Conundrum of a read...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Photoshop Lab Color: The Canyon Conundrum and Other Adventures in the Most Powerful Colorspace (Paperback)
I agree with many of the previous reviews. This book takes a bit of reading even if you exclude the more "complex" explanations as suggested by the author. That said, I have immediately changed the way I process certain types of image. There are plenty of Lab techniques to learn and with a bit of re-reading, prove to be much better than RGB or Channels. In particular, I now use it for general saturation, noise reduction and sharpening. Its amazing how good Lab lends itself to these three processes, with less damage to the original image, especially sharpening artifacts.
It only gets 4 stars because, as stated, its a tough read/re-read book.
What an eye-opener!
