Martin Evening's award-winning Adobe Photoshop for Photographers titles have become must-have reference sources - the only Photoshop books written to deal directly with the needs of photographers. This book contains a wealth of invaluable practical advice, with even more hints and tips to help you achieve professional-looking results.
Adobe Photoshop 7.0 for Photographers begins with an introduction to working with digital images, providing essential, up-to-date information on everything from scanning devices to color management and output issues.
Practical workshops show you how to master the essential techniques, with full coverage of all that's new in Photoshop 7.0, including: improved retouching techniques with the Healing Brush and Patch tool; removing color casts with the new Auto Color image adjustment feature; navigating, sorting and managing your photographs with the enhanced File Browser option; and how to save as many custom palette configurations as you like via the Workspace settings. Each technique is described in step-by-step detail, showing exactly which command to use, whether you're working on a Mac or PC. Detailed coverage is also given for Mac OSX users which Photoshop supports for the first time in version 7.0, as well as information on Windows XP for PC users.
The accompanying free CD-ROM contains invaluable movie tutorials and a selection of images to experiment with, surely the quickest way to learn.

"... a great choice for any photographer who has finally been dragged, perhaps a little reluctantly (or perhaps kicking and screaming), into the brave new world of digital imaging."
"Even bigger than previous versions with new pictures and some completely rewritten areas making this as essential as earlier versions. Some fantastic info from a professional photographer who's been using the program since its early days. Has a large section on colour management and some top techniques to make the most of your images. Not for the beginner, but destined to be a best seller in this genre." Ephotozine
