|Photoshop Down and Dirty Tricks
by Scott Kelby
It's all tricks! The whole book is just packed wall to wall, page after page with the coolest Photoshop special effects. No boring chapters on masking, no explanations of what a pixel is, no discussions of file formats or resolution, just the cool stuff that will make your client's (or bosses) jaw drop. It's all the funk and not the junk!
Plus, there's a tip on every page. There's a sidebar beside every technique on every page with a timesaving tip, trick, technique, shortcut, or real world technique to save you time, money, and make your more efficient. In fact, there's enough tips in this book that it would make a great tips book even without all the special effects!
The whole book is in color, with nearly 800 full color images so you can see every trick, step-by-step, throughout the entire book.
Best of all, the whole book is written in plain English, and you can jump in anywhere; simply open the book to the effect you want to create and follow along. It's that easy (and that much fun!).
