The definitive Photoshop guide for professional and advanced-intermediate photographers who crave deeper knowledge and understanding
Scott Valentine has thoroughly revamped this guide to focus entirely on photography and deepen its coverage of Photoshop’s core tools. This edition contains 50% new content: new procedures, projects, examples, and insights. Now part of the Adobe Master Class series, it is intended for professionals and learners with at least intermediate-level skills, not “beginner/intermediate” as previous editions were designated.
Adobe Master Class: The Hidden Powers of Photoshop for Photographers is about mastering your tools as a path towards mastering your art. Renowned Photoshop teacher Scott Valentine combines expert recipes and instructions with insightful technical and philosophical discussions that help you experiment and expand your knowledge, so you’re no longer dependent on specific settings or cookbook-style presentations.
Now revamped to focus specifically on digital photography, this edition contains dozens of hands-on examples and projects designed to give you an edge in technical, personal, and commercial projects. You’ll find power tips from some of the industry’s most respected experts, including Katrin Eismann, Matt Kloskowski, and RC Concepcion — as well as indispensable advanced techniques for image enhancement and correction.
Valentine offers expert insights and approaches for using blending modes and adjustment layers, and using special effects, compositing, and illustration techniques more creatively. If you crave deeper understanding, greater flexibility, and more effective workflows — and you don’t just want to simulate someone else’s work — this is the Photoshop guide you’ve been searching for.
