New restoration book

Check out my review of Katrin Eismann's new book, "Photoshop Restoration and Retouching" on the Reviews page (, but you knew that).

Thanks, Doug, I hope you're getting a commission! I'm off to Amazon now. Looks like my prayers have been answered.

Regarding your printer recommendation-I have the 870, and I can't say enough about it. It's terrific!

Katrin Eismann book on retouching and restoration.
When I bought the book. Reading the first 4 chapters (chapters 1-4) I was not too impressed with it. Being a deciple of Dan Margulis and using only curves for color correction and contrast moves for color and b&w. Nevertheless the book (chapters 1-4 ) has some good tips in it and those chapters are geared towards the beginner as well as the intermediate retoucher. She explains the color balance sliders,variations, as well as (explains lightly on the use) levels and curves. And I can understand. The book is on retouching and restoration, not geared towards high end color correction. Depending on who (company) you work for as a retoucher and restorer. Your workflow might not be having you do color correction as a retoucher. Retouchers in the field will know what I mean by that. But the book kicks into high gear from chapters 5-10. The experiences she and others (other methods professionals are doing. Example: Eddie Tapp, who is a photographer as well) bring to the book. One method is as good, if not, better than the other. Katrin Eismann is a very open minded retoucher,author and educator. She brings the best(methods) to the book. She explains not only about retouching methods for the picture(portrait). But also to have a feeling for the portrait,as well as for retouching. Which is important for retouching. Example: don't make a 80 year old man into a 20 year old. Holding back on the retouching is better than over doing it.
Overall, I'm impressed with Katrin Eismanns' book "Photoshop Restoration & Retouching"
The book is not only for the intermediate/advanced (as it states in the back of the book). But for the beginner as well. Anyone who wants to learn about retouching and the advanced retoucher who wants to learn about other (and better) methods are candidates for this book.
