5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource / reference, July 28, 2004
This review is from: The Adobe Photoshop CS Book for Digital Photographers (Paperback)
I'm a professional digital photographer, and while I'm not a Photoshop guru I have learned my way to good results through endless trial and error. Most digital photography and Photoshop reference books are either too basic or needlessly complicated. Kelby's "...CS Book for Digital Photographers" is neither -- it's exactly the right balance of simplicity while attacking advanced techniques for improving one's digital images.

This title is the one most frequently removed from my shelves and placed beside my computer for reference. When I can't find the book, it's because my husband -- also a professional photographer -- has borrowed it and placed it on HIS computer desk.

Yes, there are a number of techniques presented that are geared to portrait photographers (and advanced users who want to take better family photos). However, as outdoor photographers (wildlife, landscapes and natural light portraits), my husband and I still get good mileage from this book. In particular, his experimentation and documentation with various "Unsharp Mask" values is universally useful, as are the tips on color cast removal/color correction and Photoshop workspace optimization/personalization.
