Amazon Review

In Photoshop Studio Secrets the authors, Deke McClelland and Katrin Eismann, have tracked down 21 artists using Photoshop in their day-to-day work, producing work of enormous diversity, both in terms of the techniques they use and the beautiful artwork they produce.

If you are looking for a Photoshop recipe book--with detailed step-by-step instructions on how to produce realistic-looking hairy fruit, or seamless grafting of power tools onto human limbs--you won't find it here. What you will find is fascinating in-depth discussion of techniques, ideas and approaches, offered by artists at the peak of their profession.

Mark Moor of Industrial Light & Magic shows how he goes about creating alien life forms, Swedish art director Ulrik Claesson uses layers and channels to "mimic nature's randomness" and Hirosho Goto combines traditional Japanese drawing and painting techniques with Photoshop.

The authors do more than just sit back and let the artist do the talking. Ron Chan, whose work you might have seen adorning Macromedia Director boxes, was persuaded to use Photoshop--something he had never before done--to enhance his vector illustration in ways he hadn't considered.

Two kinds of people will benefit from the knowledge and experience contained in these pages: those from an art background, with some experience of digital imagery who want to make more of Photoshop, but are unsure of its potential; and technically advanced users who are looking to take their work in a new direction.

McClelland, an acknowledged and respected Photoshop guru, says he himself has learned a lot from the contributing artists because they have developed methods that might be considered unorthodox. This is certainly a rich source of inspiration for all Photoshop users, regardless of expertise and experience. --Ken McMahon

Format: Paperback
I picked up my copy at MacWorld in January, right after publication. This book has been a wonderful inspiration. Many times I find myself off-line, reading this text, going through the "aha!" moments when I finally realize how these artists make their images.
A wonderful text for people that find themselves wondering how to tackle a wide range of projects, from Web to multimedia. The subject matter covers high-end commercial art, multimedia (including manipulating images & video for video, the web, & cd-rom), and my personal favorite, QTVR.
If you are just beginning to work with Photoshop, this book may be a bit too much. However, if you've put some hours into projects on the program, this might be just the book that you need to insipre, intrigue, and stimulate the creative juices.
Plus, it comes with a CD that is readable by Mac, & Wintel computers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money 18 Jun. 2000
By etype - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Like many of Deke M's books, this one is maximimised with dross in a effort to convince you to hand over your hard earned cash. Much of this book is a rehash of Phtsp 5, and i don't recommend that either. Macllelands aim here is to make money for himself and his publishers. If anyone is interested in a author who writes books on Photoshop, who is interested in teaching you amazing techniques, rather than spinning out the manual....look into Bert Monroys books, for a long time i spun my wheels geting caught in the trap of writers and pundits like Deke, who really have nothing to offer except a padding out of 23 pages of matieral into 500 in order to convince you to send your money his way. Then i finally found some real educators, wizards (like mentioned earlier) where my knowledge went from zero to hero with every single paragraph...and the books became more engrossing and enchanting every sentence right to the end....where one was exhausted with the extent one learned. I strongly advise readers to avoid Maclelland and his ilk...and look further

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but... 17 April 2000
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
if you own both PhotoShop Studio Secrets AND PhotoShop 5 Bible Gold Edition, you'll find that 14 out the 21 chapters in PhotoShop Studio Secrets are exactly the same as the PhotoShop 5 Bible Gold Edition...SO, if money is an issue, it's something to think about...

5.0 out of 5 stars This book gets an "F" for Fantastic <~~Corny, I know... 7 Feb. 2000
By Bruno Medeiros - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is great. I am a photoshop student (teaching myself) but I'm not a beginner, but not a photoshop guru either, this book is just right for all those people in between and even for the gurus. I was happy to fork over more than 40 bucks for this book. Hell, I think I'm going to buy 2 more to give as presents. I reccomend this book to anyone who is looking to pursue a job in the grpahics industry or who just want to make nifty looking graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Studio Secrets 2nd Edition is 1st Rate 4 Feb. 2000
By Louis Pena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
PhotoShop Studio Secrets 2nd edition is not your run-of-the-mill photoshop book. The authors do not waste your time by rehashing basic PhotoShop methods and deliver a great how-to for 21 different methods of pixel manipulation. Everything from using mutliple layers effeciently to editing photo-realistic mattes for high budget movies is explained in detail that even an intermediate photoshop user can apply. I tutor PhotoShop and this book is now my intermediate textbook. Hats off to Deke McClelland and Katrin Eismann.
