What's new in How to Cheat in Photoshop CS5


Well, it's that time again: the latest edition of the book is off at the printers, due to land in the United States in mid June, and the rest of the world shortly after that.

This edition covers all the major new features of CS5 in depth, looking at how to get the best out of:
  • Puppet Warp
  • Content-Aware Fill
  • Repousse
  • 3D scene setting
  • Refine Edge enhancements
  • Natural media brushes
...as well as covering a wide range of new techniques, including explanations of how to achieve several of the Friday Challenges we've all worked on over the past few months.

As always, I'd like to make it clear that this is not a wholly new book - it's an update to the previous versions, so you'll recognise much of the material from earlier editions of the book.

That said, I've been ruthless with hacking out older tutorials that were no longer pulling their weight, so there are now 70 pages of new and revised material in the book, including two new Interludes and some new approaches to old problems. And for those of you who don’t yet have Photoshop CS5, you’ll be glad to know that all the cut pages are included on the DVD as PDF files so you can still refer to them.

The big news this time is that I've worked hard on the DVD side, so there are now over four hours of tutorial movies on the disk - covering all the new features in Photoshop CS5, as well as going into detail on many of the techniques in the book. There's even a video tutorial on using the Pen tool, which should finally help those who have always struggled with this.

Also on the DVD you’ll find a new set of images from thefullmontage, as well as a terrific range of over 200 outstanding images generously donated by Forum members - as well as all the tutorial files you’ll need to work through the book.

If you’re planning on ordering the book from Amazon, it helps me if you can order it (as well as any other Amazon purchases you plan to make) through these links:

In the US: order here

In the UK: order here

In France: order here

Ordered it from Waterstones today, and while I was there the sales bloke said he loved Photoshop, so I thoroughly recommended your books and suggested he look at the site.

Got my copy today, It's nice and thick, can't wait to get stuck into it.
Might have to wait til the end of the week when my son-in-law and granddaughter have left.
4 days from UK, not bad.

Steve, you may have to split this book into two volumes. It just keeps getting thicker and thicker... I like it.

Great new book Steve. I'm looking forward to watching the tutorials.
Have only just read Anna's last comment - I fully agree, I think Marty would have been very pleased with that.

Just gone through the Repousse videos... wow, I would have never thought to use it like this.
Just thought the fish on the last video lends itself to the merge 3d layers command (from the vase and 3D letters vid) if you used one selection for the body (fat), and another for the fins (thin). Here's my quick go:

Thats fabulous Pete.

I had no idea what Repousse did until I watched Steve's videos. Very impressive

I still have your third edition but I went to the store just yesterday and looked over your book and I must tell you, "It's a MUST BUY!" I'm thinking of getting it this week to update myself on the new features of CS5. O' and it's HEAVY I might add. I couldn't find a place to sit while I looked at your book so I got a workout while looking over it.
