A new Kindle book written by Robin Whalley especially for photographers is now available for download from Amazon for £4.99. Photoshop masking techniques are not easy skills to master and even with perseverence and practice we still need a good teaching book to guide us.
With loads of free downloadable images available to practice on as part of the package as well as using your own shots this could be just the resource needed if you want to develop your post-processing skills to a higher level.
