Production professionals who use Photoshop every day are familiar with the product's incredible richness but typically could use extra advice on getting the product to do exactly what they want. If you're a prepress or photography professional needing hands-on advice on using Photoshop's color correction features and image input and output processes, look no further than Real World Photoshop 4. The writers start off by explaining the basics of setting up a Photoshop system, addressing both Windows and Macintosh platforms. Then they teach you the essentials of Photoshop's interface and discuss essential image-editing features and issues such as color settings, color separations, resolution, and image modes. Next, you learn the techniques of using Photoshop's tonal and color correction features, adjustment layers, and image-sharpening tools. You also learn how to enhance duotones and line art and how to work with scanners and run optimal image scans. The book teaches you about using Photoshop's selection tools, such as masks, paths, and alpha channels, and about retouching images, building shadows to use in PageMaker or Quark XPress, creating silhouettes, and using Color Management Systems. Finally, you get advice on storing your images in a variety of formats, from the native Photoshop format to .GIF and .JPG, and on compressing images and outputting images to the Web. Several full-color images illustrate various color-management and image-editing issues discussed in the book.
