About the Adobe Photoshop CS5 Ultimate Workshop Book
496 pages + DVD featuring tutorial movies
This title is coauthored by Martin Evening and Jeff Schewe. While the main Photoshop for Photographers book covers all the essentials of image editing in Photoshop, this title is intended as a companion book. It goes into greater detail and supplements your knowledge of Photoshop, offering expert guidance that's aimed at intermediate to advanced users of Photoshop.
In this second edition, Martin Evening and Jeff Schewe each describe in detail how to carry out some of their favorite Photoshop image editing and retouching techniques. Another appealing feature of this book, is that many of the photographs are taken from real-life professional shoots. The techniques described here don't just show you clever things you can do in Photoshop, they show how you can use Photoshop in a professional context, meeting the demands of art directors and how to meet tricky briefs.
But don't be put off by the thought that this is a book for advanced professional Photoshop users only. A lot of the tips and techniques shown in this book are easy to learn and clearly explained throughout. Click the book preview link on the right to take a sneak preview.
This title is not due to be updated to Photoshop CC. This is because most of what is described in this book are 'classic' techniques and therefore the content is not so version-specific as the main Adobe Photoshop CC for Photographers book.
Note for Macintosh customers
It is known that some Macintosh users may experience difficulty getting the Help Guide to display correctly from the DVD. Help is at hand. You can access all of the Help Guide contents via an on-line version of the Ultimate Workshop Help Guide. This link also allows ebook readers to access all the images that are supplied on the DVD.
