Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard when it comes to image editing - and Photoshop 7 is one of Adobe's best updates so far. Although there is no shortage of books on Photoshop techniques, few of them recognize the needs of Web designers for targeted, practical information on topics like compression, browser specifications, color control, and image optimization. Renowned author and designer Michael Baumgardt fills that void with this full-color guide to Adobe Photoshop 7 directed at Web designers.
His long experience with design and Web technologies informs his clear, no-nonsense approach. Because many designers depend on Adobe's Web site development tool, GoLive, to bring their designs to the Internet, he's included helpful sections on combining Photoshop and GoLive 6.
