Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Noodling around with Photoshop to create interesting composite artwork is all well and good. But if you rely on Photoshop to meet tough production challenges in a fast-paced professional environment, noodling won't cut it! You need results, and you need them now: This book delivers! In this copiously illustrated volume, best-selling authors David Blatner and Bruce Fraser offer scads of hands-on production techniques--as well as clear explanations of the concepts that drive them--so that you can get the best results possible on your own Photoshop CS projects. You'll learn about managing color, getting great scans, correcting tones and colors, and more. You also find complete coverage of all of Photoshop CS' newest features: an improved File Browser; nonsquare pixel support; cool, new Photomerge technology (which allows you to create seamless panoramas out of multiple images); and more. Throughout, the emphasis is on efficiency: the time-saving tips and professional shortcuts that will allow you to work faster, smarter, and more creatively with Photoshop CS.

Book News Annotation:

Rather than offering a re-worked Photoshop manual or guide to producing avant garde special effects with this industry standard, a Seattle-based graphic arts consultant and a Macworld editor address "the many questions that people in production environments ask every single day...." Such practical areas include choosing hardware, basic image techniques, color management, preparing images for the Web, and troubleshooting. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
