Product description

From the Back Cover

This edition of the Visual QuickStart Guide to Photoshop CS4 by bestselling authors Elaine Weinmann and Peter Lourekas covers Adobe Photoshop as well as Adobe Bridge and Adobe Camera Raw (which are included with Photoshop). The elegant layout and full-color photographs make the book not only visually appealing, but also easy to use. Tasks are presented as clear, step-by-step instructions. Most of the photos appearing in the book are available to readers to download so they can follow along closely with the instructions.

New and updated Photoshop program features are clearly marked with bright orange stars, so users already familiar with Photoshop can update their knowledge quickly. Major new features that are covered in this edition include workspace options in Photoshop, the Adjustments and Masks panels, and the new Bridge interface. Less publicized features are also covered, such as tool options and keyboard shortcuts.

This new edition also covers color management; workspaces; layers; selections; masking; compositing techniques; the History panel; blending modes; brushes; exposure, tonal, color and focus adjustments; retouching; layer styles; filters; type features; gradients; PDF presentation packages; preferences; presets; and more. Readers will learn everything they need to know to get a good working knowledge of Photoshop.

The book arrived within three days and was in excellent condition. This is the first time I have used a Visual QuickStart Guide and so far I have been impressed with the layout and the quality of the information given. Compared with my previous experience of the Dummies series this guide uses a more helpful visual step by step approach for each item it is covering. The guide also covers the subject matter very thoroughly and has plenty of examples to help you become more familiar with CS4. An excellent buy at a very good price.

Whenever I need a software guide, I serach the Amazon website to see if there is a 'Visual Quickstart Guide' for the product. If I find one, which I always seem to do, I look no further. These guides are full of useful 'tips and tricks' and serve as a self-teach for new users and a very handy reference for those with more experience.
In my view, these guides set the standard that others need to follow, and the Photoshop CS4 guide is no exception.

I have one of these books for each new application that I buy.
They're quick and easy to pick up, find an answer, put down and get on with it.
I would highly recommend this and all other Visual QuickStart guides for beginners and intermediate users who want to use the programs without spending hours with a manual.
