Barry Huggins' design work and digital imagery has been used by clients
throughout Europe, the USA, and the Far East. In recent years the demand for
intensive professional training led Barry to form his own multimedia training and consultancy company, www.maxitraining.com. The success of his techniques in one-to-one and group training courses have resulted in offers to deliver his ideas and methodology to a wider audience. This is his fifth book on digital imaging and graphics software.
"This is one of those books that has multiple functions. Not only does it become a reference book but, if you're like me, as you read many of the sections you will find yourself inspired to try what you learned on your own photos....Overall this book is packed with practical how to steps and will help you fix, change or create an image from all of your photos."
--Joseph Iagnemmo, Austin Adobe User Group (AAUG)
"Barry Huggins book covers Photoshop CS2 and it is an excellent book in many ways. I especially recommend it for photomanipulators who wonder what CS2 can do for them that Photoshop Elements 3 or 4 cant do. Im not talking about all the things that happen when a professional ships his photo-file to a publisher, I am only concerned about getting some photos fixed, upgraded, or created and delivered to your kids, friends, and neighbors. This book changed the way I think about Photoshop and the way I work with photos."
--James Hodges, Silicon Valley Computer Society

--T. Michael Testi, Blogcritics Magazine
