If I told you I had a dozen free Photoshop books to give you, is that something you would be interested in?
Yesterday I gave you 18 free previews of photography books. Today is Photoshop book day. Think about the old days when you could sit in a book store and page through books before deciding if you wanted to buy them… Well with Amazon and other online book stores, you basically guess if you like a book. And who has time for bookstores anymore? When I do get to go to the bookstore, my kids want to be in the “children’s area.”
And on the off chance I make it to the Photoshop section, the selection is usually poor at best and the prices higher than online.
So today at MCP Actions Blog, I bring you a bookstore – a small one of dozen books. In my time, I have owned many Photoshop books. I found a few available in preview mode – and added some others with potential. Many Photoshop and Lightroom Books were unavailable in this format. These books below are called Limited Previews – basically they skip a page or two here and there – but most of the book is intact for you. So you can scan and see if you get enough from it this way – or if you want to buy it so you can hold it and embrace it.
Here are 3 of my favorite Photoshop books that are NOT available in preview form – but the post felt incomplete by not listing them:
|Skin: The Complete Guide to Digitally Lighting, Photographing, and Retouching Faces and Bodies
|Photoshop Masking & Compositing (Voices That Matter)
|Photoshop LAB Color: The Canyon Conundrum and Other Adventures in the Most Powerful Colorspace
Below are the ones available for preview. I hope you enjoy – and I hope you will twitter, stumbleupon, and digg this post (using buttons at the bottom) so others can utilize this resource.
