Nothing has changed in the book: if you already own the NAPP-published version of this book, youve got everything you need. But if youre serious about Photoshop and you dont own this book, check it out. No other title is so packed with vital, intriguing tips and techniques. You get this stuff in a hurry, too; the content is truly the quick and dirty on how to get the most out of Photoshop. And where New Riders Photoshop Magic books each dig into stepped-out procedures that are an average of 15-to-20 pages long (think of them as being in-depth lessons), Scott cuts to the quick and loads his book with the kind of time-saving and high-quality material thats made this book an instant classic.
Down & Dirty Tricks is packed cover to cover with step-by-step tutorials on the coolest Photoshop 6.0 effects. The book is not another rehash of masking, pixels, and file formats or resolution--it's nothing but the cool stuff that will make your client's (or boss's) jaw drop.
Plus, it's an awesome Photoshop tips book too! That's because next to every tutorial, on every single page, there's a sidebar with a timesaving Photoshop 6.0 tip, trick, shortcut, or real-world technique to save you time, money, and make you more efficient. Written in plain English, you can jump in anywhere; simply open the book to the effect you want to create and follow along. It's that easy (and that much fun!).
Among many other tricks, the reader will learn:
