The author introduces various tricks into tutorials as they become useful, e. Use the levels dialog and pull the White Point slider to the left. I really like the landscape format of the book.

I would also have preferred if the example images were available from one place, although this is a minor point. But then again, those effects are obviously very popular … and the Distressed Text effect actually looked rather classy.
One thing that bugs me, that I often see in tutorial-type books, is the assumption that the user is a hobbyist, e. For photography, the main alternative book would be GIMP 2.
The Artist's Guide to GIMP, 2nd Edition
Du kommenterer no med WordPress. The GIMP , in case you're not aware, is a popular open-source image editor, pretty comparable to Photoshop in terms of features.
I've been a relatively frequent user of the GIMP for some years now, often using it to touch up and edit photos a couple of friends and I have a habit of photoshopping one another into unlikely situations; as one does. It's a godsend in situations when I have to quickly edit graphs for publication or retouch screenshots too. But, while I'm hardly a stranger to the software, I can't really say that I'm an expert in any sense.
Still, it's fully-featured, pretty easy to use once you've gained a little familiarity with it, and has the definite advantage of being free and cross-platform.
The book covers "creative techniques for photographers, artists, and designers", with a definite slant towards designers of the web variety, I would say. It starts off with a solid page section on using the basic set of tools available in the GIMP, such as paintbrushes, drawing tools, selection masks and layers. For anyone who's used Photoshop or a comparable editor, this is the very necessary bread and butter stuff, explained at an "overview" level.
The subtleties of the various tools are developed later on in the book, scattered about the numerous example projects that make up the bulk of the guide. And boy, are they numerous.
The Artist’s Guide to GIMP, Second Edition (Book Review)
There's a shade over pages worth of projects, most of them taking up about 4 pages each. The projects are very tightly written, with the minimum of chatter - just no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point instructions, prefixed by a bit of background and motivation for each of them, and a handy example of the end result you can expect for a given technique. Each project has a number of useful screenshots of intermediate steps so the reader can make sure that their results and on-screen tool set-up are tracking what the instructions say, which makes it particularly easy to follow along.
