LEARN HOW THE PROS DO IT
The photographer’s workflow in Photoshop has evolved tremendously over time, and in this current version of the book you’ll end up doing much of your processing and editing in Photoshop’s Adobe Camera Raw feature (whether you’re shooting in RAW, JPEG, or TIFF. , works for all three). This is because, for years now, Adobe has been adding most of the new Photoshop features for photography directly into Camera Raw.

• The most useful retouching techniques for photographers and how to make “impossible” selections like hair blowing in the wind (it’s easy, once you know the secrets) and how to layer like a pro.
• How to smoothly remove distracting garbage from your images.
• How to stitch panoramas together, how to render HDR for a realistic look, and tips for getting more out of your images than you ever dreamed of.
• The latest Photoshop special effects for photographers (there’s a whole chapter just about these!).
• A host of nifty “insider” shortcuts, solutions, and tricks to send your productivity through the roof!
Scott includes a special chapter with its own workflow, from start to finish, plus each chapter ends with a Killer Photoshop Tips section, packed with time and labor saving tips that make a difference. He also provides four additional chapters, along with the images used in the book for download for you to follow.
