Photoshop CS2 for Photographers - Martin Evening

Just arrived today from a bookclub I am a member of.

I had the CS version and the CS2 version is considerably thicker.

Essential reading if you are an intermediate to advanced Photochopper.
Or you could always just ask CT :lol:

Book here

I'll take that as a huge compliment Bachsy, :lol: Would that it were true though. I do use Photoshop occasionally, but mainly I use Paint Shop Pro as I'm most used to it having used it since the original version, but I'm still finding new ways to do things all the time. The capabilities of these programmes is so immense, and working methods so varied that none of us is likely to bottom out on the possibilities in our lifetime.

I think we all agree with that CT..

I also think the majority of us are only just scratching the surface with them..

I just flitted about the CS version and used it as a reference book,
this time I'm going to read it from cover to cover and work through the tutorials.

I'm gonna crack this nut!

I got the CS2 version of Martin Evening's book a few weeks back, and it's already helped me a few things.

I've also got the Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers which is just as useful.

Both very worthwhile buys for us PS noobs

I was really impressed with the tutorials on masking hair and merging photos with HDR (High Dynamic Range)

I'm sticking religeously to my plan of reading in order from cover to cover.
I've picked up tips that I missed 1st (and 2nd and 3rd) time around!

CT watch out :naughty:

i use the 'photoshop cs2 book for digital photographers' by scott kelby like biggus. its a great book, full of useful tips, how do achieve results, actual settings to try and its pretty funny too. even though its title says 'digital photography' i was amazed to see just how much this book is orientated around a photographer not a designer. was 28 and worth it for sure.
