This update is so important, because if there was ever a version of Photoshop that was aimed at digital photographers, Photoshop CS is it, and "The Photoshop CS Book for Digital Photographers" by Scott Kelby (Editor of Photoshop User magazine) once again breaks new ground by doing 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, it shows you step by step the exact techniques used by today's cutting-edge digital photographers and retouchers, and it does something that virtually no other Photoshop book has ever done -- it tells you, flat-out, which settings to use, when to use them, and why.

If you're looking for one of those "tell-me-everything-about-the-Unsharp-Mask-filter" books, this isn't it. You can grab any other Photoshop book on the shelf, because they all do that. Instead, this book gives you the inside tips and tricks of the trade that today's leading pros use to correct, edit, sharpen, retouch, and present their photos to some of the most demanding clients on the planet. You'll be absolutely amazed at how easy and effective they are--once you know the secrets.

LEARN HOW THE PROS DO IT Each year Scott trains thousands of professional photographers how to use Photoshop, and almost without exception they have the same questions and the same problems -- that's exactly what Scott covers in this book. You'll learn:

  • The secrets of how the pros retouch portraits
  • How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat (you'll be amazed at how they do it!)
  • How to unlock the power of Photoshop CS' new features for digital photo pros
  • Amazing digital body-sculpting techniques
  • How the pros use CS' File Browser (it's much more powerful than you think)
  • Tricks that can send your productivity through the roof
  • The sharpening techniques the pros really use (there's an entire chapter just on this!)
  • How to deal with common digital camera image problems
  • Removing noise, avoiding halos, and protecting your images
  • How to use Match Color, The Color Replacement Tool, and other amazing CS tools.
  • Masking techniques for photographers
  • The most-requested photographic special effects
  • and much more!
Photoshop CS is THE tool for digital photographers, and this book show you exactly how to put it's power to work for you today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money. May 31 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I love this book. When I bought it, it was not discounted and it was around $70 and I hemmed and hawed but it was so worth it. There is an implication that it is for professional digital photographers but don't let that sway you too much. I'm far from professional and have found this book to be absolutely worthwile. It's a must have if you own CS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for casual users of Photoshop Oct. 21 2004
Format:Paperback
If you are like me, who enjoy taking pictures more than spending endless hours learning Photoshop, you will like this book as it is organized in such a way that you can directly jump into the chapters that deal with problems that people want to solve with Photoshop. Through step-by-step instructions supported by lots of color pictures, the author shows you how to do it.
If you forget the commands after a few days, it is very easy to follow the instructions and examples again next time you need to know how to do it.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to quickly learn the most useful functions to improve digital images.

Everything you wanted in digital photography instruction, for the beginner and intermediate photographer using Photoshop CS, is in this book. The instruction is clear, concise and in ordinary, plain old English. It is an excellent purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book for Beginers July 14 2004
Format:Paperback
Recently I read four of the books currently available for Photoshop CS . This book was one of them and it was the weakest in terms of both the style of writing and content.\\
The author points out that he wrote the book "because not one other book he reviewed covered digital noise". I do have to give him some credit here because digital noise is not addressed in most of the other books. The problem is this is the only issue that I found to be unique to this book.
Overall, I guess in an attempt to lighten up the subject you are subjected to endless silly little joking followed by very simplistic techniques for handling various digital imaging problems.
This book my actually be fine for a beginner or someone that does not want to really understand the subject. For me it was a dissapointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and excellent July 6 2004
Format:Paperback
I found this to be well-written & easy to follow. I bought it for the techniques, & being a new Photoshop user I wanted to start doing things rather than wade through a bible. Well worth the investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny and Then Some!!! June 27 2004
Format:Paperback
I had been playing around a little in Photoshop Elements for a few months and then took advantage of a GREAT upgrade price to Photoshop CS. I had read where others used CS and LOVED the curves feature and actions... all these things and while I was trying to figure out what made them great, I was not getting the professional results I wanted.
I opened this book and immediately did some incredible stuff in Photoshop CS and I am basically new to the program. He has a great writing style...does not bore you with the stuff that bogs you down in other books to the point you feel like you aren't getting anywhere. He gives you initial settings so you can see fast results then teaches you how to customize if you want to go there.
Just a great book!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars neat photoshop fixes for photographers May 30 2004
Format:Paperback
Happily, I found much more in here than I expected. Kelby knows his stuff, has it well organized, explains it in perfect detail. You won't get lost in extracting a subject from a photo or doing a little body work to make a good picture great. We all wanted to know how to do those little tummy tucks . . . Kelby saves us a lot of work by showing how to do it right the first time. You will not waste time digging for the right method, it's right here, and he makes it simple to follow.
One complaint: While he uses nice color photos throughout, the top 1 3/4 inches is devoted to title and a narrow photo strip. A lot of wasted real estate in a book only 375 numbered pages long. While the chapters are started with excellent photos, most the photos highlighting the technics are rather boring, but all are useful to illustrate his point. A few were down right annoying (subjective judgement - but that's my perception). Overall, a highly valued, worthwhile addition to my photoshop library, I'm impressed with the technical information, which is what I bought it for.
