic lasso, magnetic wand, and color range command (and when to use each). Flipping, rotating, scaling, skewing, feathering, rubber stamping, and slicing. Converting color to grayscale. Creating duotones. Using the swatch palette. Adjusting hue and saturation. Working with layers, layer effects, filters, and type. Creating a contact sheet. Even automating your work by recording actions.

For Photoshop beginners, no book does a better job of getting Photoshop's complexity out of the way -- and liberating your talent. (Bill Camarda)
