There's no program like Photoshop for editing photographs and creating photorealistic artwork. And there's no Photoshop teacher like industry expert and Photoshop Hall-of-Famer Deke McClelland. In Photoshop CS4 One-on-One: Fundamentals, Deke examines the essential capabilities of the application, from correcting color to retouching portraits. He also covers navigation, resolution, cropping, selecting, printing, and making web graphics. This course goes beyond basic tips and tricks, and provides the in-depth information and real-world context needed by serious students who want to master the software. Exercise files accompany the course.
