UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF THE HOTTEST TRICKS, AND MOST REQUESTED PHOTOSHOP EFFECTS IN ONE AMAZING BOOK!

Scott Kelby, co-host of Photoshop User TV and the world’s #1 bestselling Photoshop author, is back to unlock the secrets of an amazing new collection of the latest eye-popping, jaw-dropping, Photoshop special effects—the same kind that made Scott’s previous editions of this book one of the top selling Photoshop books in history.

You’ll learn some of the most closely guarded Photoshop CS4 special effects—the same ones you see on TV, in magazines, and on the Web. Using Scott’s simple step-by-step method, with hundreds of full-color images, you’ll see exactly how it’s all done. The book is written so clearly, and it is so easy to follow, you’ll immediately be able to create all of these effects yourself. You’ll learn:

    • The latest photographic special effects

    • How to fake studio shots (you’ll be amazed at how it’s done)

    • The latest cutting-edge type effects

    • The most popular effects used by big movie studios

    • The most-requested advertising effects

    • Commercial effects that clients go crazy over!

    • The most asked-for current Web effects

    • Amazing 3D effects using Photoshop Extended

    • Plus loads of effects that look hard, but are easy once you know the secrets

But this book is more than just about learning the most-requested Photoshop special effects. It’s really a book a learning the “other side” of Photoshop (the techniques beyond the everyday color correction, sharpening, Camera Raw, etc.). This is the fifth edition of this book, and Scott has received literally thousands of emails and letters from readers of these previous editions who’ve told him that this is the book that they feel really unlocked Photoshop’s power to them and took their understanding and use of Photoshop to an entirely different level. He's heard the same thing from educators around the world who use previous editions of this book as their classroom textbook on Photoshop, because of the wide range of techniques that are covered, and in this new edition, Scott gives more of the "Why" behind the step-by-step creation of these amazing effect than any previous version, making it even more valuable as a learning tool.

Not only that, but the whole book is packed with creative ideas, layouts, and design techniques that will help you unleash your own creativity. It’s all here, in the only Photoshop book of its kind.

Synopsis:

Kelby, the world's #1 bestselling Photoshop author, unveils an exciting, brand new way of thinking and working in Adobe Photoshop. He identifies seven major tools that must be mastered to enhance images like a pro.

Synopsis:

Bestselling author Scott Kelby, Editor of Photoshop User magazine, is back to unlock even more secrets of the most closely guarded special effects. Using his clear, plain-English step-by-step method with tons of beautiful images, readers will see exactly how it's all done. Plus, it's more than just an effects book; it's a tips book, too, with cool new tips and shortcuts scattered throughout the book! Covering the newest and best features of Photoshop CS4, Photoshop CS4 Down & Dirty Tricks is completely updated! This book's not another rehash of masking, pixels, and file formats, or resolution--it's nothing but the cool stuff that will make the readers', the clients', and the boss's jaws drop!
