Photoshop Layers: Professional Strength Image Editing

Ever since I published my book “Essential Photoshop” I have received regular requests for a follow up book. The original book was designed to give the Photoshop beginner all the essential skills required to be able to enhance their photography. It’s been a great success and many people have given good reviews on Amazon. What people have been asking for is a follow up book providing guidance on using more advanced techniques. I’m now very happy to be able to announce the new book is ready.

This latest book is “Photoshop Layers: Professional strength image editing” and is designed to advance Photoshop skills to the next level.

The book is structured into three sections:

  • Section 1 explains how to work with layers and how you can combine these into your Photoshop editing.
  • Section 2 looks at using masks to target specific areas of your images with adjustments. It covers how to create both simple and complex masks using fast, easy to apply techniques.
  • Section 3 examines blending modes for layers and how these can be used creatively in photography.

Accompanying the book is a collection of image files which support the many exercises and examples so that you can follow on your own computer.

The book is available on all Amazon sites and I believe this is the lowest priced, best value book of its kind.

View on Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com or search for “Photoshop Layers Robin Whalley” in your countries Amazon site.

    Hi Robin, is this book suitable for people using Elements or is the full CS version?

      Hi Lyn.
      No this is book is very much a full Photoshop book. There are some similarities with Elements but much less than you might think. I will look to produce an Elements version of this in the future.

    Thanks for the email about your new book. Just downloaded it in Vancouver airport as I wait for my plane to England. Took a quick peek and it looks very good. Looking forward to learning more,about layers and masks. Thanks, Janet

      That’s great to hear. Many thanks Janet.
      Hope you have/had a great trip. I used to love Vancouver but haven’t been back for the past 20 years.

    I’m tempted to download both this and the original Photoshop Essentials book – I could do with some PS help. Two questions though, I only have an old version of Photoshop (CS2) and the original Kindle – so the images would only be in B&W. Is there much reference to colour work in these books?

        Thanks for buying the books Derek.
        To answer your questions, these book will work with very early versions of Photoshop right back to version 6 (that’s pre the CS versions) and probably earlier.
        The images are in colour but if you find that a problem why not download the free Kindle Reader software from amazon and read them on your computer or phone.
