Foreword

Foreword

Rev Up in Adobe Photoshop with Fuel-Efficient Key Commands!

Tell me: Did you actually read the owner's manual after you bought your most recent new car? Hmmm? So, do you know how to open all the windows at the same time—simply by pressing those two little buttons? Can you activate the automatic tint on your windshield to reduce glare or increase brightness and contrast? And hey, how about that super-nifty hands-free auto-pilot feature that controls ALL the functions of your car?

Let me guess: You didn't even know these things were possible, and you're thinking, “Why didn't I read the manual?” Well, if you had read the manual, you would know that I'm totally out of my mind and that none of these automotive shortcuts really exist.

Now you're probably asking yourself, “What does this have to do with that great software, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe ImageReady?” (The answer to this question, by the way, is an astonishing revelation that only a few can comprehend.) But the point is, IF these amazing things were possible with your car, then Michael Ninness would know them. But, unfortunately, since his driver's license was revoked, Michael's had to focus his talents elsewhere. And so, combining his interest in Adobe Photoshop with his long sdays spent at the county courthouse, Michael has mastered every Adobe Photoshop and Adobe ImageReady shortcut known to man and mechanic and put them together in this one convenient book, Photoshop 7 Power Shortcuts.

I can personally say that Photoshop 7 Power Shortcuts presents every Adobe Photoshop and Adobe ImageReady shortcut in the known universe. So, at this moment in time, this book literally has it all. And if you're the type who wants to get where you're going fast in your car—whoops! I mean fast with Adobe Photoshop—this unique book is the single reference you should have within close reach when you're working in Adobe Photoshop.

I produce many tips and techniques for using Adobe software, and I know this book will come in handy for me. With its easy-to-use compendium of shortcuts, Photoshop 7 Power Shortcuts is a great resource to have right at your fingertips. I'm already finding that I can't live without it.

As I always say: “Good design! Good design! Good design!” You can never fail if you create something that's designed well! Photoshop 7 Power Shortcuts takes a simple idea, packages it in a good design, and—BINGO!—it's a winner!

I know I'll never double-click Adobe Photoshop again without it.
