A guide to Adobe Photoshop includes step-by-step instructions using innovative techniques to achieve creative designs and provides tips on using a photograph to turn a face into a monster.
Welcome to the wacky, wonderful world of Adobe creative director Russell Brown! In this brand-new book/CD package, the man who's proven he'll do anything to get you excited about Photoshop showcases the possible by distilling his legendary presentations into a form you can take advantage of without attending a conference or high-priced seminar. In The Photoshop Show Starring Russell Brown, you get the best of both worlds: the charisma and wild energy of Russell Brown the presenter (in the video tutorials that accompany the chapters), plus the practical instruction you need to achieve the dazzling results displayed in the sample artwork. Through beautiful, four-color art, a teaching style that emphasizes the fun and imaginative, and an accompanying CD that includes QuickTime movies and project files, this volume takes you through all of Photoshop's features. Video tutorials include Motion Magic, Seeing in Black and White, and Changing the Scenery. In Part Two, you'll learn how to transform an ordinary portrait (yours?) into Frankenstein's monster. With Russell as your guide, you'll even find instructions on Digital Shaving with the Healing Brush--how cool is that?
