Product Description
Scott Kelby, the best-selling Photoshop author in the world today, once again takes this book to a whole new level as he uncovers the latest, most important, and most exciting new Adobe Photoshop CS4 techniques for digital photographers. This major update to his award-winning, record-breaking book does something for digital photographers that’s never been done before—it cuts through the bull and shows you exactly “how to do it.” It’s not a bunch of theory; it doesn’t challenge you to come up with your own settings or figure it out on your own. Instead, Scott shows you step-by-step the exact techniques used by today’s cutting-edge digital photographers, and best of all, he shows you flat-out exactly which settings to use, when to use them, and why. That’s why the previous editions of this book are widely used as the official study guide in photography courses at colleges and universities around the world.

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. If you’re a digital photographer, and you’re ready to learn the “tricks of the trade”—the same ones that today’s leading pros use to correct, edit, sharpen, retouch, and present their work—then you’re holding the book that will do just that.

The Adobe Photoshop CS4 Book for Digital Photographers

    I received this book in a timely fashion, the content is excellent.. except, I’m missing pages 96 – 129. This would get a 5 star review otherwise…

    I am so disappointed in this Scott Kelby book I just purchased. His Photoshop Elements 5.0 book was amazing. He went into great detail of how to perform all the major digital retouching tasks on portraits and other images. There were step by step instructions on how to execute them in PS Element 5.0. I thought he would basically update that book to do the same things in CS4. He didn’t. There were great retouching concepts and procedures that he does not even cover in the new book. This was such a disappointment especially because the user interfaces are not the same in the two versions of Photoshop so the techniques don’t translate. I have CS4 and can’t do half the things I could do in Elements 5.0. And not I am out $34 because Scott’s book was useless. I am a part time professional photographer shooting with a Canon 20D and L-Series lenses. In my career this book has been the second least useless thing I have purchased. It was a close second to the Canon tripod I purchased that broke after a month of use. Coincidentally it also cost about $34.

    OK book – not as good as some of his earlier books – same stuff regurgitated. Disappointing that my copy has pages 97-128 missing! I hope Amazon will replace it at no cost to me – pretty cut about it.

    There are better books out there.

    After much hesistation i decided to buy this article, seeing how Scott was going on about it in one of his videos on site.

    Guess what? I dont think this book worth even paper that it was printed on.

    You got 1/3 of book going on about how great Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Bridge are. Then you got 1/3 of book rambling about printing.

    What you left with? Handful of reviews on how few tools work, and pretty worthless examples for any digital photographer who actually have at least some idea what they doing.

    And oh no – no DVD included. Yuppie.

    You will be better off buying few issues of “Advanced Photoshop” magazine for same amount of money.

    Sorry mr. Kelby, but this is pretty much worst book on Photoshop i ever saw.. Best one was Welcome To OZ!.. that one actually had DVD, had inspiration in it and had real world use for all the tools. Not just “how to convert to B&W” (sorry, its a single adjustment layer that everyone can figure out in few minutes).

    Scott Kelby is one of those Photoshop writers that thinks he is a comedian with his silly jokes which are not funny, and apparently is unaware that serious readers merely want a book that is straight forward with usable information.

    Kelby’s book contains too many boring anecdotes and is poorly organized made all the worse with a bunch of mundane pictures making this one of the worst Photoshop books I have ever read.

    This books gives the impression that it is a joke to Scott Kelby and could not care less about controlling himself and make an effort to write sensible book.

    Reader beware, if you are seriously looking for substantial information on Photoshop then do not buy this book. Even with the great discounts that Amazon gives this books is a rip-off.
