Photoshop users will love this handy guide that teaches them expert tricks. The book includes hundreds of tips like shrinking file sizes on web graphics, rendering text in just one click, supercharging your filter effects, creating your own custom typeface, instant red-eye removal, creating a metallic look and changing brush softness on the fly. Each trick includes short instructions (about a paragraph in length) and screen shots showing the reader how to create the desired effect. The focus of the book is speed, and the tips selected include methods for increasing productivity by finding shortcuts and avoiding speed traps.
The books authors, Scott Kelby and Felix Nelson, both work for Photoshop User magazines. Felix Nelson is the publication's creative director and Scott Kelby is the Editor-in-Chief. Kelby has also authored several other books on Photoshop, including Photoshop 6 Down and Dirty Tricks and Photoshop 6 Photo-Retouching Secrets. The two combine their expertise to provide valuable insight and easy-to-learn skills that will help anyone learn to quickly create powerful Photoshop graphics and special effects. Pros will also like the book for the time-saving tips. Highly recommended.
