Scott Kelby, Editor and Publisher of Photoshop User magazineâ€“and the best-selling photography book author in the world todayâ€“once again takes this book to a whole new level as he uncovers more of the latest, most important, and most useful Adobe Photoshop techniques for digital photographers. This update to his award-winning, record-breaking book does something for digital photographers thatâ€™s never been done beforeâ€“it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly â€śhow to do it.â€ť Itâ€™s not a bunch of theory; it doesnâ€™t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure it out on your own. Instead, Scott shows you step by step the exact techniques used by todayâ€™s cutting-edge digital photographers, and best of all, he shows you flat-out exactly which settings to use, when to use them, and why. Thatâ€™s why the previous editions of this book are widely used as the official study guide in photography courses at colleges and universities around the world. LEARN HOW THE PROS DO ITEach year, Scott trains thousands of professional photographers on how to use Photoshop, and almost without exception they have the same questions, the same problems, and the same challengesâ€“and thatâ€™s exactly what he covers in this book. Youâ€™ll learn: The sharpening techniques the pros really use. The prosâ€™ tricks for fixing the most common digital photo problems fast! The step-by-step setup for getting what comes out of your printer to match exactly what you see onscreen. How to process HDR (High Dynamic Range) images using Merge to HDR Pro. How to master Photoshopâ€™s Content-Aware features. How to use Photoshopâ€™s video editing features to make movies from your DSLR videos. How to process RAW images like a pro (plus how to take advantage of all the new Camera Raw features in CS6 and Creative Cloud!). The latest Photoshop special effects for photographers (thereâ€™s a whole chapter just on these!). A host of shortcuts, workarounds, and slick â€śinsiderâ€ť tricks to send your productivity through the roof!
