With the release of Creative Suite 6, Adobe Photoshop offers even more functionality and remains the premiere photo-manipulation application for the professional design market. The eight projects in this book were carefully designed to depict the types of assignments that you will encounter throughout your graphic-design career.

After completing these projects, you will know how to:

  • Define appropriate resolution and compression settings for a variety of distribution purposes.
  • Select specific photographic elements and separate them from their backgrounds with a variety of different tools and techniques, including the new content-aware patch.
  • Composite raster images, vector objects, and text elements to create unified, finished documents.
  • Use Photoshop’s powerful controls, now offering improved auto-correction settings, for correcting colors, adjusting lighting, and repairing other types of visual damage in your images.
  • Create unique artistic effects using many of Photoshop’s filters, adjustments, brushes, and the newly expanded set of 3D tools.
  • Use valuable time-savers such as libraries, styles, actions, and batch processing to streamline your workflow.
  • Prepare images for web publication by adding animations and defining image slices.
  • Save files with appropriate settings and formats for a variety of print and digital distribution methods.
