What a great book! Bret's writing is helpful, practical, incredibly well thought out, and entertaining! If you really want to take your Photoshop skills to the next level, this is the book you need. Working through these detailed and easy to follow tutorials definitely helped me build my skill set in Photoshop. I really hope there's a new paperback edition soon!
Bret Malley's book "Advanced Compositing in Photoshop" is the best book out there for explaining complex concepts. I'm a fortunate student of Bret's, having sought out his expertise after taking too many photoshop classes from people who could cover the basics, but lacked the in depth skills that Bret knows inside and out. This is the book he wrote to teach his students how to do what he does, it's the book we use in class, and it will be by my side for years to come. In our class, we follow all of the tutorials in the book, and they are challenging and difficult, but so well thought out in talking you through it, that you 'll actually learn the concepts. He tells you the why, not just the what, and that's the difference between building a skill set that is useful, and one that's not. This book is the best one out there.BY:ebook777.com
