This is the second book in this series, written to help develop essential skills in using Adobe Photoshop. This book is for people who have an understanding of Photoshop’s basic functions and would like to build on that knowledge. We will build on the basic skills covered in the previous book and we will also be taking a look at several new tools, adjustments, editing methodology and workflow options. We will also cover two ancillary programs that ship as part of the Photoshop package – Adobe Bridge and Adobe Camera Raw. Photoshop is a large and complex program, and as such, requires practice and patience to develop the skills required to be an effective user. I encourage you to use these three books as a starting point and go on to develop your own workflows and techniques.
