Description

This is the first in a series of books on Adobe Photoshop. Together, they will give the reader a good foundation in some of the major features of this ground breaking and industry changing program. They will cover general topics that will satisfy users from varying industries. However, there are also a number of industry specific “need to know” items, to help users to work effectively.

Learning Photoshop can be a daunting experience. It’s a large and complicated program that may take several years to truly master. These books are designed to place your feet firmly on the path to understanding and will guide you to the knowledge that will enable you to progress into a fast and productive Photoshop user.

Preface

When Photoshop was first introduced back in February of 1990 it caused quite a stir amongst the creative community. For the first time, designers and photographers were able to perform image editing tasks without resorting to high end equipment that cost double the amount. It started a revolution that continues to this day. Over the years there have been many other programs that perform similar functions to Photoshop. However, Adobe’s image editing software has seen off all comers and after 21 years, it is still the industry standard program in its field.

About the Author

After leaving school in Sheffield, UK, Steve worked in the print industry for 10 years before being made redundant. He decided to return to education and completed courses in many subjects including Information Technology, Business and Finance, Sound Engineering and Music Production, Science and a BSc. in Biomedical Science.

After graduating, Steve had several jobs in various scientific fields including immunology and developmental genetics, during which time he developed a keen interest in digital imaging which progressed into an interest in creative Photography.

After his current contract had expired, he undertook a course in Photoshop Artistry at the University of Sheffield. He soon realised that he had already amassed a great deal of knowledge in this field and knew more about image editing and processing than the lecturer. The lecturer asked if Steve would take over in teaching the course as he was leaving for another position. He contacted the University and was given a position as an associate lecturer teaching Photoshop Artistry, Computer Graphics and Advanced Digital Imaging. Steve taught at the University of Sheffield for three years and then decided to pursue a career in providing bespoke training and consultancy in Photoshop and Digital Photography.

He has continued in this role for the past seven years.

Steve remains an avid consumer of knowledge and education and has completed over thirty online courses and has become an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop and a respected Photographer in his own right.
