5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely NOT Disappointing September 30, 2003
Format:Paperback
I feel this book runs circles around any Scott Kelby book. For starters you get detail information for a wide range of photographs. Eismann writes what were the trouble spots on the pictures and what approach she took to fix them. She utilizes many different approaches to accomplish the same task. This is essential for anyone who wants to learn photo-retouching inside out and not just click on Image > Adjust > Auto Color.
The writer doesn't give numbers for Unsharp Mask which I don't feel is a major issue. The only people who would be disturbed by this are those that want a quick fix and no theory. Basically, your typical "Hi, I am a self-taught graphic designer. What is CMYK and RGB?".
The web site for the book has jpeg files of the photos used in the book. The photos in the book are printed well. I remember buying Scott Kelby's Photoshop Photo-Retouching Secrets and the pictures in the book were printed poorly and there wasn't a companion website to download the photos.
Katrin Eismann has a great book that is well-rounded for beginners to professionals to wanna-be professionals. As for Scott Kelby, don't get me wrong he does know his stuff. It's just that lately he pumps books out quickier than Adobe pumps upgrades out on the shelves. And usually it's 10% new stuff.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Katrin Eismann's new Photoshop book is the updated version of her very successful restoration/retouching Bible. She is a brilliant teacher who uses her vast knowledge and precise communication skills to demonstrate sophisticated techniques at workshops throughout the world.
In this book Katrin provides a carefully crafted manual for repairing and enhancing photographs using Photoshop 7, Adobe's latest update of its challenging image software program.
This second edition offers step-by-step demonstrations describing how to approach the most common problems one encounters when working with faded, damaged photographs. Among the many subjects covered are: color, contrast, tone, exposure correction, mold damage, stains, cracks, red eye, torn edges, working by the numbers, replacing missing information and removing dust and scratches.
Katrin's approach to portrait retouching emphasizes the subtle touch. In her extensive chapter on developing a portrait retouch strategy, she thoughtfully discusses and demonstrates the steps for removing blemishes, reducing wrinkles, and improving eyes, lips and hair.
A comprehensive website supplements the book. Readers can download most of the photographs, making it easy to practice using techniques on the same images found throughout the book.
This great book by the "Photoshop Diva" will teach you more about Photoshop than you can possibly imagine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improving Digital Images February 11, 2004
By Frank D
Format:Paperback
A significant difference between film and digital photography is the Desktop Digital Darkroom, DDD (my own term), the ability to edit digital images in ways well beyond that possible with film and its chemicals. And compared to film photography, DDD is neater, easier to use, reversible and does not require all the special equipment, once one has the computer of course. The images can be from digital cameras, converted film pics or scans. This book discusses modifying them using the Adobe Photoshop 6.0 program.
It actually is applicable to more than Restoration & Retouching. The information on image editing is useful for anyone working with digital images. And while it is based on use of Photoshop many of the tools are available in the lower priced Adobe Elements 2 and the approaches and concepts can be used with other image-editing programs as well.
Up front the author states that this is not a book for beginners. It assumes basic familiarity with Photoshop and the time available to learn, practice and use the techniques presented. It is targeted at professionals who use digital editing extensively. Well, I am no pro but I do take digital photos - generally quick pics at family gatherings. Rarely are my subjects posed - I take what and when I can. DDD lets me improve the photos by cropping, improving exposure, eliminating unwanted objects and such. I found this book informative and useful - even if many of the techniques are more than I want to do - now. Perhaps I'll grow into them too, now that I know what and how to do to improve my photos.
The book is a 10" x 8" glossy paperback. It has 276 pages for ten chapters and an Appendix. I found the type smaller and lighter than in other books, giving me some trouble in reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black & White photographers take note! October 6, 2003
Format:Paperback
At last, at last, someone writing a Photoshop book cares about the black & white photographer! Photoshop dosen't automatically mean color images, but most guides don't recognize that. Katrin Eismann takes you through every step of the workflow to correct, ajust, and enhance your black & white images. There is also information on various ways of adding tone or color, if that is your interest.You can't find this anywhere else, and each step is explained with great clarity and good illustrations. I am equally admiring of the chapters on color. This book is my Bible, and I pattern my workflow just as she suggests.
I would also like to mention another unique feature of Eismann's book. Many of us are out there trying to make great art that will change the world, and feeling the accompanying stress. Eismann tells you to have fun with Photoshop! It dosen't have to be high serious. You can work on your favorite snapshots of your kids, or unearth old family photos, and really make something beautiful and wonderful with them - and she will show you how. I found this very liberating, and it made me like the book even more.
