Product Description

From the Publisher

This is a full color inspirations title from friends of ED, aimed showing professionals and home users alike how to access the multiplicity of techniques available in Adobe Photoshop. By using such a familiar model as the human face, the effectiveness and originality of these techniques is thrown into sharp relief.

The book employs versions of Photoshop up to the brand new release Version 7, although the techniques shown will be compatible with previous releases of the software.

Each chapter contains multiple examples of how to treat a face in Photoshop, and an in-depth explanation of technique from the designer.

If you are looking at this book for an in depth guide to facial retouching from a realistic point of view, then this probably isn't the book for you. There's only a small first chapter covering red eye removal and sorting out blemishes.
However, if you are into turning your friends faces into horror show freaks, or fantasy beings, then this book will be of great interest to you.
There's also an interesting section on imitating the different styles of the the art world.
The book is well illustrated and easy to follow.

This book is really great! The cool ideas for facial touch-up/reconstruction/decomposition/etc. are simpy so alluring you'll throw yourself over Photoshop after the first few pages... The Authors of the book each have a completely different take on the concept of faces vs. Photoshop... From "simply" enhancing the look of portrait photography, through fun/weird effects, to creating cool works of art based on the human face... You'll love it!

HASH(0x90f891ec) out of 5 stars Good for more than faces! 19 Sept. 2002
By Simon - Published on
Format: Paperback
I picked up this book a couple of weeks ago, and have'nt put it down. I've been spending the whole time making works of art (if I say so myself) out of my own pictures. This book just cuts right to the chase, and tells you straightaway how to do some really cool stuff. What surprised me was how easy it is to do some of the best looking effects.
You even get to make that lush cover image (plus wings!), and a bunch of others in there that are even better. I took about two days just doing a bunch of different variations making "realistic" fairy wings, so this book's more than just about faces. There's paint techniques (how to get proper thick-looking oil paint), and some freaky stuff about making babies faces scary. There's loads of little variations and hints and tips about stuff I never even thought about doing. This has got to be the best book I've bought for just making you get down and DO IT. A real recommendation.

HASH(0x90f895f4) out of 5 stars Not for the beginner or faint of heart... 20 Mar. 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
As you may be able to tell by a couple of the unfortunate reviews of this book, you will not want to purchase ' Photoshop Face to Face' if you are new to Photoshop. It is a book for the experienced user, kind of a treat to those who have spent hours of training in a program no one would call simple to use.
So, if you consider yourself an intermediate or above user and would like to learn some skills which will benefit anyone's resume (while having a blast doing it), buy this book. On the other hand, if you are a new user to Photoshop and get frustrated without very specific open-this, close-that type of instructions, you may want to pass on this one and choose one of the hundreds of books dedicated to beginners (after all, we all had to start somewhere).
Just my two and a half cents,

HASH(0x90f8966c) out of 5 stars Poor writing and poor retouching 22 April 2003
By Kevin Connery - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book hoping it would provides ways to improve my retouching skills/techniques. That turned out not to be the case.
The sample images are largely poor starting points, but the work done takes many more steps than other, widely known, techniques, AND result in images that are worse than the originals: the retouching is obvious and intrusive, and the reason for that is the technique as much as the execution of it.
If you're a Photoshop novice, the missing steps will confuse you. If you're an advanced user, you'll realize that the recommended approaches are harder than they need to be, and give results worse than easier methods.
Some interesting concepts from the authors, but it's not a Photoshop book I could recommend to anyone.

HASH(0x90f899fc) out of 5 stars major disappointment!!!! 28 Oct. 2003
By Mr. Rose - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i got excited when i saw this book on the market as i thought it would have information on producing "model" quality images, but that is not the case. There are roughly only 25 pages devoted to the topic which is a small percentage when you consider the book has 247 pages. If you're looking for a book that truly covers Facial Image Retouching you WILL not find it in this book.

HASH(0x90f89a2c) out of 5 stars Good ideas for advanced Photoshoppers 27 April 2003
By Bongo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has some really good ideas. The writing is somewhat conversational, not cookbook-style, so it's true that beginners could be easily lost. If you've taken the time to learn Photoshop you won't have a problem. If you've tryed to shirk your way through it, and think this book will help you continue on that path with a bunch of step-by-step how-to instructions, you'll be disappointed.
