Photoshop 7 Wow! Book

Photoshop Wow 4 was my first experience of Jack Davis' work. He's a designer and this is clear when you see the innovative layout, and amount of design style tricks that are explained in the book. Youll learn how to bevel and shape graphics like no other book has demonstrated. Print quality is good and picture illustrations are excellent. Version 7.0 incorporates all the news features added since 6.0 but most of the book's illustrations the same as the earlier version and there's still that same...

Hidden Power of Photoshop Elements 2

Elements is the program bought by newcomers to digital manipulation and the book it comes with is fine for those, but there's also a large group of photographers who can't justify the cost of Photoshop and buy Elements as the low cost alternative. This book will satisfy their needs but also anyone else with a thirst for knowledge. It goes way beyond the normal greeting card, red eye removal, and simple colour correction techniques and has some excellent descriptions of image problems with remedi...

Photoshop 7 at Your Fingertips

A logically laid out book that takes you beyond the Adobe instruction manual, explaining every tool bar and palette in great detail. Being black and white throughout with just a small colour section means it lacks visual appeal but the navigation is good and the side panel tips quick to find. Not the first book I'd recommend for the knowledge thirsty Photoshop user, but a good alternative to the Adobe guide.

How to Photograph Cars

Written by an expert car photographer and published by the company famous for their how-to mechanics series indicates we are on to a winner with this book. Tony takes us through the various skill levels from choosing the right film, using the right lens, using filters, then into techniques such as panning and tracking, plus how to shoot a car cornering. He explains all about exposure, time of day, location and much more. There's even a few tips on digital manipulation. Overall a very thorough an...

How to Do Everything with Your Digital Camera 2nd Edition

Five sections, 16 chapters and over 400 pages are provided to help you understand digital cameras and make the most of their features. It explains how you compose photos, use flash, understand exposure, take close ups and much more. Then it leads on to how to get the photos into your PC and edit them. Being in black & white it's not the most inspiring looking book but the info is worthy of a look.

Photographing babies & toddlers

From the writer of many highly successful photographic books comes this one focused on the world of the young child. In his usual style the book has well presented pictures and clearly written captions to help those who want to learn and don't want to trawl through loads of waffle. It takes you through the early stages from birth to crawling and walking with info on how to prop up the tiny ones who can't sit to making the ones who can frown smile. If you have a child on the way or someone has as...

Complete Reference Photoshop Elements 2

Like the Complete Photoshop book this is a heavy 768 page reference guide, showing that A) it's potentially going to be thorough and b) Elements is actually one heluva program if it needs a book this thick to cover it. To help you wade through the book it's split into five sections each with loads of sub headings. The sections are: Part I: Photoshop Elements Orientation Part II: Managing the Digital Darkroom Workflow Part III: Adding Special Effects to Your Images Part IV: Preparing Your Pho...

Complete Reference Photoshop 7

Untitled Document A typical computer style manual that's 730+ pages make it heavy to hold and there's a complete absence of colour. The information however is thorough with the following covered: Part I: Getting to Know Photoshop 1: Getting to Know Photoshop: What It Does Best and What's New in Photoshop 7 2: Understanding the Photoshop Interface 3: Customizing Photoshop's Preferences 4: Importing Existing Images Part II: Editing and Retouching Images ...

Teach Yourself Digital Photography

Written by the editor of ePHOTOzine. Has all the essential info in a very easy to digest format, but (apart from a colour section)photographs are reproduced in low quality black and white. Luckily the low price tag reflects this.
