I have read Professional PhotoShop from cover to cover and found it fascinating but of little practical use to me. Here's why. I am an amateur working solely on RGB files and Margolis' entire emphasis is on CMYK and why it is so much more powerful than any other color space. He spends most of the book walking you through various color corrections in CMYK, assuming for example, that you intuitively know the correct CMYK percentages for fire engine red. On the other hand, just understanding how he looks at and analyzes color in a raw scan was very valuable as was his discussion of LAB. It's hard to say whether you would find it useful. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Kevin Prichard Sent: Monday, January 25, 1999 10:33 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Real World Photoshop 5 Hi all, In addition to "Real World Photoshop 5", people have been recommending to me a book titled "Professional PhotoShop 5.0: The Classic Guide to Color Correction" by Dan Margulis and Cary Sullivan.
