Synopsis:

Photoshop CS2  for Digital Photographers Only helps serious photographers pay their bills by showing them how to do better work in less time. The book is written by San Franciso-based commercial photographer Ken Milburn who “ walks the Photoshop talk.” There’ s no rehashing basic Photoshop or photography as has been done in hundreds of other books. Instead, Ken dives into topics that every serious photographer and Photoshop user will want to know: Hot-Rod Photoshop Features; Secrets of RAW Files; Organization and Workflow; Creating Your Own Keyboard Shortcuts; Action Building Secrets; Faster, Better Knockouts and Composites; Lighting After the Shoot; Shortcuts to Expert Output; and lots more. In addition to showing readers how to supercharge Photoshop’ s built-in tools, this book thoroughly covers add-ons from third-party vendors that will be appeal directly to serious photographers and Photoshop users. Ken speaks to his readers in plain English and illustrates his trade secrets with striking, full-color images throughout.
