With a mantra like "There are no bad originals, only bad Photoshop
operators," you know best-selling author Dan Margulis is serious
about exposing people to the magic of Photoshop. Nowhere is that
magic more apparent than in its LAB color processing capabilities,
which can make even the subtle canyon colors of rock, sand, and
dirt come to vivid life. However, you may be wary of taming the
complex beast. Here's your guide! In these pages, Dan shows that
you can derive enormous benefits from just a few simple tools and
techniques. He also demonstrates that you can take these techniques
as far as you wish, employing the power-user features he describes
in later chapters. Starting with canyons and progressing to faces,
you will see just how quickly you can begin improving your images
by following the "recipes" included here. Each chapter includes a
sidebar with review questions and exercises as well as a "Closer
Look" section that examines some of the principles behind the
techniques. A CD includes exercise files.
Dan Margulis is known as "the experts' expert on the logical and effective ways to make any image look its best" (Design Tools Monthly) and "the father of digital prepress" (Scott Kelby). In 2001, he was one of the first three individuals--and the only writer--to be named as a member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame. In announcing this election, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals said, "Dan's ability to reduce complicated concepts to words that users can understand and his insistence on dealing with real-world relevance have made him today's most influential voice in color reproduction."
