Top critical review
Not as good as I expected
on 5 July 2013
I saw the uniformly excellent reviews and bought the book. It is good and I have found it useful for quite a few processing operations.
BUT, it seems more for graphic artists than photographers to me. I had to go to the Net to find where the lens correction was (it is one of several 'distortion' filters. Deke doesn't mention removing distortion - only adding it to a picture of his son to make him look like a mutant.
Maybe there is a book on CS2 which is more for photographers who want to gently enhance rather than seriously doctor their images.
I doubt that I shall do graphic tricks like putting clouds in a plain sky and so on.
