Product Details


Product Description

From the Publisher

Yes, this is the very same book that’s been among the best-selling Photoshop 6 books since its release. Why is New Riders now publishing it? Because we’re proud to be partners-in-publishing with Scott Kelby and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).

Nothing has changed in the book: if you already own the NAPP-published version of this book, you’ve got everything you need. But if you’re serious about Photoshop and you don’t 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 that’s made this book an instant classic.

From the Back Cover

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:

  • Amazing chrome and metallic effects
  • How to create those dazzling high-tech Web interfaces
  • Cool 3D effects using Photoshop's own filters
  • Shadow techniques that the pros really use
  • Instant texture and background effects
  • The most requested advertising effects

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tips Dec 15 2011
By Bert
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book and it has LOTS of great tips to use in Photoshop, but I must be honest, I didn't really read it all. I mostly use it as a referrence, so I don't know if my review is good enough to go by, but for what it's worth. I don't regret buying it, and I'm glad I have it in my book shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to know the whole program Jan. 7 2003
Format:Paperback
This book allowed me to make things with Photoshop 6 even though I did not understand the whole program. Also introduced me to some of the features so I could use them later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost too good. Aug. 16 2002
Format:Paperback
This book explains so many amazing techniques, I want to hide every copy that I can find at the bookstores. The only thing I don't get is Scott Kelby's misunderstanding of how things reflect. Scott needs to take some photographs of actual reflected objects and take some notes. Other than that, this is my absolute favorite Photoshop book out of 3 that I own. By the way, Photoshop 7 Down & Dirty Tricks has almost all new tricks. Seriously worth a look.

Format:Paperback
I got Photoshop 6 Down and Dirty Tricks at the COMDEX 2002 show in Chicago a little over two weeks ago. I don't think I've put it down since then! I use PH all the time with FrontPage 2002 to boost FP's capabilities, and let me tell you, I'm looking like a PHAT (read:kewl) Web Designer thanks to Scott Kelby! I intend on subscribing to PH Users Mag, not to mention preordering PH 7 Down and Dirty Tricks! I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. Scott has made it possible for People like me working for certification and learning products to make kewl Web sites! Thanks, Scott!
