50 Fast Digital Photo Techniques

If you have an interest in digital photography, or even digital imaging in general, this step-by-step guide to techniques for enhancing, manipulating, colouring and more is destined to stay firmly by your PC.

Written by a photographer with over 25 years experience, this book was conceived in response to the lack of hands-on material in the market, and with its well thought-out content and design is truly intended to assist its readers. The author is aware that most digital photography technique books read like user manuals for the software they spruik - without giving any real tips to their audience. Even though the guide is designed to show users how to recreate the effects using Photoshop Elements, the author ensures that, despite the assistance given by Adobe staff, the title is relevant for other image editing packages as well, and certainly isn't designed as a Photoshop Elements hard sell.

Thirty-day trial versions of Photoshop Elements, along with Jasc Paint Shop Pro and Ulead PhotoImpact, are included on the accompanying CD-ROM. As you would expect, all 50 techniques can "be completed using Photoshop Elements, and almost all of the other competitive editors can complete the techniques as "well.

This book is very clear and concise, and while the bulk of its contents is the essential tip guide, the thoroughly written introduction is well worth a read before commencing the chapters. Why? The introduction is a true introduction, in which the author covers essential topics and background areas, with well worded advice on key digital imaging areas such as why some techniques won't work, the importance of colour management, preserving your original images and more.

Well written and researched, this book will turn any digital imaging novice into a competent imaging manipulator in no time at all!

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
