Preventive Photoshop by Douglas Ford Rea

The book gives an old advice like your grandfather did: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This eBook by Douglas Ford Rea advises you to take your best digital photos now for better images later.

“Preventive Photoshop” aims to teach amateur and professional photographers to take the time to shoot their pictures right in the first place and minimize the back-breaking hours hunched over a keyboard trying to enhance a photo. It also shows photographers how to integrate Photoshop at every stage in the photography process. It takes them through complete instructions, practical advice, real world examples, anecdotes, and great photos to make the learning process easier.

This eBook is in full-color with rich graphics, and contains project-based examples of every key step in the digital photography and editing process to create compelling pictures.

With “Preventive Photoshop,” the user will learn about fundamental lighting, tone, and special effects; HDR (high dynamic range) and wireless imaging; reading camera histograms; RAW capture; in-camera color management; effectively managing color spaces, optimizing, and enhancing images in Photoshop; successful image archiving; and more.
