The unsurpassed image-manipulation capabilities of Adobe Photoshop make it the professional's choice for prepping digital photographs. The problem is, most books on Photoshop devote so much space to telling you how to achieve spectacular special effects that they shortchange you on the details of basic image enhancementæcolor correction, conversions, composites, and all the other fundamental techniques you need to make images ready for press.

Written especially for desktop and graphics professionals, Professional Photoshop shows how to get the most out of an image, even one that at first seems unacceptable. Beginning with a concise review of color theory, it provides guidelines on how to analyze a picture before scanning and color correction, and explains in exhaustive detail Photoshop's single most powerful toolæthe input-output curves. Here, at last, is a book that:

  • Covers color correction extensively, including how to create lifelike skin tones, how to correct for color casts, how to guarantee that the full tonal range is used, the problem of neutral colors, and how to sacrifice one part of the image to improve another
  • Reveals how professionals use the tools you would least expect to create contrast and sharpness, with complete coverage of the role of black ink and of "unwanted color"
  • Describes advanced cut-and-paste techniques, how to convert color images into snappy black and whites, and the best way to create convincing duotones
