Adobe Photoshop CS4Book - 2009
A guide to using Adobe Photoshop CS4 covers such topics as working with panels, creating a new document, managing layers, editing images, correction color and lighting, drawing with vector tools, and using filters.
Focusing on creative effects with Photoshop rather than on photo editing, this book for all levels, especially beginners, offers step-by-step instructions, color examples, and screenshots showing how to use all of the tools and techniques in the latest release of Adobe Photoshop to create images for print, the web, and animation. For those new to Photoshop, the book begins by explaining what Photoshop is and what it does, and exploring the user interface. Coverage then progresses from document and layer basics to using Photoshop for web graphics, 3D, mobile phones, and video. A final chapter gives advice on training and options for making a living with Photoshop. Perkins, an Adobe Certified Instructor, has written other books on Adobe.
