Summary

The book will introduce the beginning user to the next version of Photoshop, the world2s most popular image editing application. It will use the beginner-friendly format developed for the previous Teach YourselfA...VISUALLY books-concise text combined with lots of conceptual illustrations and generously captioned screen shots. The chapters will lead the reader through the steps involved in a typical image-editing project, from opening scanned photos and clip art, to manipulating selections and applying filters, to saving finished work for use in print or on the Web. This book will focus on the tools and features most relevant to what the average Photoshop beginner/intermediate wants to do, whether it2s building graphics for a simple Web page, formatting clip art for a newsletter, or retouching photos from a digital camera.
