Russ Brown - Book

My new book, “Paths to Artistic Imaging in Photoshop” has arrived and is available to purchase. It is 250 pages of creative processing goodness! I cover such topics as modern colour correction, use of the LAB colour space, Digital Infrared, creative use of High Dynamic Range processing, Focus Stacking, creative texture application, Night, Low Light and Time exposures and a whole chapter of tips and ideas to give your work a creative boost.


But don’t take my work for it; here’s what my friend and namesake, Russell Brown, Principal Creative Director at Adobe Systems has to say:


“There is only one person on the planet who can write a better Photoshop book than I can and that’s Russell Brown. To be more specific, that is Russell J Brown from Australia. This book might be the best Photoshop book that I never wrote. It is more than the average stuff about quick keys and new features. This book is about creative ideas! These days that is a refreshing break from the norm. This clearly demonstrates the power of the Russell Brown name to deliver quality anywhere in the world!”



And if you missed the news on my homepage, my friend and beta-reader of the book, Marco Olivotto has posted an interview with me on his blog.

A video trailer as well as an author interview can be viewed on Youtube. The interview is here and the trailer here.  Also, Download the sample file of the book’s Introduction here.


**Update - In Australia, you can currently get the book either by using this button,                      or from the bookshops listed below. I have now reduced the price from the regular $59.95 to just $35 with flat rate $15 shipping anywhere in Australia, to move the last of the books. I only have a few boxes left and when they're gone, they're gone, so now is the time to snap one up!


For those outside Australia, it is available from Half Price Books in the US. See their site for info. New copies are no longer available from Amazon, however used copies may still show up there from time to time, so it doesn't hurt to check. **As it has become difficult to obtain the book outside Australia and the US, I will send the book to other parts of the world at a discounted price, to offset the horrendous postage cost from Australia. Click this button                                to get it for AU$80, including postage, anywhere outside Australia and the US
