Review

"A true masterpiece." —John Nemerovski, Pixiq.com  

"To me Adobe Photoshop CS6 For Photographers is still just about the most important reference book I have. It covers every aspect of Photoshop in detail and presents them with an eye toward the photographer. It is written by a professional photographer for professional photographers. It covers both the Mac and Windows in a clear and concise manner. For intermediate and advanced Photoshop users, it is the definitive word on Photoshop. For the beginner, along with other sources for additional foundation, it will make you that advanced user. For anyone who is serious about photography and Photoshop,Adobe Photoshop CS6 For Photographers is a must have." —T. Michael Testi, BlogCritics.org

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essential Photoshop Reference June 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
As each new version of Photoshop has been issued, it has become more capable and more complex. Similarly, for each version Martin Evening has issued a new edition of "Adobe Photoshop for Photographers" which is longer and covers the newest tools as well as the older tools. Whichever is the current edition in the series has become the "go-to" reference book next to my computer. The CS5 version is dog-eared and marked up with my hand-written summery index of items I consider especially important on the inside back cover. And given the sparse help provided by Adobe's on-line help facility, a reference book is more important than ever.

The book covers those aspects of Photoshop which will be helpful to photographers rather then graphic designers, including a lengthy discussion of Adobe Camera Raw processing and Bridge. (I would have included a short chapter on text even though that falls into the graphics area but Evening is unforgiving on this.) There is also a supporting web site, which contains not just images and movies, but lengthy PDFs that include subjects not in the book, like output for the web and Lightroom import workflow. Users should look at the website early on because it may contain just the material they are looking for. (For what it's worth, Evening, like many other serious photographers, apparently does much of his initial processing of images in Lightroom rather than Adobe Camera Raw, and uses Lightroom in preference to Bridge for image management.)

The book is so jam-packed with information that it's almost impossible to just read from cover to cover, especially since it is rather boring to read about a feature that one already knows.

Format:Paperback
Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Photographers by: Martin Evening

This reference guide is aesthetically pleasing, well bound, and contains color-coded chapters that makes it a breeze to find the information one needs to complete most any task at hand. Included on every page are color-coded keyboard short cuts for either the Mac or PC user and the content is well placed representing a workflow most any photographer would use to manipulate either a single photo or a whole project.

First you will orient yourself to the anatomy of photoshop learning the what, when, where and why of tools. This is an introduction to the important-to-learn aspect of photoshop "language", yes, photoshop has it's own language as does Science, the Medical field, and as well as many other disciplines used in today's society.

Secondly, Camera Raw takes the reader through a series of features very similar to the workflow one uses in Lightroom, and again as noted in the forefront of the book, the author explains in-depth the tools used in a step-by-step manner to fully process the photographer's images. Did I mention Lightroom? Though the two are very similar, just remember this, Camera Raw is integrated into CS6 thus the combination offers not only more tools but more tools with the capacity to dramatically change and refine image detail. Having worked in a processing lab using a huge Fuji machine with few knobs, dials, and push buttons to tweak images I tend to like the availability of any and all prospects for refining the littlest detail.

Thirdly, Camera Raw concludes with applying Pre-sharpening or capture sharpening images prior to taking them into Photoshop for editing. I can't express enough the importance of sharpening not only once, twice, but thrice!

3.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: BASIC PARTS OMITTED June 22, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've bought the last two versions of this book, because nothing compares with its in-depth treatment of Photoshop for photographers. But I was dismayed when I read Martin's section about "what's different in this book." He tells us that, to make room for new material, he has removed the Color Management and Web Output sections, making them available only as PDF downloads on the book's Web site. Why? Because the material has "barely changed" over the past six editions, and he figures his readers have already bought one or more of his books!

Well, yes, Martin, I did, but I sold them back to Amazon when I bought the newer edition. I do not have unlimited shelf space. And now I very much mind having a crippled version of your book instead of the complete reference I thought I was getting. And, no, it's not good enough to provide it as a PDF. If I wanted my references as PDF, I wouldn't be buying a printed book!

That's not to mention the very questionable strategy of removing info that's essential to new readers. Believe it or not, Martin, not all Photoshop users have been using the program for years and years. And many who have been using it a long time STILL don't know how to handle color management. Go to the Web sites of prominent photographers and you'll see that many of them STILL don't know enough to embed a color profile in their online photos, or are embedding the wrong one! They are in desperate need of the info you didn't think was important enough to include!

Do your readers a favor and retain all ESSENTIAL material in future editions.
