I'm a professional photographer (& graduate) who uses photoshop every day & I couldn't follow any of this book. Examples are not explained in anything like enough detail to be of use to anyone other than the most expert of users & to claim the book is suitable for beginners, well that's just not true. Also the language is hard to follow. Sorry, but I don't have anything good to say about this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it. Can't do that. 8 Sept. 2004
By Larry T. Slater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Maybe I've just seen too many books on digital photography hoping to gain an understanding of the eye-popping special effects they claim to tell you how to re-create. Maybe I have too high of hopes that I would actually be able to create those images the book covers claim I will be able to re-create. But I am sure that even after reading this book and enjoying the great images, I could never create those same images, even after following the sketchy instructions. So if you are expecting a recipe book that will hold your hand as you re-create these fantastic special effects using digital photography, you will be disappointed. But if you want a good overview of what special effects are and how in general they are created, then this book is what you want. But then, maybe it's just because I couldn't create a special effect if I lived at Dream Works for a year; or two.
