This guide helps digital artists blend traditional artistic skills with the tools and capabilities of Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended, which combines 2D, 3D, and video to help enable artists to mix mediums such as painting, photography, and sculpting with digital creations. Each chapter consists of tutorials on the program's features for creating digital effects and artwork, including simplifying the interface, texturing, animation, layer blend modes, masking, advanced selection techniques, smart filters, custom perspectives, editing UV maps, and painting. A working knowledge of the program's interface and the functionality of its tools is assumed, as well as how to use layer masks and adjustment layers. Images and files are included on the CD, and files can be downloaded online. Burns is a photographer, corporate instructor and lecturer on the application of digital art and design, and an author of books and articles on digital techniques with Photoshop and 3D applications.
