Several of us are excited about the Photoshop (and PSE) Books for Digital
Photographers written by Scott Kelby because they seemed to address what we
were looking for in how to correct photo problems after the picture comes
out of the camera. See the review here:
Photoshop CS Book for Digital Photographers
We are the same people who buy lots of books and don't always work
our way through them. SO...
We decided to start up a reading club to work through the books together.
With the help of a few volunteers a schedule has been developed to get
through the books.
If you are interested in participating, here's the plan:
Find or purchase the get the book that relates to your program.
Margie will have the links set up soon so that you can purchase the books
through Amazon.com. Check here to find the links for the book you need.
For PS 7, get The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers,
ISBN # 0-7357-1236-0.
For PS CS, get The Photoshop CS Book for Digital Photographers,
ISBN # 0-7357-1411-8.
For PSE 3, get The Photoshop Elements 3 Book for Digital
Photographers, ISBN # 0-321-26905-5.
On Sunday night, May 8th, a new thread will be started for each version of
the book. Go to the thread for your book and get your reading assignment.
You'll have a week to work through it.
The fun part of this is that Scott Kelby gives you a link in the book so you
can download the photos he uses and do what he tells you step by step.
The schedule set up is going to keep all three groups working roughly
together. It will take 8 weeks to work through the book and by that time we
should all be experts in photo manipulation... right?
Your book club thread leaders are going to be:
PS 7 - Starling
PS CS - msmac_rn
PSE 3 - txminx
Remember we are going to be working through the book along with you. You
will use your threads to ask questions and get help, but don't expect any of
us to be the experts. The idea is that we will help each other out by
answering questions when we can.
I hope that you will join and work through these books. It should be fun!
Watch for the individual threads to open up on Sunday.
