Acclaimed Photoshop expert Scott Kelby has released the eagerly awaited update to his bestselling series, The Adobe Photoshop CS5 Book for Digital Photographers, and like his other award winning titles, this is a must have book.
Just about everyone who owns a camera, a computer and a copy of Photoshop knows that Scott Kelby is the world’s leading expert on Photoshop. And anyone who’s read his books, knows that he doesn’t just talk theory or list each of the tools and explain what they do in technical terms, he tells you exactly how to use them to get professional results.
In this highly practical book, Scott presents the information in his easy to read, down to earth style and he leads you, step by step through the most common digital imaging solutions. He shows you the exact methods and techniques that the pros use to edit, sharpen, color correct and process their images and he guides you through the most efficient path towards achieving professional quality results from your imagery.
Adobe packed a host of new features into Photoshop CS5 and this book shows you how to master the latest tools, such as Content-Aware Fill. It also shows you how to calibrate your printer to your monitor so that your prints match what’s on your computer screen and how to use Camera RAW’s new features to process your RAW images with speed and efficiency.
Kelby uses real world examples for each technique, and not only shows you how to effectively navigate through CS5’s featured filled tool palette, he gives you insider tips, time saving workarounds and explains exactly how and why to use the settings that professional imaging experts use to process their photos in order to increase your productivity.
The book also includes a “Killer Photoshop Tips” section, a chapter on how to process HDR, or “High Dynamic Range” images, and a special bonus chapter that outlines Scott Kelby’s own CS5 workflow from start to finish.
I highly recommend The Adobe Photoshop CS5 Book for Digital Photographers to anyone serious about digital imaging, even if you’re just learning Photoshop. It’s definitely the best book on the subject and it has gotten exceptional reviews across the board. If you’re only going to own one Photoshop book for CS5, it should be this one.
