Mastering Photoshop for Web Design
This book was written in the hope of filling a gap — a gap that has existedfor as long as designers have been using Photoshop for Web design; a gapthat we so often fill with tutorials focused on the latest trends and oninspiration galleries that are quickly browsed and forgotten; a gap that isgrowing as quickly as our technologies. It’s a gap of foundation.The fast pace of the Internet has focused us on the latest and greatesttechniques, which typically have a lifespan of only a few months. Rarely dowe focus on the fundamentals, the principles that outlive the trends.Unfortunately, the principles are often less appealing than the shiny andnew. Photoshop tutorials offer quick results. They hold our hands step bystep until something incredible appears, but they rarely go in depth toexplain the principles that enable us to create something unique andincredible of our own.Mastering the fundamentals of our tools opens our minds and unlocks ourinherent creativity. It helps us recognize the difference between timeless andtrendy. It increases our efficiency and ultimately makes us and our workmore valuable.My hope is that this book helps you gain a deeper understanding of Photoshop. If you’re a beginner, I hope it gives you the comprehension youneed to bring your ideas to life. If you’re a veteran, I hope it unveils some of the mysteries that have always boggled you. Ultimately, though, I hope thisbook increases your appreciation of the fundamentals and the subtletiesthat make Photoshop such a powerful tool.
