There is a lot of discussion in the camera world about image-editing software. The development, progression and widespread adoption of image management and editing software, such as Adobe Lightroom, have called into question the position of Photoshop proper as the number one image-editing software for photographers.

Discussions aside, Photoshop CS4 recently hit the market, and the software will remain the image-editing tool of choice for professional image-makers worldwide. And while the software may appear daunting to a beginner, who better to help you master the software than WDC contributor and Photoshop Hall-of-Fame member Martin Evening? In Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers’s 677 pages and accompanying DVD, Martin presents a complete guide to the software from the bottom up. With a focus on what the software offers the photographer, Martin Evening covers every element, with new features in CS4 helpfully highlighted along the way. While the title may appear somewhat on the weighty side, it’s pretty much certain that it’ll be the only one you’ll need if you’re serious about exploring what CS4 offers the photographer.
