Denis,

The animated GIF on the Movies page on the website should just run automatically when you load the page - as an animated GIF, you don't need to load it since it loads with the page.

Or are you saying you're unable to download the file?

Steve

I bought the kindle version yesterday, and wonder what's so bad? I skimmed through first 20 pages and seems ok, but wonder if I should return it and buy the paperback! Love the book and website by the way

Re: Introducing… How to Cheat in Photoshop CC
Thanks Steve,

I understand now what you have done. I was expecting a video on the technique of creating the animated GIF. The GIF loads with the page and runs and the download of the file is OK also. I looked at the file after my post and realised that you could learn a lot from the file layer structure without the need for a video.

I have found the Kindle version OK except for the small size of some of the screenshot images. If you press on the image for a couple of seconds you can get a zoom tool to see a bigger view of the image which can then be expanded larger. Sometimes the image blown up is not too clear, but you can make out most things. I can understand why the book may be a better way of working.

Thanks for taking time out to reply.
Denis

Thanks, John!

Maybe it works OK on Kindle Fire, but I've had readers who have bought the book on a regular black and white machine - and that's no way to experience a book about Photoshop!

Thanks for replying Steve.
that explains a lot! I use Kindle on macbook pro and iPad. reference books work well on those, I find, but yes, on a black and white kindle it's next to impossible to use a book like this effectively.

Re: Introducing… How to Cheat in Photoshop CC
I noted your caveat that this is not a completely new book, but my copy dates back to CS4, so I am guessing there would be plenty of new things to read about?

I also didn't know about the 3D book until I happened by this forum yesterday, so I will probably order them both from Amazon at the same time. (Unless I can find a more convenient source in New Zealand)

I mentioned Steve on the Adobe Photoshop forum yesterday, which is where I do most of posting nowadays, and I was prompted to swing by and have a look round. It turned out I was glad that I did, because I'd somehow missed the new Colour Sampler tonal value selection features in CC. They must have been deemed too small to stress by the likes of Julieanne Kost and John Nack, who blogged new features as they came out. (John has moved to Google now, but still discusses Adobe apps in his blog).

But Steve has a wonderfully round about way of coming at things, and introduces little wrinkles that could only have been dreamt up by someone utterly familiar with Photoshop. Other people said they checked out this site and the Vimeo videos yesterday, and they were all very positive about the experience.

So thank you Steve for sharing all those little (and big) tricks and tips. It is much appreciated.

Re: Introducing… How to Cheat in Photoshop CC
Steve, I wish I had seen your comment before buying the kindle version. My big problem with it is the l key images are so small I can't make them out on any of my tablets. They are so small that I can't reliably click on them to expand them. I would suggest putting them in plain text in future kindle versions. It's almost like we need a cheat sheet with the key strokes on them.

The material itself looks great. That makes it all the more frustrating.

Thanks,

Felix

Which one are you? David Gilmour or Roger Waters?
