    Adobe Photoshop

    For too long I have had Photoshop and never learned to harness its true power. I can do some simple things....but I am looking for a reference type book that explains the techniques used to achieve different effects - lighting, blending, using channels etc. I'm not planning to be a master of the Shop; I want to be more than adept however. Anyone have a good recommendation?

    Burt Monroy is on Tech TV's TSS every 2-3 weeks and he is a photoshop master. His books will help you tap into the power that you are looking for. Burt Monroy's books and Search tech tv's website for a collection of Burt's excellent tips and also Amazon's list may provide ideas and Photoshop 7 Down and Dirty Tricks Series is expensive but very good.

    Frag and Howard, thanks for your recommendations. Now if they would cram "How to Create Spare Time When You Have None to Spare" into the same section....or maybe even as a value added CD to go along with the text.... <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    Thanks guys. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    As you know Amazon has nearly 160 photo shop books--the local bookstores have a lot of them and Photoshop 7 Artistry: Mastering the Digital Image is a popular one.
