Get the Photoshop Image Making book back!

It is a Photoshop learning book for the beginners and the advanced users, written by Hwang Yong II, who is a korean-based designer. I think I bought this book in 2007, at that time I was looking for a book that could give me the idea about creating beautiful and meaningful web ad banner & Header image.

I read it over, and then I lost it. I tired to find it out in anywhere I can think out, one year’s later, I’ve found nothing : ( But this evening when I walked into my friend’s room and talked with him, I just found that book was next to his computer, oh, my! That’s the book! I was really excited and surprised with it, I get it back even after I’ve given up with finding it out, haha! That guy told me that he just found and took it out under his desk, poor guy!

Here it is!

Get the Photoshop Image Making book back

OK, I think this book is really good for:

  • Web Design – you can learn how to create a beautiful and nice Header Image, web ad banner, background graphic, and something else about web design.
  • Graphic Design – Don’t have a idea about making the Album Cover, Artwork, letter background graphic, and even the Gallery yet?, read it and you would get something you need.
  • Choosing the right picture material for your design – Yeah, you have thousands of picture materials, but you are missing the way to choose one of them for your design, you are confused, I understand. This book would give you some suggestion to pick the right one for your design

With this book, you can find out the way to make a nice graphic(image), and step further, you can even make the nice image with the pictures those were taken by yourself as the material.

And this book has another nice stuff that comes with also – a CD that includes the images for the chapters of this book and the original PSD file, and even especially the other 417 pictures including!

Happy to see it back again!

    Hi, Will, thanks for your comment here :D

    Yeah, those 5 books seems nice. Well, I just read 2 of them: <Don’t Make Me Think> and <Designing Interfaces: Patterns for Effective Interaction Design>, they are both good as the design books. I would suggest you to get <Don’t Make Me Think>, firstly. I got that one and read it more than twice.

    I suggested that one: Don’t Make Me Think! :D

    Steve Krug, BTW, in the comments to that page mentioned by Will, recommends this book Defensive Design for the Web, which looks interesting.

    That’s a funny story, Jack! I’m glad you got the book back after thinking it was gone. It’s always nice when that happens. It’s a little like that watch story. Well, not as amazing, maybe, but still nice.
