In The Photoshop Productivity Series: The Productive
Workflow–the third and final ebook in the three-part
"Photoshop Productivity" series by Photoshop guru Dave
Cross–Dave teaches you that "workflow" is not nearly as much
"work" as it seems, and he avoids the beginning-to-end,
step-by-step concept that many people think about when the word
"workflow" is mentioned. In fact, he prefers the term "smart flow"
to indicate any workflow that takes advantage of the automation
capabilities of Photoshop and uses nondestructive, smart techniques
to get that work done–and this is what he concentrates on in
this ebook. The first concept Dave tackles is working
nondestructively, including addressing the use of layers and masks.
But why exactly should one work nondestructively? Dave covers that,
too, addressing the specific advantages of such a "smart flow":
accuracy, creativity, efficiency, and flexibility. Dave then dives
deep and tackles vector tools, smart objects, smart filters, and
what he calls "smart templates." After working through this final
ebook in Dave's Photoshop Productivity series, you will have the
skills you need to work smarter–not harder–in Photoshop
to get the software to perform what you need, and to do it
efficiently, quickly, and nondestructively.
