Review:

Written for business professionals and graphic-design beginners, Design Essentials focuses on developing intermediate skills using Photoshop and Illustrator to achieve more-than-basic results in various image-editing and image-creation tasks. The third edition of this book, while updated for Photoshop 5 and Illustrator 8, retains the handsome four-color layout with screen shots placed alongside clear, simple step-by-step instructions for each task in the book.

Design Essentials will show you how to set up your system's memory specs, manage fonts, optimize your software, and avoid unnecessary memory constraints. Divided into six sections, the book concentrates on related areas of software use and visual design to help you make the most of your time spent using these Adobe products.

A typical section breakdown can be understood by looking at Section I, which shows you how to draw lines and work with perspective; you create line effects, shapes with outlines, shaded spheres, and perspective grids. Other sections in the book focus on painting style techniques, patterning and texturing, text manipulation, filters, and Web-related tasks. --Kathleen Caster
