Publisher Comments:

This update is so important, because if there was ever a version of Photoshop that was aimed at digital photographers, Photoshop CS is it, and "The Photoshop CS Book for Digital Photographers" by Scott Kelby (Editor of Photoshop User magazine) once again breaks new ground by doing something for digital photographers that's never been done before--it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly "how to do it." It's not a bunch of theory; it doesn't challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure it out on your own. Instead, it shows you step by step the exact techniques used by today's cutting-edge digital photographers and retouchers, and it does something that virtually no other Photoshop book has ever done — it tells you, flat-out, which settings to use, when to use them, and why.

If you're looking for one of those "tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Mask-filter" books, this isn't it. You can grab any other Photoshop book on the shelf, because they all do that. Instead, this book gives you the inside tips and tricks of the trade that today's leading pros use to correct, edit, sharpen, retouch, and present their photos to some of the most demanding clients on the planet. You'll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective they are--once you know the secrets.

LEARN HOW THE PROS DO IT Each year Scott trains thousands of professional photographers how to use Photoshop, and almost without exception they have the same questions and the same problems — that's exactly what Scott covers in this book. You'll learn:

  • The secrets of how the pros retouch portraits
  • How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat (you'll be amazed at how they do it!)
  • How to unlock the power of Photoshop CS' new features for digital photo pros
  • Amazing digital body-sculpting techniques
  • How the pros use CS' File Browser (it's much more powerful than you think)
  • Tricks that can send your productivity through the roof
  • The sharpening techniques the pros really use (there's an entire chapter just on this!)
  • How to deal with common digital camera image problems
  • Removing noise, avoiding halos, and protecting your images
  • How to use Match Color, The Color Replacement Tool, and other amazing CS tools.
  • Masking techniques for photographers
  • The most-requested photographic special effects
  • and much more!
Photoshop CS is THE tool for digital photographers, and this book show you exactly how to put it's power to work for you today.

Synopsis:

A time-saving handbook for the professional photographer who is making the transition from traditional to digital photography.

Synopsis:

Scott Kelby is one of those rare authors who not only knows his topic--Photoshop CS--backward and forward but also knows how to distill it into the need-to-know essentials that the rest of the world is interested in. In these pages, Scott cuts through the bull to show you how to make the transition from traditional to digital photography using the best image manipulation software available today: Photoshop CS. You'll find full-color, graphically rich project-based examples of every key step in the digital photography process-from experimenting with camera settings to capturing and manipulating images, and editing, outputting, and organizing them. What you won't find is a bunch of theory or a challenge to come up with your own settings. Instead, Scott tells you flat out which setting to use, when to use them, and why. Along the way you'll learn about color correction and digital body-sculpting, how and why the pros edit in 16-bit, and more.
