Good intro to Photoshop (NOT Elements) for photographers.
on 10 October 2015
I liked this book. It wasn't expensive (on Kindle) and it gives you sufficient information to get you going if you intend using Photoshop for photography. It doesn't cover some of the clever stuff like panoramas, HDR etc but really concentrates on layers, masks and the basic controls. I had doubts about buying a book like this for Kindle but it works well if you view it on a PC with the Kindle app. I have two screens so I can have the book on one and Photoshop running on the other. In spite of the book's relative brevity there is a lot of information there and it depends rather on you remembering the last bit in order to do the next part. I got confused working on masks so will have to go back a chapter or two and re-read it. Being told to 'use the alt-click technique that we learnt earlier' isn't helpful if you have already forgotten it! But I don't hold that against the author. The book rather assumes that you are going to use only Photoshop. Many photographers will use Lightroom for most things and Photoshop for the occasional file that needs more work. If you are one of those there are books aimed more specifically at this requirement. But for the price I paid for this on Kindle it's worth having anyway. Recommended.
