Product Description


"This is not some reprint of an old book, but new text with tons of great, new ideas on how to polish your images. Our capture devises while good don’t capture everything we see. Our images also go to many places, not just the computer monitor. Scott’s book is full of techniques for cleaning up color, sharpening, presentation either by print, web gallery or a host of other ideas, organization, black and white conversion and the list just goes on and on. And all of these techniques take advantage of all the power and ease of Photoshop CS3.This is one monster of a book!"  -- Moose Peterson,

“In my opinion, The Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book is one of those books that contains so much information that it really is a must have. If you are a beginner to Photoshop, you will have everything you need to create better photos. You will be able to learn things in a step-by-step approach that will fine tune your learning. If you are experienced, The Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book will fill in many of the holes that you may have because of the depth and breath of Photoshop itself.” -- T. Michael Testi, Blogcritics

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Photoshop is no doubt a huge and complex program. And I find many books on this type of software, no matter how many colour illustrations they use, to be very dry reading. This book on the other hand, does not set out to be one of these bibles. It is aimed squarely at the digital photographer and techniques that are more common to post processing (touch-ups, tweaking). And in that regard the book is superb- the processes are clear, step by step, and it's almost like getting a hands on session with a pro. Various sharpening, colour improvement, black & white, and skin softening techniques are offered, as well as things like whitening teeth, eliminating wrinkles, softening bright spots, and even dealing with double chins, love handles and performing digital nose jobs!
If I could have given the book 4.5 stars I would have. I am only taking away from a perfect score because almost nothing's perfect, the author uses too many keyboard shortcuts without including the menu/mouse-click equivalents, and his attempts at humour are...well let's just say I for one don't need to be "tickled" while I read an instructional book.

Format: Paperback
Scott Kelby's humouous writing style makes this a very easy and interesting book to read. When I first started reading the section on Adobe Bridge, I had no idea what it was, didn't even know that I had Bridge, and had no intentions of using it. But after reading this chapter, I started using it, and actually found out that Bridge is exactly what I needed right now. Perfect timing. I'm looking forward to doing all the lessons in the book, the step by step instructions really work.

a great book for someone starting up in photography and learning how to use Photoshop. You don't get to use every available tool in Photoshop. For that, you'll probably need a book dedicated to Photoshop CS3. But this book gives some very practical uses for a photographer.

Scott Kelby is an excellent 'people's' author. This book provided so much insight into layers, skin touchups and professionalism through photography. His tips and tricks are quick, effective and subtle. I love this book and I am a huge advocate of his other products. Would highly recommend this book (apply it to Cs4 or earlier versions if need be). BONUS - the white balance card that it came with was a great addition :)
