This review is from: Professional Photoshop: The Classic Guide to Color Correction (Paperback)
A classic of professional photo-processing .Very clearly and entertainingly written .To read the 1st 3 chapters is to grasp the principles of processing .This is not for the lovers of quick fix fancy tools ;it deals with getting the fundamentals of getting the basic image as right as can be and gives an understanding of why this is the only sound basis for using the tools for the detailed stuff later . he has some annoying habits e,g,giving his curves illustrations the opposite way around and up to the way most of us use them .He gives his good reasons for this ,but to me the greatest value of the quirk is that it forces me to think what an adjustment does to the light and the image ,rather than as a sort of ritual alteration of the curve on the screen .THIS IS NOT A PHOTOSHOP RECIPE BOOK - It will make you think about how the system works and why ,and with a bit of luck understand . A book that will help you to master what can be done with your images .-A book to keep, use, read and re-read .
