More About the Author

Since 1991, Gary David Bouton has authored 25 books covering different topics, but they all revolve around a central theme: how does today's individual express themself artistically? The author has been illustrating professionally for over 30 years, and Mr. Bouton makes a point to share with readers not simply what a graphics application's tools do, but how they can be used to produce whatever is on the reader's mind.

Gary has written the Inside Adobe Photoshop series, several CorelDraw manuals including The Official Guide, books on video editing, 3D modeling, and creating Web content. Most recently, Gary has finished co-authoring Photoshop CS4 QuickSteps, and the Xara Xtreme Official Guide, due out this fall from McGraw-Hill.

In the spare time he doesn't have, Gary enjoys composing music and is an active practitioner of what he teaches through his books. Currently, the author works with video producers creating CGI and other post effects for music videos.

The author and his wife Barbara host, home of The Pixel Dust Forum, which supports diverse and lively discussions on everything (but mainly computer graphics). The Boutons also support their books at their website.

Format: Paperback
For someone who comes from a background in television commercials, Gary's book has proven to be nothing short of an elemental guide to performing many of the tasks we'd commission a film editor to do, all digitally, and all within the program we've used for print ads! "Retouching Motion Pictures" demonstrated to me the how-tos I needed to learn to get both analog and digital footage into my computer, how to trim out-takes, to smooth out the pacing and timing of cuts, and even how to perform compositing work. It's a highly technical book that manages to stay focused on what makes motion pictures so captivating--it's all about editing to better tell a story.

Gary's tone is one of confidence in his craft with a generous open spirit, sitting right beside you, talking to you like an adult, and his analogies truly helped me understand and tie together all the disparate issues surrounding digital video. I originally bought his book to learn how to archive and restore home movies, but after the first 100 pages, this guy had me hooked on more ambitious things such as green-screening and special effects you evidently can create using Photoshop on a personal computer. The experience (yes, it's a total immersion head trip following the tutorials) has left me with the conviction that Madison Avenue and Hollywood are just locations; you can produce slick, professional, finished work right in your den!

If you're more of a content creator than a spectator, get this book, get out a lot of sticky notes, and completely rock with this key to unlocking the video potential in Photoshop.

Je trouve ce très regrettable d'avoir acheter ce livre!
Je ne comprends pas assez l'anglais mais je me débrouille bien
En techniques photo... mais sur le site il n'explique pas en détalle
Donc le livre mais d'aucune utilité.
Les livres qu'il vende. Mais le service est bon.
