This thorough, self-paced guide to Adobe Photoshop CS2written by the experts at Adobe Systems is ideal for beginning users who want to learn key Photoshop concepts and techniques, while readers who already have some experience with Photoshop can use this book to learn Photoshop CS2's more advanced features and newest tools. Using clear, step-by-step, project-based lessons, each chapter walks readers through the creation of a specific project, with each chapter building on the reader's growing knowledge of the program, while review questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the skills learned in each lesson. Photoshop CS2, long the industry standard for digital imaging software, offers plenty of new features and enhancements for creative professionals and digital photographers alike. Users can access the AdobeBridge file browser to locate, organize, and manage all their images; remove flaws with one click with the Spot Healing Brush; turn flat images into shaped graphics with Image Warp; and clone and paint images with the groundbreaking new Vanishing Point tool. And digital photographers will be pleased to know that they can now process multiple Camera Raw images in a fraction of the time it used to take.
