Photo Retouching with Adobe Photoshop
By Gwen Lute Amherst Media, Inc.
I noticed one negative review of this book and am surprised. I had quite a different experience reading Photo Retouching with Adobe Photoshop. This book is very well written. It makes Adobe Photoshop easy for even a beginner like me. I followed the directions for a couple of the tasks explained in this book and had no problem getting the results I wanted. Chapters cover topics from "a Historical Perspective" of photo retouching to marketing your work. Lute explains computer terms, such as plug-ins, hard drives, RAM, and external hard drives. Suggestions for buying a computer are offered along with what hardware and software may be best for your purposes. Capturing the digital image is discussed as are scanning techniques. Then the fun begins--and I do mean fun. Just learning Adobe Photoshop myself, I know how frustrating it is to follow directions when working in Photoshop. After working for hours, getting the effects wanted in your photograph seems impossible. Not a problem with Photo Retouching with Adobe Photoshop. Each step is clearly explained and illustrated. It is impossible to get lost or forget a step if you follow the script. For instance, chapter three ("Restoring an Image") talks about "Using a Layer as a Mask." Accompanying the text for each project are charts, photographs and the list of Adobe Photoshop tools as they will be seen on your screen is illustrated. The first section tells the reader how to remove an unwanted object from a picture. Fourteen easy-to-follow steps take you through the process. Several more projects are discussed and illustrated and each of the twelve chapters, subjects and projects are just as thoroughly explained and illustrated. Author and photographer Gwen Lute is a photo retoucher with over thirty-years of professional experience. Along with these talents, she lectures to professional photographers on traditional and digital retouching methods. Because I actually worked on my own projects following the instructions in this book, I can say without reservation this is a helpful and valuable book.
Before reading Photo Retouching with Adobe Photoshop by Gwen Lute, I had read the following books on the subject:
- 5 stars: Photoshop Restoration & Retouching (Katrin Eismann).
Exceptional book; one of the best PS books I've read on any topic. Check the reviews.
- 3.5 stars: Photoshop Retouching Handbook (Carol Braverman). Pretty good.
- 1.5 stars: Retouching Old Photographs - Photoshop Methods and Solutions (Michael Kiteley). Serious problems. See my review under that title.
In retrospect I should have quit while I was ahead.
Compared with the offerings above, the Lute book is a sham (and a shame). Poorly written, frequently incomplete explanations, very little useful detail, no accompanying CD or web-site for example images, lots of "white border" per page to make it appear "thicker."
I wouldn't recommend it for beginning, intermediate nor advanced PS users. I literally sold this book on the second hand market two days after receiving it.
I noticed there's an updated version of this book on the horizon (projected availablity: 2nd half of 2002). At this point I would not even remotely entertain the thought of acquiring it unless I read many, many stellar reviews proclaiming a complete rewrite.
Most of the other reviews for this book are right on. Don't waste your hard earned $ on this one regardless of your PS skill level.
You may be thinking, "So why didn't YOU pay attention to the other reviews before buying this book?" Fair question...
I'm a PS knowledge junkie... I LOVE to read about and learn new Photoshop techniques. Though I read the not-so-flattering-reviews before taking the plunge (like you are doing right now), I *hoped* they were too harsh. I *hoped* I'd find a few golden nuggets that would be useful to me. Bottom line: It was about the most useless PS book I've ever read (my personal library consists of over 30 PS books).
My advice: If you're interested in this topic, give serious consideration to the first book listed above and some consideration to the second. If you pass on the last one and this offering, you'll be a much happier camper.
I recently gave a 1-star review to this book, but some sort of guilt hit me and I decided to look through the book again to see if I could find some way to up my rating. Well, the author could try putting in a CD with pictures that are included in the book so the buyer could practice the lessons; and a different layout that would be more pleasing to the eyes wouldn't hurt either.
So does this book have some merit? Yes. Is it the best book on Photoshop retouching? No.
This book is going to have trouble competing when so many other books include hands-on tutorials via a CD. The positive behind this book is it's not lengthy, and how I hate buying a book the thickness of the Yellow Pages.
So who would buy this book? Someone who is heavily into using Photoshop and has purchased just about every book there is on Photoshop.
It's not the best, but it's not the worse.
