Thread: Suggestions for a Photoshop Noob!

    Default Suggestions for a Photoshop Noob!

    Hi all,

    My PS skills suck rat's a**. With just some understanding on messing around with curves, it's just shoddy rudimentary at best.

    I'm not interested in correcting a bad image, but more on strengthening the points I want to put across in an image, such as adjusting the overall tonal hue to set the mood.

    Would you PS gurus advise a good book for me? Or would it be best if I attended a course

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I'm not a Photoshop guru, so my suggestions might not be that appropriate.
    For correcting colour across the entire image, I benefited tremendously from reading Professional Photoshop and Photoshop LAB Color (both are by Dan Margulis); as well as, from joining the online reading groups for these books at Digital Grin.
    These books are available at some of the libraries under NLB.

    Thanks Celeste!

    I'm also a smugmug user, but didn't know they had an online reading group, way cool!

    Regarding the LAB book, I have that one, only made it to the first few chapters . Great book btw.
