How to Cheat in Photoshop CS3 – Reader Review

How-To-Cheat-Photoshop-Cs3This review of How to Cheat in Photoshop CS3 was submitted by DPS reader Brian Harvey. Thanks Brian!

Last week I purchased How to cheat in Photoshop CS3 by Steve Caplin and wanted to let other DPS readers know just how helpful it is as a resource.

This book (and DVD) is one of the best purchases that I’ve made for a while and has taught me so much already. Here are a few of the highlights and reasons that I’m glad I bought it:

It is full of information – this is not a light book (it is in it’s 4th edition) – there’s no ‘fluff’ here. It’s just over 400 pages of genuine learning. Add to that the DVD which contains movies that show you many of the techniques outlined in the book and you’ve got a book with great theory but also lots of practical examples (I need the practical – I’m more of a visual learner).

Useful Techniques – what I like about the topics covered is that they cover real stuff that you will want to know how to do in your day to day photography post production. A lot of these photoshop tutorial resources get a little too technical and cover ‘cool’ stuff that I’d never use – this book is much better. Sure it does cover some bizarre topics (like how to make a stature more human like) but the basic stuff we all need to know is there. There are so many little shortcuts and tips along the way that I’ll use forever.
