Learn to harness the full power of layers and selections in Photoshop—and let your creativity soar!

Learning the basics of Photoshop is an admirable feat. Unfortunately, that’s exactly where most people end their Photoshop journey—with a fundamental appreciation of the program and the ability to execute a few helpful techniques. But without a full understanding of and capability with layers and selections—arguably Photoshop’s most powerful tools—you’re leaving the vast majority of Photoshop’s power and potential untapped.

Photographer and author Glyn Dewis’s new book, The Photoshop Layers and Selections Workshop, is here to change all that. The author of the bestselling The Photoshop Toolbox, Photograph Like a Thief, and The Photoshop Workbook, Glyn focuses on layers and selections in this book, knowing that if you can learn and master these two features, you’ll have everything you need to maximize Photoshop’s potential, bring out the best in your work, and harness your full creativity.

In this book, you will:

    •Start off with a detailed breakdown of the Photoshop workspace and how best to set it up for your workflow

    •Learn everything you need to know to work like a pro with layers

    •Conquer selections and cutouts, whether you’re working with the Magic Wand Tool, Quick Selection Tool, Pen Tool, Select Subject feature, Color Range feature, or Vector Masks

    •Dive into additional techniques to improve your skillset: color correction, composite blending, removing reddening in portraits, using Content Aware Fill to perfection, and more

Finally, in the last chapter, Glyn works through a start-to-finish project that brings all of the concepts together to show how they work in a real-world scenario.
