In Adobe Master Class: Advanced Compositing in Photoshop, Second Edition, Bret Malley helps you create stunning imagery with the newest versions of Photoshop, and take your compositing skills beyond anything you’ve ever imagined -- even if you’re already an experienced Photoshop user!
Malley offers an exceptionally strong grounding in Photoshop’s most powerful tools and techniques for seamlessly combining images. You’ll learn through behind-the-scenes tutorials based on examples from his amazing portfolio, and guest images (with interviews) from critically acclaimed artists.
This Second Edition fully reflects Photoshop’s major compositing improvements since mid-2014, when the First Edition was published. You’ll find expert coverage of Select and Mask, compositing images created with cellphone cameras, streamlining workflows by leveraging phone and camera Wi-Fi links, compositing images captured in RAW, and much more.
Malley begins with a brush-up on basic layering and image combination techniques, and offers expert advice on taking photos that are well-suited to compositing. He offers valuable words of wisdom on camera settings, lighting, color theory, image composition, and perspective.
Next, he presents a series of Photoshop exercises that walk you throughout blending layers seamlessly, creating atmosphere, artfully distorting shapes, working with textures, and more. Through hands-on projects, you’ll learn to create vivid images of imaginary worlds, often by layering and skillfully blending dozens -- or even hundreds -- of images.
From your first planning sketches to your final finishing touches, this entertaining book will help you push your abilities and make images of breathtaking creativity.
