How to Wow: Photoshop CS3 for Photographers, by Jack Davis
Jack Davis is a Photoshop Hall of Fame member, as well as a part of the "Dream Team" that teaches at Photoshop World conferences. So, not surprisingly, Jack knows his Photoshop stuff. And, more important for anyone planning to buy this book, he knows how to show and tell his readers everything they need to recreate his fine Photoshop techniques.
This is strictly a how-to book (as the title suggests), and is meant to be more of a reference than a cover-to-cover read. The goal of the book is to allow non-experts to make significant improvements in their good-but-not-great images. Some of the areas covered are facial retouching and body sculpting, Bridge and Camera Raw workflow enhancements, black and white conversions and hand tinting and non-destructive workflows.
How to Wow is considered an intermediate-to-advanced Photoshop book, and much of the initial image processing relies heavily on ACR (Adobe Camera Raw). The good news is that, even if you're not proficient in using Raw, HTW provides an excellent introduction and overview of this must-use Photoshop application.
HTW come with a CD that lets readers use Jack's techniques as they follow along with his text. He also offers a Web site where there is additional text-related material (including some Photoshop actions and presets). I recommend How to Wow to anyone who is serious about learning and using Photoshop and who wants to take the time to let Jack guide you through some excellent advanced techniques.

Absolutely great job, Mr Davis! Lot better ideas than from Kelby's books. It's not a book for new guys in Photoshop. You need to be at least familiar with all basic things. Highly recommended for all photographers.

This book is helpful to those who are learning Photoshop CS3 and already have a basic understanding of the program. Someone who is a beginner might have problems because it isn't a step by step, it assumes you know where some things are already.

Format: Paperback
It did not actually evoke many "WOWs!" but it can help jump-start CS3 for you in the beginning. How to Wow PS CS3 can be effective in solving common and not so common problems. It is a supplementary resource, not a main course. Even then, the most stubbornly elusive issue for me with any of such titles is figuring out what is the best match in determining the right book for what is a very diverse readership. By that I mean in regards to both the level required to use the book and the style of teaching used in the book. Moreover, the two are not necessarily found in the same book as in the split between fans of Scott Kelby's baby step by baby step method he effectively used in The Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices That Matter), and those readers who learn from him but do not appreciate the author's sometimes intrusive sense of humor. Like Kelby, Davis tells and shows you how to do things, not why, as you could frankly in any title written by the late Bruce Fraser. To also imply something is easy or simple or right for you in any recommended book is problematic. Davis' book clearly has a different niche from more advanced books like Real World Adobe Photoshop CS3 or the authoritative CMS book Real World Color Management (2nd Edition) or the tutorial books with DVD video like ...Read more ›

Most digital photo coarses are taught by erogant nerds that try to prove how smart they are by teaching in digital language that is hard to follow. This author tlks plain English and gets to the point quickly and understandably. Amazon makes it equaly esay to obtain the material.
