Much Obliged!

Much Obliged!

Even though my name appears on the cover of this book, as with all collaborative efforts, this would not have been possible without the help of the following people:

Regina “GNR's” Cleveland, the Queen here at Digital Mastery, who (as usual) dedicated so many late night hours to this book that she has earned the title “Sleepless in Colorado.” To her credit she only had one episode of crankiness during the sleepless weeks. She's recovered, but I'm always in the doghouse with her 10-year-old daughter, who thinks that Photoshop is part of the Evil Empire because it makes Mommy miss bedtime stories.

Steve Weiss (executive editor), for his persistence and diplomacy, and especially for always answering his cell phone, even when he's on vacation!

Stacey Beheler, for her efficiency, her quick responses, and for always being the first one to ask, “How can I help?”

Susan Brown Zahn and Tim Grey, two gifted hair-splitters, who toiled through the painstaking details and helped tighten things up.

Mark Clarkson, for coming through in a pinch, and for understanding the meaning of the word “deadline.”

Chris Murphy for helping out with the color management chapter.

Kristine Evans, who has the uncanny ability to find just the right image at the right time, and who made it possible for me to get through this project without going completely insane.

Jay Nelson, who has helped me in more ways than I can imagine or remember. He's an amazing guy who always comes through in a pinch, and seems to be most happy whenever he's lending someone a hand.

Jerry Kennelly at Stockbyte and Stephanie Robey at PhotoSpin, whose generous contributions of stock imagery made it possible for us to include a bunch of great practice images on the CD at the back of the book.

Andy Katz, for keeping things lively with his maniacal laugh, and for his stunning imagery.

My brother Nik, who was always at the ready with as much constructive criticism as I could handle, when others would simply say “Oh, that's nice.”

Scott Kelby, Jim Workman, Dave Moser, and the rest of the crazies at NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals), who have made my life as a Photoshop hack more enjoyable than I thought possible.

To all the gifted artists and organizations who contributed images to this book. Your illuminating work transformed our bare pages into things of elegance, sparkle, and humor.

And finally, I thank all the people who have attended my seminars over the past 10 years. You've given me a limitless supply of inspiration and feedback and have allowed me to follow my passion for knowledge and understanding.
