: Heres one of those books that makes you realise theres always more to Photoshop than you think. Based around the popular area of retouching photographs, the author, an Alpha tester for Photoshop and well-respected US lecturer, takes you way beyond the basics of using a selection tool and clone tool. You will learn how to make advanced corrections using alpha channels, masks and adjustment layers. Its the most in-depth and knowledgeable book Ive seen on the subject, yet its still easy to follow so even inexperienced Photoshop users will be able to grasp the techniques.
The pictures are not the most exciting, but the step-by-step screengrabs are thorough and at least you can follow with your own examples. Its costly, but well worth the price and it gets a resounding thumbs up on this one!
