There is no shortage of useful information on the new tools and features present in photoshop 7, and indeed there is nice coverage of the tools which were introduced with vers 6 which are often overlooked.
The way the book has been arranged and laid out works very well for the intended audience, and it gets straight down to facts, there is very little filler material, which some of the bigger photoshop books suffer from.
Lots of coverage of image correction and repair written very clearly and accesible for all level of photohsop users.
Suprisingly comprehensive, without being overly bulky, they seem to have fitted nearly everything into this book which would be of interest, and the more unrealsitic applications of the product are either briefly dealt with or in some case ommited.
I actually feel the photographic side could have been pushed even further, although the book does delve into things like IR film emulation and so on, the photographic side could have been pushed even further.
im suprised at the use of the Photoshop 7 sample images in the book, with a project like this it would have been preferable to use some new images wherever possible.
In some cases the results of an image correction seem a little dubious, occasionaly a more globally useful correction technique would have served better.
a good photoshop book for and introductory or intermediate user with a bent towards photographic uses. Easy to use and learn from. And most importantly the techniques and uses covered are everyday and realistic.
not an all encompasing guide to photoshop, but even for the advanced user there are some nice ideas and techniques, as well as good coverage of the newer interesting features.
This book is no 'light read' but it is packed with excellent advise on Photoshop. If you are a digital photography enthusiast and you use Photoshop 7 then this book will help you get the most from your hobby.
For example, the first 120 pages are devoted to colour space representation - of great interest to professional photographers but not really much use to those of us who will never go into print.
The videos accompanying the book serve to explain the contents of the book but the author frequently says: "then we click up here and over here..." leaving one wondering just where "here" actually is.
The guy certainly knows what he is talking about and he has improved my efficiency no end but I'd hate to give this book to someone just starting out with Photoshop.
