5.0 out of 5 stars What, why, where, and how in CS4..., 26 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: A Professional Image Editor's Guide to the Creative use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC (Paperback)
Until now I have been a Martin Evening virgin. One of the first things to strike me about the book was the quality of the images and screenshots, I know it's Photoshop and they should be good, well they really are!! The mans knowledge on this subject is just phenomenal. The book does not cover everything, but still its huge. You won't be taking it with you on photo shoots. The pages have notes and tips scattered throughout the book, on the margins of each page. The DVD includes some chapters and also includes some .pdf files on subjects which are mentioned in the book but not covered, along with about 2 hours of tutorial footage.

The book really covers the difference and improvements between CS3 and CS4. I thought that the organization of the chapters, was well thought out and successfully delivered. Martin has the ability to explain and describe CS4 functionality down to a fine art. I found the chapter on ACR to be a great help, with each function being explained to help you understand how making adjustments can enhance your images. Martin also goes into great detail on Colour workspace, the different workspaces available what they are for, what you should use and why.

This is a fantastic reference book, and honestly I keep it to hand every time I plug in my camera.
