LEARN HOW THE PROS DO IT Each year Scott trains thousands of professional photographers how to use Photoshop, and almost without exception they have the same questions, the same problems, and the same challenges–and that’s exactly what he covers in this book. You’ll learn: • The sharpening techniques the pros really use. • The pros’ tricks for fixing the most common digital photo problems fast! • The step-by-step setup for getting what comes out of your printer to match exactly what you see onscreen. • A whole chapter on how to process HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. • How to master new CS4 interface and workflow features. • How to color correct any photo without breaking a sweat. • How to process RAW digital camera images (plus how to take advantage of all the new Camera Raw features in CS4!). • How to add real automation to your work. • How to show your work like a pro! • A host of shortcuts, workarounds, and slick “insider” tricks to send your productivity through the roof! Plus, Scott included a special bonus chapter with his own CS4 workflow, from start to finish.
