Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4
Adobe Photoshop is central to almost all photography workflows and Lightroom has been rapidly adopted as well. Photographers often feel overwhelmed when starting with Photoshop; the sheer number of tools and options make it difficult for the novice. There is no shortage of instructional books, yet very few direct the user to the most significant aspects of the program in a way that reflects a real workflow for the photographer.
Adobe Certified Instructor Steve Laskevitch has leveraged his experience as a teacher and practitioner to create a guide that priovides a clear and effective workflow for editing photographs in Photoshop CS6 and its companions Bridge, Camera Raw, and Lightroom 4. Focusing on the critical elements of a workflow rather than covering every arcane feature, this book is designed to get you working quickly in these applications.
In addition to the essential features of these programs, Laskevitch covers new features specific to the 2012 releases, including:
- Lightroom geocoding: Quickly tag a photo with location data
- Photoshop's Bur Gallery (Tilt-Shift, Iris, and Field Blur tools): Add selective focus and bokeh effects
- New development controls in Lightroom and Camera Raw
- Recomposing or retouching photos with the Content-aware Move Tool
- Publishing to Blurb directly from Lightroom
- Video (no longer limited to Photoshop Extended)
- Adaptive Wide Angle: straight lines straight again
- Adobe Camera Raw 7: Local controls for White Balance and Noise Reduction
