Corey Barker–Executive Producer of PlanetPhotoshop.com and one of the Photoshop Guys of Photoshop User TV–brings you this completely new set of techniques, tricks, and tutorials in this second volume of the Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers series. Ever wonder how that movie poster was created, or how they created that cool ad in the magazine, or maybe even how to take a seemingly mundane photo and give it the Hollywood treatment? This is the book for you. Whether you are a designer, artist, or even a photographer, there is something here for everyone. Corey starts out discussing the common techniques and resources you'll use over and over again, such as extracting elements from backgrounds, creating and using brushes, and incorporating textures into your work. He then dives deep into dedicated chapters on typography, design effects, special effects, photography and design, and 3D. As you work through these exercises, you will start to see the potential of some of Photoshop's most powerful features and how, with a little experimentation, you can open up a whole new world of dazzling effects.
