Photoshop 7 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide (Visual QuickStart Guides)by Elaine Weinmann
Synopses & Reviews
Adobe Photoshop is one of those programs that both dazzles and dismays: You can do extraordinary things with it — as long as you don't get lost in its maze of palettes and toolbars. Luckily for you, with Photoshop 7 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide, that needn't be a probem! If you're ready to take on image editing in Photoshop 7, this straight-ahead visual reference is the place to start.
Veteran authors Elaine Weinmann and Peter Lourekas are back with a completely revised edition of the guide that's become the standard for Photoshop instruction in classrooms, homes, and offices. Through clear, concise instructions and a multitude of screen shots, this book steps you through the basics of photo editing, manipulation, optimization, and correction. It also provides complete coverage of all that's new in version 7: native Mac OS X support, a new painting engine that facilitates wet and dry brush effects, and more — all in a task-based format that constantly reminds you of where you are in the program and what you're trying to accomplish.
Book News Annotation:
Weinmann and Lourekas have written other popular Visual QuickStart Guides on QuarkXPress, Illustrator, LiveMotion and Painter. Here they deliver just what they promise: detailed illustrations, concise explanations, and step-by-step instructions that should enable beginning and intermediate users to find their way around Photoshop fairly quickly. They include a special chapter for preparing images for the Internet, as well as instructions for scanning images for print and for the Web; tips for opening and adjusting images from photo CDs; basic techniques for (correctly) changing an image's dimensions or resolution; and coverage of more advanced topics such as using layers, filters, libraries, and palettes.
