Book Description

2 Aug 2007 In Easy Steps
With such a rich, powerful and varied set of tools and commands in Photoshop CS3, where do you begin? Facing such a steep learning curve, many users achieve only the first few levels of proficiency. Photoshop CS3 in easy steps is designed to activate the full potential in the extensive Photoshop feature set. It achieves this by breaking down the application into a logical sequence of learning events. The book begins with a detailed tutorial on essential concepts and terms, introducing you to the Photoshop screen environment and its vocabulary. Then with easy step-by-step instructions and fact-filled sidebars, the primer walks you through the fundamental aspects of this image-editing application.

Photoshop CS3 in easy steps, completely revised, builds on its established reputation to guide you through the essentials of image file formats; making and refining selections; painting and editing; working with layers, paths and the pen tool, channels and masks; and color correction techniques. It doesn't stop there. As well as introducing new and enhanced features such as the Black & White command, Smart Filters, the Quick Selection tool, the Refine Edge command, and the Auto Align and Blend Layer controls, the book's final chapters cover applications in the ever-growing field of web and multimedia images. These chapters teach even relative novices the ABCs of slicing, image optimization and animations.

Adobe Photoshop CS3 sets the standard for professional image-editing. Photoshop CS3 in easy steps, with its clear instructions and plentiful screenshots, brings the full potential of this exciting creative tool to your fingertips.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do what it says on the label 26 Jan 2009
If you were a competent graphic artist fully conversant with a similar program to photoshop this might be a good introduction to photoshop. For beginners like me it's certainly not "photoshop in easy steps". The problem is it tells you how to do something with absolutely no help as why or when you would want to do it. For example chapter 11 is "channels and masks" Now as a beginner I don't know what these are or what I would/could use them for. It doesn't say and dives in with "In quick mask mode you create a 50% red, semi-transparent overlay. The overlay is similar in concept to a traditional rubylith mask". Which to be honest doesn't make me any wiser. Similarly "Editing alpha channel masks - You can display an alpha channel without loading it into the image as a selection. You can then edit the mask by painting with black white or grey". Why I would do that I have absolutely no idea and the book doesn't tell me.
If you looking for an entry level book, despite its title this is not it, look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars don't let the cheap price put you off 1 April 2008
By amir m
the thing about instructional books is that the good ones tend to be bulky and quite expensive - there are exceptions, and this book is one of them. concise (not too thick), nicely illustrated in colour, easy to understand and follow. if you're new to photoshop then this is ideal to get you up and running. for the casual user it's also useful especially with the more in-depth functions of the programme. i'd say i'm more than a casual user and this book consolidates and sharpens abilities for heavier users while encouraging the exploration of functions the user might not have contemplated or used. give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me get to grips with CS 3 11 Oct 2013
By Mr. Richard The book boy TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good book to get you going with the basics of Photoshop CS3. I managed to work out layers and cut-outs using this book in a few hours so for me it has been worth every penny.

There are plenty of screen shots, hints and tips etc. The writing is clear, concise and easy to follow using step by step methods.
I have used other books in the @In easy steps' series and they are generally very good for beginners and some more advanced tasks.
I bought this book in the Amazon market second-hand for very little money but it has done wonders for my CS 3 editing. A great series of how to guides.
