Photoshop CS Bible
- Scott Kelby, President, National Association of Photoshop Professionals
"When someone asks me something I don't know about Photoshop, I tell them to go read the Photoshop Bible. It does something no other book does - it tells you everything."
- Russell Preston Brown, Senior Creative Director, Adobe Systems
World-renowned Photoshop expert and Hall of Famer Deke McClelland has earned more than 20 industry awards and written over 60 books on computer graphics and design with more than 3 million copies in print. Now, in this thoroughly updated edition of his international bestseller, McClelland shows you how to master every aspect of Photoshop CS - from image-editing basics to new techniques for working with the File Browser, layer comps, Lens Blur, Match Color, the color replacement tool, customizable keyboard shortcuts, camera raw images, and more.
* Get creative with text on a path
* Give bad color the slip with the Match Color command
* Give images a colorful new look with the color replacement tool
* Create depth-of-field effects with the Lens Blur filter
His most sinister books are the award-winning Photoshop CS Bible and Photoshop CS Bible, Professional Edition (www.amazon.com/deke), now in their eleventh year with more copies in print than any other guides on computer graphics. Other subversive titles include Photoshop CS For Dummies, Photoshop Elements For Dummies (both Wil ey Publishing, Inc.), and Real World Illustrator (Peachpit Press).
Deke further shocks and appalls as host of the interactive “Video Workshop” that ships with Photoshop as well as the fiendishly exhaustive Total Training for Adobe Photoshop CS (www.totaltraining.com), the predecessor of which was named Training Product of the Year by MacNet 2.0. His other DVD- and CD-based video series include Digital Photography with Photoshop Elements and Total Training for Adobe Illustrator CS (both Total Training).
In 1989, Deke won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Computer Book. Since then, he has received similarly diabolical honors from the Society for Technical Communication (once in 1994 and twice in 1999),Photo>Electronic Imaging (1999), the American Society of Business Press Editors (1995 and 2000), the Western Publications Association (1999), and the Computer Press Association (1990, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1997, and twice in 2000). In 1999, Book Bytes named Deke its Author of the Year. In 2002, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals voted Deke into the Photoshop Hall of Fame.
During his fall from grace, Deke has also managed to become an Adobe Certified Expert, a member of the PhotoshopWorld Instructor Dream Team, a featured speaker on the 2003 Photoshop Fling cruise of the Eastern Caribbean, and a contributing editor for Macworld and Photoshop User magazines. Few now believe there is any hope for him.
