His solutions are often highly automated, and all the automation is made available for free, including a powerful PPW panel that serves as a command central.

The language is simple but the concepts are deep, cutting-edge, and covered comprehensively. Modern Photoshop Color Workflow is designed for an expert audience, yet the discussions of what makes for a good-looking image are accessible to all.

As befits the modern age, the physical book is only the start of the experience. The supplied actions have hundreds of pages of PDF documentation.

Readers have access to nearly a dozen hours of supporting videos by the author and his friends, and can test their own skills with the scores of original images that the text shows how to correct. The commonsense, scrupulously thought-out suggestions of Dan Margulis have shaped the practices of a generation of color experts.

Modern Photoshop Color Workflow arranges methods the author has developed in other books in a logical order with new approaches, makes clear the strengths and weaknesses of each, and suggests which can be omitted or accentuated when time is at a premium.

This archive, to be released over several years, collects the columns that DanMargulis wrote under the Makeready title between and In some casesthe columns appear as written; in others the archive contains revised versions thatappeared in later books. Makeready in principle could cover anything related to graphic arts production, butit is best known for its contributions to Photoshop technique, particularly in thefield of color correction.

In its final years, the column was appearing in six differentmagazines worldwide two in the United States. Dan Margulis teaches small-group master classes in color correction. All rights reserved. Without understanding eachof its settings, however, it can be like playing Russian Roulette.

Eight a. A nasty time to take pictures, but shadow values in the interest of a fairer competition.

It lightens the image through a maskgraphic technique, Yogi Berra, it gets late early there. So much for the excuses. The lighting is bad, thephotography worse, but it was a significant experience Ain my life and Figure A is a picture of it, by God. It takes only seconds, however, toproduce Figure B, thanks to a revolutionary develop-ment introduced in Photoshop CS.

At six foot three, the man in the next series of im-ages is too short to be Peter the Great, who spent muchof his childhood here, and too young and too friendlyto be Ivan the Terrible, who liked to hunt in the nearbywoods.

XX November www. The face is more rounded in D, the background trees darker, Yet Figure E, which has a reasonable face, falls afoul of the the hair and the jacket more detailed and more attractivelysad fact that darkness and grayness go hand in hand.

It looks colored. You can turn to get there from either E or F. Figure F is more competitive. We decided to put all the documentation written by Dan inside the panel and put also some additional articles written by me and one of the best Italian color correction teachers, aka Marco Olivotto. She introduced scripting through which the panel can intelligently recognize the color profile of your image when you apply the false Profile technique, not to talk about the options that expand the possibilities of the Bigger Hammer, Modern Man from Mars, Color Boost and Sharpening actions.

And what about the workflow itself? This was not possible in when PPW was born, as all the techniques had to be made by hand.

Teaching the Workflow DB: Color correction has always implied a broad knowledge of principles and techniques, which experience reinforces. Yet, if you see Dan working with the PPW panel, it looks like a fast and apparently effortless process.

Let me start from the bottom, i. Moreover, it was at an exhibition, and these are known for utter chaos and a necessity to be quick and entertaining. I later discovered that I could throw together some decent ideas in a couple of hours, and finally settled on the fact that four hours are enough to cover the workflow in detail.

What level of detail strictly depends on who is listening, though. To me, the core of the PPW is perception: I try to always keep that light on when I explain things, because less experienced practitioners may think that the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect is a commodity rather than something intrinsic to our vision. All in all, the feedback has been good, so far. Finally, video-course: nobody ever complained, and the approach was not to do a set of images from start to finish, individually, but go through four images together, side by side and step by step.

I thought that this approach might easily show when something is needed and when something is not needed at all. It must also be said that the PPW is highly volatile and somewhat dangerous, in general.

It is a short workflow, but it takes time to see through it. I recently launched a small contest on facebook, and about 30 different versions of the same picture arrived. I think at least 15 of them, maybe more, either went through the PPW or something which seriously attempted to mime it.

My own version, done in about five minutes, was better than most but definitely worse than at least two made by students of mine. The basic difference was that they cobbled together a way to get better luminosity than mine, and there was no discussion in the end: their approach was better. What is, in your opinion, the degree of freedom that a retoucher using the PPW has?

DDS: Ciao Davide, and many greetings to your reader, it is a pleasure for me to be a guest in not-another-news-blog, but a website that goes in-depth and try to analyze what is around us. My experience as a color correction teacher is telling me that we have a big issue here. A workflow, is a series of steps that we code to avoid over-thinking, to cut out mistakes or just to save time. So how can we have a workflow that grants us freedom? The PPW entrusts the user to make the right calls, at the right time, on the right images.

A Workflow and a Philosophy

Of course we can now see, also, the major drawback. Uneducated users will produce poor results. Also we should split our professional field in two areas, users who already know Margulis methods, and all others. Our world is ruled by usually wrong ideas about Photoshop, and how to use it. Youtube videos, text and images tutorials. But teaching is a complicated matter, so large efforts are wasted on explain tools buttons, and showing where these tools are.

But at first users grow their Photoshop culture like this, someone tells them where tools are, how to use it and what they do. But no one is telling me when they should use these or on what images or why.

Now imagine what happens when these users meet the PPW. At first they are lost. They are overwhelmed by possibilities, by the numbers of tools. But this, this right here, is where the PPW really shines. And this is the reason why I think that Mr.

Margulis invented something that no one ever did in the technique history. This is not in my humble opinion a workflow.Contrary to most other Photoshop books, not many Photoshop screenprints can be found. Step 2 is the channel blending. It's true, and the simple reason is that the presented techniques are not easy to become familiar with.

This is no longer the case; our installer is self-contained. It was annoying in that context, but here the same thing works well. Not an easy matter, but I found just the best recipe.

And many thanks to Dan Margulis that is, and will always be, my Maestro.
