Photoshop for Astrophotographers is a guide to basic digital correction and advanced enhancement techniques for astrophotos in Adobe Photoshop image-processing software.

Digital processing allows us to bring out all of the detail and color contained in an original exposure and turn it into a beautiful and breathtaking image.Whether you are a beginning amateur astrophotographer, or a seasoned veteran, you will learn new and exciting techniques to produce visually stunning images!

Cheap, fast home personal computers and programs such as Photoshop have opened a new world of digital enhancement possibilities for both film and CCD astrophotographers. Now, with image processing software, you can turn your computer into a digital darkroom where you can easily improve the brightness and contrast, color balance, and sharpness of images, as well as crop, resize, dodge and burn, remove dust and scratches, adjust the color saturation, and apply filtration.

The book gives detailed, step-by-step directions describing methods for properly adjusting, correcting and enhancing images with Photoshop. These techniques will produce the best results, both technically and aesthetically, for output to the web, monitor, printing press, desktop printer, or film recorder.

Photoshop for Astrophotographers is not a traditional paper book. It is a digital book on CD that you will be able to view on your computer in any internet web browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape, or Opera. It will offer unique features such as "mouse-overs" that allow before and after comparisons of images by simply holding the mouse cursor over the image. A powerful built-in search engine provides automatic links to the pages containing the search terms. Practice files are included for use in the step-by-step tutorials, as well as comprehensive references and links to more information.
