Chapter 5. I Want Candy: Photoshop iCandy

Chapter 5. I Want Candy: Photoshop iCandy

So what makes this Photoshop iCandy chapter different than the “Special Effects” chapter? Do the effects in this chapter use Alien Skin's Eye Candy effects plug-in? Nope. It's “iCandy” not “EyeCandy.” What sets these two apart is that iCandy only has six letters and Special Effects has 14 letters and is two words. What I'm trying to tell you is there is no real difference between the style of effects here and the ones in Special Effects, or even the Down & Dirty tricks chapter. The simple fact is, to make a book like this digestible, you have to divide it into chapters. If not, you've got just one big honkin' chapter (book publishers have spent millions on research that shows pretty convincingly that nobody wants to buy a book with just one big honkin' chapter). Look, this whole book is Photoshop special effects. I was darn lucky to be able to separate some effects into chapters for type, advertising, portfolio effects, and two photographics effects chapters. So, if you're looking at an effect in the iCandy chapter and think, “Shouldn't this have been in the Special Effects chapter?” Rest assured that nobody can prove you wrong.
