Corey starts out discussing the common techniques and resources you'll use over and over again, such as extracting elements from backgrounds, creating and using brushes, and incorporating textures into your work. He then dives deep into dedicated chapters on typography, design effects, special effects, photography and design, and 3D. As you work through these exercises, you will start to see the potential of some of Photoshop's most powerful features and how, with a little experimentation, you can open up a whole new world of dazzling effects.
