By Andy_atGC TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 July 2012
Format: Paperback
There was a broadly similar title from many years ago (relating to several versions of Photoshop up to at least 6 or 7, pre CS), the author of which I cannot now recall. This is a considerably better all-round effort and largely example-led.

Many of its pages are fully illustrated and most of the remainder are vertically split two-thirds for screen captures and one-third for explanations of each. The book does not appear crowded and employs an easy-to-use format.

The book is divided into chapters, but they are not text laden. The chapters are task oriented and the screen captures are used to guide the reader through the process from Step 1 through to Step 6 or whatever. This is probably the best approach for a learning situation in that you are seeing in the book a representation of what should be in front of you on-screen. In this way, if you have not fully understood something, you can return to Step 1 or Step 3 and re-work the task. There is therefore no reason why you may not wish to return to a chapter at some future date to try something that may not have held any previous relevance, or for revision. The book can, and possibly should, occupy a position of importance in many Photoshop users' collections.

Although its sub-title suggests that it may be more for the designer than the more general user, that may be true to an extent but there is something here for a far wider audience, if not just about any moderately advanced or advanced user of Photoshop. It may also benefit graphic artists and illustrators.

Corey Barker, the author, has done an excellent job here for which he should be commended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
as per normal from the writers of most photoshop books, this book shows you some tricks and how to`s but also shows you how things like the fibre filter can transform a pic in a huge way along with ather things that you would proberbly not even think you could do. a welccome addition to the rest of my books. it would be nice if they did not keep using a load of stuff from prevoius books as it mostly seems like im just bying an upgrade book, it has exacly the same pages as the previous book but with only half of the book be ing new

Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers

As a fan of the series of Down and Dirty books from Kelby media I was looking forward to this version the minute it was announced. The fact that I knew Corey was writing it on his own was a massive bonus. He had contributed to the CS4 Scott Kelby version for 3D but this time its 100% Mr Barker and he has not only taken the torch but also seriously raised the bar on Photoshop Designer books. This is the 'go to' book if you want to learn some amazing creative techniques. Corey finds things even Photoshop probably didn't know it could do !
With each section he builds from the very beginning and builds each image showing you all the methods and tricks avaialble to create fantastic end results. Then he takes another image and applies the same process to show the versatility of Photoshop CS5 for serious designers. I purchased the kindle version as i was too impatient to wait for the hard copy but I feel a purchase of the paperback coming on after Christmas as this is the book I want next to my Mac at all times. The other beauty of Corey's teaching methods is that you can take any of the 'tricks' and combine and experiment with them to create new effects. With a large shift towards Photography at NAPP & Kelby training it is great to know design and creativity is in the safest of hands.
If you love Photoshop and design then this is the Bible - if you are a photographer you should still get this book and it will help take your images to a new level. It's very much a 'Wow' book as that is the sound you will make many times whilst going through each chapter.
I strongly recommend signing up for [...] to watch Corey's classes on there. There is also a ton of creative tutorials over at his website at planetphotoshop.com and kelbytv.com.

So in summary - buy this book today !!

This book is definitely able to take your PS experience to the next level. 4 stars only because the examples are a bit lacking in explaining why you would use certain settings. On the other hand, it makes you experiment more and that's never a bad thing.
Highly recommended for experienced and beginner PS users alike.

Excellent
Why? Easy to follow examples.
Examples that actually are relevant to photographers.

This book could have been a bit messy, but thankfully is written in easy to follow bite sized chunks.

Can recommend for people to buy with there hard earned cash

What a great book; easy to follow and the best book I have come across with projects. Unlike other books that miss out "key" information - this book gives great instruction. Corey Barker was great on Layers TV and the book reflects his ability to teach.

Good choice of examples to introduce methods that I found difficult to unravel, though at times I found it difficult to exactly reproduce the process and results using CC. Every project has useful tips and practice.
