I’ve received my author copy of Photoshop CS3 Studio Techniques today. That means it should start shipping to anyone who has ordered it online and it should start appearing in bookstores soon.
I’ve decided to no longer participate in updating this book (I want to spend more time shooting and having fun and less time slaving over a keyboard). That means this is the first version of the book where someone else has done all the updating for the newest version of Photoshop. I want to thank Ben Long for taking on that task. Regina in my office worked on the revision as well and was nice enough to create the new cover image.
hey its great when we can do what interests us the most, teaching, shooting, writing or whatever.
and that’s the beauty of working in photography – you can change your mind now & then and switch directions.
Hopefully, you’ll never give up your gift for teaching.
Without you doing this book anymore will the quality go down? I noticed with Deke’s book for example, it’s terrible now, when he wrote it it was good, I really hope you still have something ot do with it and dome say and possibly some way of contributing even a minimal amount to it over time.
I’d rather write a new book from scratch instead of continuously updating the same title over and over again. I’ve handed this one and the How to Wow book off so I can have more time to shoot. I might come up with a completely new title, but that would be sometime in the future. I simply don’t have any interest in updating this book anymore.
With that in mind, I do own your book for PS 6.0 and want to get the new edition since a lot is added to the book since then, I do like your style of thinking and seen and read many other ps books and no one has your insight. Will I be better buying the PS CS2 Studio Techniques book then or the CS3 book, please advise.
The CS3 version should be fine since I don’t think they removed much of the content from the CS2 book… although I have not looked at it in depth. In general, I’m done with that book and have no interesting in looking at what was done to it, so I’m just making assumptions about it.
