5.0 out of 5 stars Techniques known to Man...or Woman!, September 22, 2012
Converting an image from color to black and white is a lot more complicated than just clicking on the Black and White menu item in Photoshop, or zeroing out the saturation. Versace knows that, and shows you all the things you really need to consider in making a black and white conversion that looks like your original image (only in monochrome), or something else entirely. Anyone who prizes black and white photography and has made the transition from Tri-X to digital needs to have this book in their library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference., July 4, 2012
There aren't really too many Photoshop books written by professional photographers of Evening's stature, although plenty of the popular guides were written by graphics gurus who later got more heavily into photography. That's why this book is so useful for anyone who is a serious photographer. It shows you how to use Photoshop from the shooter's point of view, with emphasis on improving your images, rather than just correcting the mistakes the inept should have fixed in the camera. Highly recommended.
