Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Attention digital photographers: as part of the new publishing partnership between New Riders and Scott Kelby and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, we?re eager to present a book long overdue: An elegant-yet-concise guide to retouching photographs using Photoshop. This is the best 250-pages? worth of full-color instruction created on the subject, by the hottest new author/leader in the community. Scott?s other book, Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks became an instant bestseller when it first came out (for version 5.5); his training videos have won him legions of fans. If you?re new to digital photography and are looking for your first golden tutorial, read this book now. If you already own a book on digital photo retouching, you may want to take a look into the stuff that Scott Kelby teaches. It?s his specialty, and it?s your career.

Book News Annotation:

Kelby (editor of Photoshop User magazine) explains how to use features of the photo manipulation software to cause various effects. Topics include cloning tips and techniques, retouching, digital plastic surgery, repairing damaged images, adjusting color, cropping and straightening images, getting better grayscale images, cleaning up line art, photo-collaging, and studio and advertising techniques. Step-by-step illustration instructions accompany the text throughout.
