Easy, helpful – and beautifully laid out
This is one of the best iBooks I've ever seen. Steve has done a spectacular job with iBooks Author to create a guide that's not just filled with high-reward guides that are easy to follow and understand, but that also feels right at home on an iPad. Besides, I use Smart Objects frequently, but I still learned stuff. Terrific.
An excellent book, easy to follow with clear instructions well laid out. The video is a real bonus.
For anyone who is interested in Photoshop this is a must; it takes Smart Objects into a whole new realm.
A smart purchase
If you want more freedom to experiment with Photoshop’s tools and filters while maintaining image quality, then Smart Objects are the key. This slick interactive iBook offers easy to follow, step-by-step guides to help you understand how Smart Objects work and how you can use them in your creative workflow.
This iBook has been designed specifically to utilise your iPad's interactive toiuch sensitive screen (rather than being just text and images ported over from a paper book). There’s also a host of tutorial images to download from the companion website, so you can follow every tutorial and master Smart Objects.
I’ve been using Smart Objects for years, but I still learned new things about them from this iBook. You’ll even learn how to combine movie files with Smart Objects!
