Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on April 2, 2010 by dustus

I know some of you are looking for a great Photoshop resource, so here you go! Photoshop Tips, Tricks, & Fixes offers a perfect alternative to spending lots of money on a book that will present much of the same info.

This comprehensive instructional magazine covers basics from explaining the many photo imaging tools to providing tips on color matching and reading histograms. Additional lessons address the following topics: masking, adjustment layering, photomerging, filters, lightening effects.

For the Photoshop hobbyist, …Tips, Tricks, and Fixes shows, in simple steps, how to rescue badly scanned and old photos by using a combination of tools and filters. On a personal note, I used this magazine as a quick reference guide a few times this week.

*It explains the concept of layering very well, and offers a disc full of free video tutorials. (I bought this at Barnes and Noble).
