Through step-by-step procedures based on years of experience, professional photographer Ken Milburn describes a complete workflow sequence that begins with essential equipment and preparation, takes you through detailed editing techniques, and ends with your finished images looking the way you want, ready to be shown to the world.

This completely revised edition of Milburn's original bestseller teaches you everything you need to do before, during, and after the editing process.

  • Be prepared with the right equipment

  • Get the basic shots right

  • Organize your photos and find the gems

  • Make reversible adjustments

  • Refine your images with care

  • Use special effects cautiously and tastefully

  • Publish and share your images effectively

You'll also learn advanced techniques with Photoshop CS2 and Photoshop Elements, though this isn' t a typical Photoshop how-to book. Milburn's workflow strategy ensures that high-production jobs are done professionally with a minimum of frustration. With Digital Photography: Expert Techniques, you'll become a better (and more profitable) photographer.

The title of this book is misleading.  It should have been called "Digital Photography: Expert Techniques with Adobe Photoshop".  It seems that it's pretty useless if you don't use Adobe Photoshop, though admittedly the information in the introduction put me off checking how much use it is for people who use other software.  As a result I can't comment on the usefulness of the book to somebody who uses the author's choice of software.
