This is about the fifth book on using Photoshop that I have ordered in the past year, and I think it is the best by far.

This book is absolutely awesome. It's so well organized and the screenshots make it very easy to follow along. It walks you through a total end to end workflow in photoshop and lightroom (which I love) from understanding exposure, setting up the workspace in photoshop, b/w conversion steps and even printing! It's also filled with beautiful, inspiring images. Once you understand the basic concepts, you can be so much more creative with your photos...it's helped me turn ordinary images into something classic (everything looks better in black and white!). I seriously recommend this book for anyone trying to gain a comprehensive understanding of how to create stunning black and white images. Kudos to the authors for demystifying the process.

This book is easy reading and well designed. I have used techniques as written and gotten excellent results. It is one of the best, if not the best, book on digital B&W conversion.

This is about the fifth book on using Photoshop that I have ordered in the past year, and I think it is the best by far. This book is about black and white photography, but the authors do such a great job on explaining how digital photography works that I believe any serious photographer would benefit from reading this great book.

Format: Paperback
For some time my ability with digital to black and white has been suffering. I had seen many examples of black and white digital shots that wowed me and this made me yearn to expand my abilities with black and white conversion.

This was the book I chose. I usually go down to Borders and browse the many titles. Later I will think about the books and most often come shopping on Amazon to make my final purchase to save money.

This time was different. I spent about 15 minutes looking at this book and a few others and I knew I wanted it enough to where I put down the extra 12 buck and walked out of the store.

I was not and have not been disappointed. My black and white pictures were immediately improved. And although I originally bought this to use with Photoshop I was pleasantly surprised as how well it works with Lightroom as well.

It is laid out an sections that work together and separately and there are many examples on varying manners in which to achieve different results.

I am a professional color-film photographer with so much tendency to stay in classic era! However, like other film-photographers, I am gradually shifting from film to digital. Therefore, I ordered dozens of books from Amazon.com, some of them from famous authors like Mr.S. Kelby. But, I returned the books after the first look. Why? Because photography is not mere technique, it is understanding the mood of light and grasping the moment by recording that using a camera and finally printing your image on a piece of paper. This is what all this book is about.
The significant difference between this book and other Photoshop books in the market is this book explains the "software" in a "photo" perspective, not the photo in a software perspective. I mean you, as a photographer, can use any software to improve a picture quality but, you don't use a photo to improve your software techniques!
The comprehensive explanation on the exposure and zone system and how each zone impacts a picture is fascinating (ch.2). The conversion of color images to B&W, scanning techniques, color adjustment, and relation between image size and print are prepared very carefully (ch.2,7,8). The other very positive aspect of this book is the lack of redundancy (believe it or not) (all chapters). By purchasing this book, with the least time, you can get into the core of the topic and the technique you are looking for. Especially, the high quality pictures throughout the book are very informative to understand what the topic is all about.
I believe this is a real reference B&W / color photography book. I highly recommend it.

N.B. My website is under construction however, you can see some of my pictures on [...].

I am very interested in using Photoshop for creating Black and White images for digital printing.
The source of the images are from a digital camera as well as large format negatives which have been carefully scanned

I am familiar with traditional darkroom techniques but needed information on using Photoshop to produce effects like dodging, burning, contrast adjustment, filtering, large sky burns or edge burns etc.
I also hoped to become more familiar with non destructive PS techniques such as layers masking and selections

Every book I purchased (and there are far to many) provided information not related to my interest despite the titles.

The authors of Black and White in Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom go directly to the heart of the matter as defined in the title. The book proved useful immediately.
There is a step by step approach which is never boring and always instructive

The critical areas of scanning, capture and adjustments from color to B&W are brilliantly covered

I recommend this book to anyone who is captivated by the Title
The book will not disappoint

I received this book from Amazon today. On the back of the book it is stated: Level: beginner/intermediate. I was not aware of this when I ordered it, as I was looking for an advanced book on black and white processing. Looking through the book, it looks to be a fine book for the beginning photographer. It's just not at the advanced level that I was searching for.
