Photoshop is the foundation of every digital career. It is the
most pervasive technology on the market. Many users think they know
it, but in truth they have gaping holes. This book covers what a
professional truly needs to know about Photoshop to be employable.
For students (whether in formal programs, certified training
centers, or self-paced) this book offers a chance to explore the
many aspects of the program interactively. The book cuts
though the clutter and is unique in that it focuses not just on
digital photography, but Internet, graphic design, multimedia, and
Readers will learn the basics in correcting, editing, sharpening, retouching, and presenting photos as well as work on specific projects/exercises, including: digital painting; preparing images for newsprint; designing a CD/DVD label, magazine cover, and advertisements; and building an electronic portfolio.
The full-color book includes a CD-ROM with hand-on exercises and practice images, access to a reader’s only Web site for bonus downloads and files, and access to the popular video tutorial Podcasts (150 at time of publication).
