I agree with others here that Katrin Eisman's book is excellent.

I also agree that Michael Kieran's book is excellent, too.

Both are very worth additions to your PS bookshelf.

Thumbs down

I also concur that Eismann's book is excellent for retouching portraits.

I have not read the Kieran book on color correction, having first purchased Margulis. Dan's book is aimed at the professional press trade, but it is a marvel of depth and information, requiring several readings to assimilate much of it's contents. It is not easy going, but I can't imaging any book that offers as much information on the topic of color control. Margulis is a bit of a maverick in that he tries to avoid retouching isolated areas for color balance in favor of analyzing the image as a whole. I plan to purchase Kieran's book for comparison, but Margulis is my bible on color.

Books? I have them all. They all contain valuable information. Sometimes information overload.

By all means, get the books mentioned previously, get a good hold on the basics. Then spend as much time as you can at the living book. RetouchPro.
Come and hang out with Doug,Flora, Vikki, Danny, Leah and the rest of the pros too numerous to mention and they will bring clarity to all that has been written.

Best thing about this book; You ask it a question and it gives prompt good advise.

Another vote for Katrins book. Be sure and look for second edition. It has PS 7.0 included. Also notice Doug is one of the technical reviewers and some of our own RetouchPro people are represented. See page 181. Sorry for the self promotion but I am proud of being included.

Katrin is also an extremely nice and helpful person. She has always responded to my pleas for help in a very timely and helpful manner. I feel "Photoshop Restoration & Retouching" is a must for anyone, amateur or pro to have for reference. Its the retouching classic.

Different book

Check out Tom Ang's "photoshop for photography -the art of pixel processing"

He has a couple of others too ... so look at them at your local bookstore before buying

After reading the sample chapters on Katrin's website (link in earlier post to this thread), I have ordered "Photoshop Restoration & Retouching" and am eagerly awaiting delivery from Amazon!

Thanks guys!

I was just going to post this same type of thread, I'm sure you're all sick of these kinds of threads, but I need it!

Thanks and I'll be ordering this book. Well now that christmas is so close, I have to wait to buy things, but I may have to get it a bit earlier
