This thing good?
i dunno, but the photoshop tutorials from lynda.com are fantastic so i dunno if that dvd can compare.
Yeah, i'm gonna dl those tutorials when I get home tonight...
But my boss just dropped this on my desk... so I can't complain.
It's actually a 650+ page book, with a supplemental DVD included...
ya definitely, i'm sure it has some fantastic tips. but it's one thing to hear someone describe what they do with text, another thing entirely to see them make the adjustments themselves. so i hope the dvd has plenty of mini tutorials.
I can't wait to DL the tutorials you're talking about... they better be good!
haha OT has finally caught the buzz of the Lynda.com DVD tutorials I posted about these like 6 months ago, but didn't really tell many people, just casually mentioned.
Chris Orwig That thing taught me SO MUCH it's awesome.
Oh, and I have that exact book, but for CS2, it's good, but theres nothing the Lynda DVD's don't cover.
Damn I need to get that book. ok_computer are you paying the $25 monthly subscription or is there some other ways to get these videos.
Edit: I just ordered it.
I've got "Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Digital Photographers" by Scott Kelby. He's the editor of Photoshop User Magazine (or something like that).
I know he wrote one for CS, so there might be a CS3 one coming out soon.
I really like the way it is written. And it has been very useful for me.
I "acquired" it for free on OiNK..
Had I known how useful it was, I would totally pay for it. It's taught me so much.
hook a poor college student up?
thanks. And maybe an invite to Oink? PM please?
edit***shit, it says invalid URL.
What are the names of the exact tutorials you guys are watching?
There seem to be several different cs3 ones...
So it seems these tutorials are well worth the money(downloading?).. Will definately have to look into this to help further my hobbie
Anything in particular you guys recommend?
thats what i'm trying to figure out...
Anyway, this book seems really good, it's advanced enough that i've learned a good amount in the one chapter I read, but basic enough that a beginner could use it.
I just finished a really well written and explained section on Bruce Fraser's multi pass sharpening techniques.
That guy was fucking
oo good so it isn't too confusing for a beginner.. since i'm a PS noob and a DSLR noob as well haha.
Get the CS2 one hosted by Chris Orwig.
I've been watching the Lynda lightroom tutorials, and dear God, I can't stand the way that guy talks! It seriously almost turns me off from photography/image editing.
He like does this little "laughter" within a word, ALL THE TIME. And he emphasizes and drags out words like a douche. I can't demonstrate the laughter in text, but I'll try using hyphens. "We-e-elcome back to another tutorial. In today's wo-o-orkflow, we'll be exploring Li-i-i-ightroom's Develop module. Let's dig dee-e-eper into it!"
I understand it's fun stuff, but he doesn't have to sound like a blissful idiot the whole time he's explaining things. Just typing all this is making me angry.
I got that one too that guy is annoying
There is a bunch of tutorials from lynda.com on google video.
