Top Customer Reviews
I already learned so much from the book and I'm only half-way through it.
I had so many questions about all the various options and features, and sometime I would dare try something, it would result in turning the image in black areas! After reading some chapters, I now know it was just a very useful feature of Photoshop that I can use to my advantage, but since I did not know what I was doing, I stopped exploring.
But I never lost my curiosity or need to know how everything worked. I'd browsed through books in stores and came across this one, loved the humor and the step-by-step, I chose this book to order.
I'm having so much fun, plus, it changed how I take photos knowing what can be done and how! It is very liberating.
I'm not saying that you'll know every thing all at once, I'm saying you will know of the 'potentials', know where to look to learn more, and you won't be afraid to explore them with this book.
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.
