Book Description

Dec 22 2008 0321580095 978-0321580092 1
Scott Kelby, the best-selling Photoshop author in the world today, once again takes this book to a whole new level as he uncovers the latest, most important, and most exciting new Adobe Photoshop CS4 techniques for digital photographers. This major update to his award-winning, record-breaking book does something for digital photographers that’s never been done before—it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly “how to do it.” It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure it out on your own. Instead, Scott shows you step-by-step the exact techniques used by today’s cutting-edge digital photographers, and best of all, he shows you flat-out exactly which settings to use, when to use them, and why. That’s why the previous editions of this book are widely used as the official study guide in photography courses at colleges and universities around the world.

Each year Scott trains thousands of professional photographers how to use Photoshop, and almost without exception they have the same questions, the same problems, and the same challenges—and that’s exactly what he covers in this book. You’ll learn:

• The sharpening techniques the pros really use.
• The pros’ tricks for fixing the most common digital photo problems fast!
• The step-by-step setup for getting what comes out of your printer to match exactly what you see onscreen.
• A whole chapter on how to process HDR (High Dynamic Range) images.
• How to master new CS4 interface and workflow features.
• How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat.
• How to process RAW digital camera images (plus how to take advantage of all the new Camera Raw features in CS4!).
• How to add real automation to your work.
• How to show your work like a pro!
• A host of shortcuts, workarounds, and slick “insider” tricks to send your productivity through the roof!

Plus, Scott included a special bonus chapter with his own CS4 workflow, from start to finish. If you’re a digital photographer, and you’re ready to learn the “tricks of the trade”—the same ones that today’s leading pros use to correct, edit, sharpen, retouch, and present their work—then you’re holding the book that will do just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book Feb. 28 2009
I bought this book after taking a Photoshop course in which I was lost alot of the time. After coming home from the class, I would use the book and its excellent step by step directions to help clarify what I had learned in my course. The book is very easy to understand and you can follow along step by step as Scott leads you through the steps in Photoshop. I would highly recommend this book and I am sure I will put it to good use for many years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Coverage of the Topic Sept. 25 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Recently, I purchased several books on CS4, each dealing with a different aspect. This one provides excellent coverage of Photoshop's Camera oriented capabilities. It has a Lab rather than a Lecture approach, well worth the money

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than most but still a few bugs June 22 2009
By Rob F
This is the second of Scott Kelby's books I have purchased.
While they are generally very straight forward and easy to read
I still occassionally noticed that some of the more basic information is still absent or difficult to find.
Something as simple as digitally processing a scanned film negative should be pretty straight forward and easy to find as many photographers still have a lot of good work on film to transfer.
Why does Kelby not address it?
The answer: Because CS4 doesn't address it either. What's up with that?

In spite of little things like this occassionally cropping up, Kelby's books do take a program as complex as Photoshop and make it readily accessible to the potographer who can't afford to devote weeks(if not months)to figuring out a highly complex yet extremely useful digital processing system. His are still the titles that jump out when I need to figure stuff out on the fly.

Good, easy to understand, love Kelby products and will order another book if it has more enhancing tricks such as frames, adding rainbows, fogs...
