5.0 out of 5 stars Cheat is a misnomer for this title, 25 Feb. 2012
This review is from: How to Cheat in Photoshop CS5: The art of creating realistic photomontages (Paperback)
To call this book "How to cheat in photoshop CS5" might give the impression to some that Steve Caplin is getting away with cheating the clients he does artwork for out of good artwork and design. However I recognise that his vast experience is informed by making digital images in the real world. I am certain that anyone who is thinking of using this book whilst working on Photoshop projects to deadlines will find it invaluable, as many of the smart techniques he employs address the usual challenges of seamlessly cutting out, blending and compositing - the usual stock in trade of a Photoshop artist. For those already using Photoshop on a regular basis, and who already have a cache of techniques and runarounds for dealing the most common image problems, this book will come as a gift as they will probably find that this is almost a one stop shop for smart and elgent solutions solving. For those who are just starting out in digital imaging, the book is still a valuable resource. Steve's narrative is logical, and begins with solving the basic problems. Then he goes onto demonstrate some everyday practical applications of these techniques, which every Photoshop user from beginner to expert will appreciate. I would however recommend to beginners that they also purchase a Quickstart guide, and begin to learn some of the basics before delving too deeply into this book, as they will gain far more from Steve's experience if they do.

Finally I think this is the best book of it's kind on the market, and thank Steve for some of his practical insights.
