Great book for both beginners and experienced users
on 19 June 2007
The last book from the 'Classroom in a Book' series I purchased was a German Edition of Classroom in A Book for Photoshop 6. Because I've found that one quite useful and understandable a few years ago, I decided to buy the current book of that series to get a little fresh information and update my knowledge. Furthermore I wanted a book in English because I'm working with the English version of Photoshop.
Unfortunately this book was not yet available at Amazon Germany (I'm talking about the original language, not the translated version!), so I ordered it from UK and did not regret this decision.
This book covers the following subjects:
Getting to Know the Work Area
Basic Photo Corrections
Retouching and Repairing
Working with Selections
Masks and Channels
Correcting and Enhancing Digital Photographs
Vector Drawing Techniques
Preparing Files for the Web
Working with Scientific Images
Producing and Printing Consistent Color
The book is completely printed in color, the example projects help very good in practising the topics described in the book. You get both basic information and tips for experienced users. If you want to learn about new CS3 features such as Smart Filters, the Zoomify tool or the Quick Selection Tool you also won't be disappointed.
The attached CD includes the training files which you need for the lessons and also 16 interesting movie tutorials.
In my opinion you get here an interesting Photoshop book for a fair price.
