Since the early 1990's, when the digital imaging revolution was just getting started, PhotoShop established itself as the most comprehensive tool for creating and manipulating digital images. However, it was not exactly the easier software to master.
PhotoShop CS in easy steps recognizes this fact and is specifically designed to take you step by step in a logical, structured sequence to a detailed understanding of the software. It uses concise explanations and copious screen shots to simply and effectively create a clear, logical path to understanding and mastering the software.
Early chapters start with basic color theory with the introduction of the working environment and a range of essential features that get you started working with digital images. Later chapters cover advanced topics such as working with layers, paths and the pen tool, channels and masks as well as color correction methods and techniques such as slicing, image optimization, animation, rollovers and image maps.
