[(Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Photographers : A Professional Image Editor's Guide to the Creative Use of Photoshop for the Macintosh and PC)] [By (author) Martin Evening] published on (May, 2010) Reviews
Ich finde sehr hilfreich, dass ich das Buch an jeder Stelle aufschlagen kann, und den richtigen Zugang und hilfreiche Tips bekomme. In dieser Hinsicht finde ich es das beste Photoshop Buch.Sicher würde ich mir noch ausgiebigere Tips wünschen, aber jede Ausgabe wird in dieser Hinsicht besser. Martin Evening gibt sich echt Mühe.
Martin Evening schreibt seit Jahren für jede neue Programmversion von Adobe Photoshop ein neues Buch dieser Reihe.Wer nur ein einziges Buch zum Thema Bildbearbeitung mit Photoshop kaufen möchte, sollte dieses nehmen. Es ist nicht von einem professionellen Bücherschreiber, der heute über dies und morgen über ein anderes Computerthema schreibt, geschrieben, es ist von einem Anwender, von einem Fotografen geschrieben - und das merkt man. Evening versteht sein Handwerk und er versteht Photoshop. Hier wird nicht nur erklärt wie man etwas tut, hier wird auch erklärt warum man es so tun sollte.Ich habe mehrere Bücher aus der Reihe, jeweils passend zur von mir verwendteten Verison von Photoshop. Auch die älteren Bücher bleiben interessant, da sich zum einen grundlegende Wahrheiten zur Bildbearbeitung nicht ändern und zum anderen auf Grund neuer Funktionen nicht mehr benötigte Kapitel in neueren Auflagen weggelassen werden. So gibt es in diesem aktuellen Band zum Beispiel keine Anweisung mehr zur Verwendung der Unschärfemaske, da Martin Evening nun das Schärfen in der verbesserten Version von Adobe Camera Raw empfiehlt. Für den, den es noch interessiert ist der Text aber (noch) auf der beiliegenden DVD enthalten...
I recently upgraded from PSE7 to CS5 and was a bit overwhelmed with all the new tools and options now available to me. Martin Evening's CS5 book is fabulous! It does assume some prior PS knowledge, so I wouldn't recommend this book to someone completely new to PS, but it is very informative and full of practical tips for someone relatively familiar with Photoshop. I had a question about one of the techniques in the Image Retouching chapter and emailed the author. I received a prompt reply in less than 24 hours from Mr. Evening clarifying his description in the book and pointing me to some other resources. I have many pages earmarked already and will continue to use this as a reference whenever using CS5. Highly recommended!
I am a long-time user of Photoshop, but by no means a power user.I recently upgraded to the CS5 version after finding that CS2 no longer recognized some of the latest camera RAW formats.Along with the upgrade, Adobe give a one month subscription to Lynda,com, which has lots of training material on Photoshop (as well as many other Adobe, and other products). Looking at some of the materials there made clear to me that my usage was not exploiting Photoshop to its full potential. Not by a long way.Watching videos is one way to learn, but I find that until I have used functions pretty regularly, I forget exactly how to use them, and going back, searching for a video and watching it, or possibly several of them, to refresh my memory is not the best way to work. I needed a printed reference work.After looking at reviews of various books, I settled upon Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Photographers. I have not been disappointed. The book is well organized, and written by someone that obviously understands his subject. Its not for a raw beginner, but for anyone that has at least some basic idea of how to edit photos and wanting to unlock the full potential of Photoshop, I think it would be hard to find anything better.Its organization and writing style make it something that you can sit down and read from cover to cover, but also something which can be used as a reference to refresh the memory when you need to do that one little thing which you only do once in a blue moon, know its possible to do, but just can't see it by staring at the menus available in Photoshop.At least in my view, a valuable addition to my reference bookshelf.
Halfway through this book and I can't say enough great things about it. I am a photographer and illustrator. I've skipped some CS versions but finally hunkered down and purchased CS5 for the Illustrator's upgrades. I carefully looked over all the books as it starts adding up $$$ buying both the PS and Illustrator books. If you are a serious photographer this is the book to get. Kelby's are fun for quick and easy references but to understand the changes and upgrades of CS5 PS and CS5 Camera Raw this is the bible.Pros for me: Evening must have a graphic design background as the book is beautifully laid out, chapters are color-coded, Mac/PC shortcuts are color-coded as well and easy to follow, plenty of space for tips in the margins, wonderful white space for notes, and beautiful sample images.Although Evening is a British photographer, lucky for me, a large percent of the Camera RAW chapter images are pictures of the US Southwest. As a native, many of my images are similar and have the same complex image problems; tons of color saturation, difficult fore and background highlight/shadows and contrast issues. I also do studio portrait work and he addresses both issues throughout the book. Cons. Non yet.There is enough technology/science background for the photo-nerd, but clearly written for the non-tech photographer. No meandering stories (Margulis), no "ha-ha" stupid funny (Kelby), just straightforward information about Photoshop CS5 and Camera Raw for the Photographer and with these many Adobe upgrades, pace of life and busy photo and illustration work...that's all I want anymore.
