Media praise for Photoshop Photo Effects Cookbook

"If your experience thus far with digital image manipulation consists of simple tonal adjustments and color corrections, you will be amazed with what more can be done. If you are a more advanced user, you will find the "Cookbook" an invaluable resource you can return to again and again...If you consider Photoshop to be your "kitchen" and follow the recipes provided in "Cookbook" (or your own adaptations of these recipes) you are all set to become a Master Chef in the graphics area."
-- Sam Gardner, Polk Computer Users Group

"This is a book I could grasp, because it is based upon pictures showing what effects you can accomplish with Photohshop, and then provides detailed step-by-step instructions telling you to make a new layer, choose a new brush, set brush options, and so forth. Most of the recipes in this book are 15 steps or less...the bottom line is that I now can flip through this book, and if I have a photo that just needs something to punch it up, I have 61 recipes to choose from and some succinct tutorials to help me waddle through what I'm trying to do."
-- Bill Davies, MacNexus, Sacramento Mac User Group

"This book has 61 easy-to-follow recipes for designers and artists. First of all, the cover is so well done it makes you want to get into the book right away...there is something for everyone in this book."
-- Clara Harold, eJournal of the Tucson Computer Society

"Getting a copy of this book is as much fun as eating candy. You might even want to print some of your results out and frame them."
-- Linda Cameron, Mid-Columbia Macintosh User Group
