Work Smarter, Not Harder with Photoshop

There’s a great new Photoshop book hitting store shelves entitled Working Smart in Adobe Photoshop CS2 by Conrad Chavez. Yeah, yeah, I know, there’s already a boatload of Photoshop books out there, so do we really need another one? Well, I had the privilege of doing the technical editing on this book and I’d say it’s unique for at least two reasons:

  1. It’s a lean, mean book. Instead of trying to teach you everything under the sun, it’s a focused read under 300 pages. (This means you’ll probably actually read it, unlike the stack of Photoshop books on most designer’s book shelves.)
  2. It’s about about efficiency and working smart. No step-by-step tutorials, no cheesy neon styles, no quizzes. It takes a step back from the minutiae and looks at the overall efficiency of the workflow.

This is good stuff, folks. Don’t miss it!
