Synopsis: Photoshop, Illustrator, and Painter are three popular graphics software packages that are commonly used by production artists, fine artists, and Web graphics artists. Each has capabilities that the other don't: Photoshop is known for its image editing features, Illustrator for its type handling and vector-based shape building abilities, and Painter for its traditional, "painterly" effects. Using a system of easy-to read charts, this book shows readers how to use these tools effectively inconjuntion with one another, side-by-side.
Review: No digital artist uses only one tool, nor do they use a set of tools from only one publisher. The beauty of Photoshop, Painter, and Illustrator: Side by Side is that it addresses the practical needs of today's digital artist. The book covers three tools, from two publishers, using tutorials and side-by-side comparisons--and it does a great job.
If you're most experienced with one of these programs but want to learn about any of the others, you need this book. Every page compares and illustrates common tools, techniques, and similar terminology through color-coded screen shots (each program is assigned a color) or through a table that lists a particular feature and how it is implemented in each program.
These tables are the driving engine of the book. Each chapter starts with a three-column matrix describing a feature common to all three programs. Chapter 6, "Selections, Masks, and Channels," gives a side-by-side view of the different methods of selecting pixels, accessing the selection tools, using masks, using channels, and so on. It's incredibly useful when looking up a familiar term or feature to instantly find its counterpart in the program you are learning.
The last section of the book, "The Artists," offers an inside view of how and why some artists approach projects in particular ways. The works of 19 digital artists and a descriptive paragraph from each provide insight, inspiration, and experience.
Photoshop, Painter, and Illustrator: Side by Side should be a trendsetter. Many people use numerous programs, all of a particular type, during the course of a project. This reference, describing and comparing both common and unique features, is timesaving and educational. --Mike Caputo
