About the Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book
Adobe Photoshop CS3 for Photographers begins with an introduction to all the new features in Photoshop CS3, followed by an overview of the Photoshop interface and the fundamentals of how to use Photoshop, followed by how to configure and optimize your computer's performance to run the program and then it dives straight into the essentials of image editing. The basic pixel image editing chapter outlines how to work with all the basic image adjustment tools that are in the program, some of which have been there since the very beginning. The following chapter then goes on to explain the alternative options such as when you use Camera Raw in Photoshop to process your digital capture images.
Practical workshops show you how to master the essential techniques, such as optimizing an image for prepress, color correction, retouching techniques, layers palette management, toning a black and white image, rendering textures and so on. Each technique is described in step-by-step detail, showing exactly which command to use, whether you are working with a Mac or PC computer.
The accompanying DVD contains a Photoshop for Photographers Help Guide. This is supplied in a web browser format that you can either run from the DVD or copy over to your computer hard disk for off-line viewing. The Help Guide contains a complete guide to all the tools and palettes in Photoshop as well as other items in the program. It is like having an off-line manual with which to learn more about what each Photoshop tool and palette does. The guide also provides 110 minutes of movie tutorials on Photoshop CS3.
Also on the DVD is a 33 page PDF documenting all the Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge shortcuts, a 26 page PDF on digital capture and over 100 sample images to experiment with.
If you are just beginning to work with digital images or are looking for new ideas, the best techniques and ways to improve the quality of your work, this is the book for you!
