This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to enhance your photographs using one of the most popular and most user-friendly software in the market, Photoshop.

If you have ever seen a stunning photograph, you will know that the image that you are looking at has been well thought out from many perspectives. The first will be composition, since the composition of an image is vital to its presentation. The second thing that you will notice is the depth of the image and the way it draws you into it. This may be achieved by intensity of color or by the fact that the photographer has used his unique style and what the photograph presents is original.

There are so many photographs of everything in this world, though making images that stand out from the crowd is easier than you may imagine. Of course, you need a certain amount of photographic ability and would need to know the rules of composition, how to use light and reflection as well as knowing how to enhance the photograph using your Photoshop software. The better composed and planned the photograph is, the better the results, even if you intend to use Photoshop.
