We all want to create better images. There is no question that knowing how to properly use Photoshop can take our images to the next level. The problem is that learning Photoshop can be a difficult and intensive process, and finding a comprehensive source of information for using Photoshop can be challenging. Piecing together bits of knowledge from hundreds of sources can be frustrating, and often leads to bad technique and poor workflow habits.
As a photographer and retouching artist, I have spent years learning correct techniques and how to properly use the various elements of Photoshop, such as layers, selections, masks, channels, tools, filters, and more. I have developed a strong set of workflows for everything from my commercial work, retouching portraiture and wedding photography, to my personal landscape and travel photography work.
I have spent the past 2 years putting everything I have learned into these pages. From the most fundamental aspects of Photoshop to advanced techniques and workflows, this book covers it all.
