Gorgeous Book, Wonderful Resource For Photoshop Mavens

  • Dec 23, 2009
One of my issues with many of the Photoshop/graphics type books out on the market is that there is too much writing and not enough images in the books that I see. What's that? Too much WRITING in a ahhhemm BOOK? Umm isn't a book SUPPOSED to be about writing? In most books the answer is yes, but for books that deal with pictures and how to make said pictures, I want full-color images of said content, not words about the content. With 'Digital Painting in Photoshop' I get exactly that, with 200+ pages of BEAUTIFUL pictures all throughout. Is there writing? Yes of course there is, but the main content (maybe 70%+) is full-color imagery, not words about what the user should be doing. Strewn over 8 chapters, you will learn how to make images into beautiful works of ART that take regular images to the next level. Digital content is amazingly good nowadays, but the regular old out of the box image isn't always the best approach. This book will teach you how to make images into art.

Ms. Bloom does a wonderful job in this text, and it's very very easy to recommend for any Photoshopper that wants to kick it up a notch... BANG!!!!
