then let's say I need to write a book. I've done that many times, but it was a long time ago. You can see here I wrote books back when Footer Shop six, Not CSX, but six was out. Ah, and here's one for photo shop CS to Ah, but what happened when I wrote books is the beginning of the book. In the introduction, I would always feature a picture of the actual book they were reading. Well, it's impossible to take a picture of a book before it's printed and inserted into the book that it shows him. So what I did is I made a mock up in this mock up, was just made in photo shop purely in photo shop. The pages of the book that's just running the filter called Add Noise and then another filter called Motion Blur, which makes the specs go on an angle. That's what the pages are, but I would end up featuring the cover of the book. Well, the cover of the book it's designed, and it shows up kind of like this, and I want to show you how I ended up transforming this into that mock up of a book and how w...

e can use that to, um, maybe experiment with different book designs, Decide which when we like. So here we have a book. This could be just a book you got from the book story, slapped on a table and took a picture of and we're just going to replace the cover. Then I'm gonna go over here and get my mock up for a book that I haven't written yet. This is a book I never wrote, but I was going to, and what I could do is take this document. There's a lot of layers in here because maybe there's a layer for each one of these pieces a text and one for the picture. Here's another picture I might decide to use and so on. And I'm just going to take all those layers and select them and all say, convert to a smart object in. Therefore it's gonna look like a single layer, even though if I double click in the thumbnail for that layer, I'll get a brand new document that is all the original layers in it. So I can always go back and make changes. I'm gonna then use the move tool and dragged this image over to the other document. Now that other document is in C m y que mode. So it was probably gonna complain. Not surprising. Didn't, um And I get it over into this document and now all I want to dio is too transform it so that it can conform to the shape of this book. Now, I didn't notice that the image that's in there, what happened is it doesn't just crop it to within the documents bounds if there is any part of any layer that was pushed So it went beyond the bounds of the document. It includes that. So I see some extra space up here on top. I can always double click on that layer to see the original layers it was made from. It's like this and I could add a mask. In this case, I'm gonna come in here and take me just a moment because I don't want that stuff sticking up. I'm gonna put all this in a folder and I'm gonna put a mask on the folder. I'm just trying to get rid of the stuff that extends beyond the top and bottom that and filled with black on the outer part. Okay, I'm gonna close that. It's gonna ask if I want to save it. I'll say, save. It'll save it right back to where it came from, which was that layer. And now that it doesn't extend beyond the edge, let's get it to conform to where the book WAAS. It's a little on the big side, so I'm gonna go and choose free transform. I'm going to bring in the handles, but I'm not sure why they go out quite that far in what I could do to get this to show up in that other area is I can use something called Distort. The way distort works is if you go to the edit menu and you choose transform right here is a choice called Distort, and it will allow you to pull the four corners of an object in a place them in different spots. Now, usually this is going to show up right on the corners of the object you're working with. But my assumption is that that document here has other elements that are extending beyond the documents bounds. It's just on layers that are hidden. So let me show you what it look like if I actually did that and I finished and it showed up in the right spot because I did this ahead of time. There it is. If you just have a normal rectangular object, nothing fancy going on and you choose Edit, transformed, distort. You can grab the individual corners in reposition them. And I did that for both the cover of a book and its spine. Well, if those are smart objects, then if you want to edit the contents of the smart objects, maybe I want to go in here and change the color of these letters or type in different text or potentially change the picture. Will only do is I double click on the thumbnail for that particular layer, and it shows up with a separate document. This is a different version of it, because this one was made ahead of time. But here I could end up changing the photo that's there. I could come in, and maybe in this case, I'll need to make a selection. I can find my right selection tool here. We'll use the magic wand. This would usually be a type player, I could just change the color off. But in this case, this is just a screenshot of a book cover. And so I'm gonna fill that, make it kind of crazy, wild thing. I'm gonna close this and say Save, and it's going to save it back to where it came from. Where did it come from? That layer, the layer I double clicked on and it remembers. All the transformations have applied to it. It would remember any filters that were applied. Any styles. Remember all sorts of things, and I could make a mock up of a book in later on. Decide which cover I'd like. Then I can double click on this again and I'll say, Well, maybe I want a different version. I can turn off some of these eyeballs. Here's a whole another version close that save in. It updates. So it could be very useful when creating mock ups because you can later on make changes. Therefore, I need to make this book cover once and as long as they used a smart object before I scaled down the cover before I transformed it to get the corners in the right position that I could easily double, click and change the contents, keep it as a nice little mock up

I am an avid reader of photoshop books, and an avid watcher of photoshop tutorials. I have attended (internet) several hundred of presentations. In the course of this endeavor, I have found my own favorite photoshop websites and instructors. Creative Live is probably the bargain out there as well as among the top three internet course sites. I have to say with great enthusiasm that the best Photoshop instructor is Ben Willmore. There are many great ones, but truly, he is the best I have come across, and, as indicated above, I have watched literally 100s of tutorials on Photoshop. I have seen all of Ben's courses, I think, and among them, this one is the best by far, and that is saying a lot, because that makes this course the best course on Photoshop to be found anywhere. I am going back and watching it twice. Not only is it comprehensive, but Ben is so familiar with his subject that he is able to explain it like no other. This is crème de la crème of Photoshop classes. I have been wanting to write this review for some time because I have been so thoroughly impressed with everything about this class!

Highly recommended if you want to take your Photoshop skills to the next level. Ben Willmore is clear, concise, and professional. He also has a good speaking voice that is not distracting but also keeps you engaged. Lastly, I would recommend that as you become more advanced, increasing the speed of the video (one of the options given on the menu)...especially if you've gone through the course once before and maybe want to watch it again. The double speed is very efficient as you become more advanced in Photoshop. Thanks for the help Ben!

Wow. I cannot communicate the value of this course!! The true value in this course is how the instructor identifies workflows you'll need before you'll ever realize it, repeats important information without it becoming annoying, and explains the "why" behind the techniques so well that even if you forget the exact method, you can figure it out via the principles learned. Excellent value, excellent material, excellent instructor!!!
