Photoshop LAB Color: The Canyon Conundrum and Other Adventures in the Most Powerful Colorspace based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
When I started to read this book I found it heavy going, due in the main to the constant references to illustrations and curves being either on previous pages or next page. After a while I found this very frustrating. However, all the frustration has been well worth it as the content is simply awesome! My previous excursions into LAB were to use the Lightness Channel to sharpen images. Not any more!! I am now half way through the book again on my seventh read, and suspect it will not be my last, because as I said earlier, it is not an easy read, but it not only brings a new meaning to LAB it puts a new perspective on Photoshop. (Of all the books I have on Photoshop not one goes into any detail about LAB) As Dan points out several times in the book it is not the answer to all color problems, but where it is , it really is!! The impressive thing for me is once you have understood and mastered his techniques it only takes seconds to transform drab, flat uninspiring images into vibrant works of art. Fantastic! If you have images which are flat, need color correction, need a color shift, noise removal better sharpening, blending.............I could go on and on, then this is the book for you. It is packed from cover to cover with examples of various techniques plus of course a CD of images for you to work along with. You may find it heavy going to begin with but stick with it. The rewards are more than you could ever imagine. A Gem of a book.
