9780240516905: Adobe Photoshop 7.0 for Photographers, First Edition

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.

If you have an initial grasp of the Photoshop basics and are looking for ways to improve the quality of your work, want to find new ideas and tutorials for the best techniques direct from a pro whilst making sure you are fully up-to-date on Photoshop 7.0, then this is the book for you!

Review:

There are few computer tools that have the longevity and staying power of Adobe's Photoshop, and version 7 offers improvements, fixes, and new features that any digital photographer can appreciate. Adobe Photoshop 7 for Photographers places these new features in perspective and teaches their use, plus a whole lot more.

Approaching Photoshop from the viewpoint of a photographer, the author places much emphasis on tools for digital image acquisition, color correction, color management, and retouching. Color management--the science, art, and voodoo of synchronizing Photoshop, the computer monitor, and the printer for consistent color reproduction--is discussed in detail. Any Photoshop veteran would agree that this is one of the most important and difficult parts of any system to configure, but Evening handles it gracefully and patiently.

This book is not written for the experienced Photoshop user, however; it's clearly aimed at the experienced photographer who may or may not have Photoshop experience. Toward that end, there are chapters that detail the nuances of file management, scanning or uploading pictures into the computer, the interface, and configuring Photoshop for optimal use.

Even those with Photoshop experience should flip through every page, though. The book includes something informative on virtually every topic and tool, and to turn a page without glancing through each paragraph would mean letting important information pass by without a glance. No shortcuts were taken either with the enclosed CD-ROM, which includes 14 QuickTime movies demonstrating techniques taught in the book. Also on the CD-ROM are PDF files of some of the techniques, along with the source images used for many of the projects.

Any professional photographer or digital image artist can find countless tips, tricks, and techniques throughout, making Adobe Photoshop 7 for Photographers an important asset and a valuable addition to a library. --Mike Caputo
