Re: a must have book

Hi Bill,

I wholeheartedly agree. I also like how she so generously gives credit to so many people. Not only to those whose technique she puts in the book, but those who have influenced her. For example, at the very outset, she gives credit to the authors of "Channel Chops", which has for many years, been THE book on masking and channels.

So many authors write as though they themselves came up with the techniques they illustrate.

Speaking of which Scott Kelby has a new book due out in January titled "The Photoshop CS Channels Book".

If you are a serious intermediate (or above) level Photoshop
user, you simply have to have the new book, Photoshop Masking &
Composting by Katrin Eismann. . She combines great teaching ,
writing, and creative skills in this book. It is daunting at 500+
pages but well worth the time. I rank it with Tim Grey's Color
Confidence as the 2 best Photoshop books I have read to date and I
have read a lot of them. It is not the typical "trick" book but
teaches the masking skills we all need to master in depth in order
to use Photoshop in any way. Probably way too much for the
beginner though. Let's make this book a best seller so she and
others will write more advanced level Photoshop books!
