Amazon.com Review

This outstanding, full-color book takes you through compelling computer-graphics projects that have been featured in Step-By-Step Electronic Design, the monthly newsletter for design professionals. In the book, a variety of graphics experts discuss ways to use Adobe Photoshop, MetaCreations (formerly Fractal Design) Painter, Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia FreeHand, RayDream Designer, and other software programs to create interesting artistic and commercial artwork. The contributors discuss real-world projects wherein they solve a particular problem or create a specific effect using the appropriate software. Part of the book focuses on using Photoshop along with Illustrator (and other tools) to create arresting images. The book's projects touch on just about everything--paint tools, light, color, channels, 3-D artwork, Web design, collages, portraits, catalogs, freeform drawing, textures, and much more. The images that the contributors produce are nothing short of fantastic. If you're looking for great ways to improve your own graphics, get this book.

From Library Journal

This collection from Step-by-Step Electronic Design's 20-page monthly newsletter covers techniques and strategies for all sorts of design programs, from Photoshop to Illustrator to Freehand to Painter and more. Complete instructions are given on creating digital beauty. Great for small collections without room for lots of books on each application.

Format: Paperback
This book is for people who know how to use the programs covered (primarily Photoshop) and are familiar with the various tools, layers, paths, filters, channels, etc., as it explains and shows you how professionals achieved their results in areas ranging from imitating paint and canvas to batik to perfecting a pattern to hand-painted effects with channels to painting an intricate pattern to desktop silkscreening to building your own brushes and many more.
I admit I am fairly new to these programs and not yet confident in my understanding and use of their various tools and functions, nonetheless I found this book very helpful in not only taking me beyond the tutorials, but in showing me the vast capabilities of these graphics programs. There are many good techniques shown here that I know will be very useful to me as I become more proficient in the use of these programs.

The title of the book is very misleading. It is not step-by-step, but more like skip a step and try and figure out how we did this. Not that great. Better books out there.
