So what’s not in this book?

There are some things I intentionally didn’t put in this book. Like punctuation marks (kidding). No, seriously, I tried not to put things in this book that are already in every other Photoshop book out there. For example, I don’t have a chapter on the Layers palette, or a chapter on the painting tools, or a chapter showing how each of Photoshop’s 102 filters looks when it’s applied to the same photograph. I also didn’t include a chapter on printing to your color inkjet because (a) every Photoshop book does that, and (b) every printer uses different printer driver software, and if I showed an Epson color inkjet workflow, you can bet you’d have an HP or a Canon printer (or vice versa) and then you’d just get mad at me. I also didn’t include a chapter on color management because every Photoshop book has one (go look on your shelf and you’ll see), but beyond that, a chapter on color management just doesn’t cover it—that topic needs its own book (and if you want the best one on the subject, check out Real World Color Management by Bruce Fraser, Fred Bunting, and Chris Murphy, from Peachpit Press; ISBN: 0201773406).
