Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Photographers

Adobe Photoshop CS2[TM] for Photographers Martin Evening Focal Press; Soft cover, 7 1/4" x 9 1/2" 675 pages, illus. in color $44.95 Free CD ROM Note: This is available from PSA Headquarters ISBN 0-240-51984-1

My all time favorite books on Photoshop are those by Martin Evening. I have been using his books as textbooks in the Photoshop classes for the last couple of years. The reason is that the Adobe Photoshop for Photographers series is for photographers and not graphic artists as are a lot of the other books. It is written for photographers by a photographer! Martin shares his expert knowledge to help you combine photography and Photoshop to develop memorable images.

According to the publisher, Martin Evening is a professional photographer who has been working with digital images and Photoshop for many years. He works mainly in studio-based beauty photography for public relations and direct clients. The use of the computer has played a significant role in Martin's work, with nearly everything being retouched or manipulated in Photoshop. This is a regular everyday experience and one which has enabled him to gain an extensive, specialist knowledge of Photoshop.

Martin is an alpha and beta tester for Adobe Photoshop and regularly presents seminars on Photoshop techniques in both the UK and USA. He lives and works in North London, UK.

He provides invaluable information on Bridge, the new file browser that is set to become a very useful image management tool for photographers. Other new developments covered include the new Digital Negative (DNG) file format, improvements in Camera Raw file processing, and High Dynamic Range imaging. Additionally he covers the work space, configuring Photoshop, basic image adjustments, color correction, repairing and retouching, montage techniques, darkroom effects, layer effects, Photoshop filters, digital capture, resolution, color management, output for print and the web, image management, and automating Photoshop.

I always look forward to Martin's books when a new version of Photoshop is introduced, and I wasn't disappointed this time. One of the fun things about digital photography is that you're always learning, and there is no doubt Martin helps me do that.

Remember Adobe's Photoshop CS2 for Photographers can be purchased from PSA Headquarters.
