Here’s what other readers think.
Do I need a Kindle or eReader?
No, you don't need to buy a Kindle or eReader device to read these books. All that you need is free eReader software and there's a large choice. If you are an Apple user, you can use the Books app that comes with every Apple computer, iPad and iPhone. Your book is then uploaded to the Apple cloud and shared across all your Apple devices.
If you are a Windows PC user there is a wide range of free eReader applications. Personally I like the free Kindle software. It has great features and is available for Apple, Windows and Android devices.
What if I'm not satisfied?
Let me know within 30 days of purchase and I will refund you in full. You can contact me by email using [email protected] and no I won't be offended. It will help me though if you can say why you want a refund so I can improve my books and service.
Which format should I buy?
I now offer my books in two formats which are PDF and ePub. Older books are also offered in the proprietary Kindle Mobi format, but Amazon has now retired this and adopted ePub instead.
ePub is by far the best format for reading books as it supports many features like being able to change text size to make it easier to read. In contrast, PDF is better for layout and printing pages or sections of a book.
When purchasing a book, choose the format you would like using the dropdown. I recommend purchasing the "All" format option where possible as this will give the greatest flexibility for the future.
Can I print the book?
Yes you can.
Whilst you can purchase most of my books as paperback from Amazon, I know some people only want to print a page or section. The PDF version of the book is great for this and there are no restrictions provided that it's for your own personal use. You can even print the entire book if you like, although with the cost of ink it may be cheaper to buy the paperback.
Can I read the book on multiple devices?
You can have your book on as many devices and computers as you like and make copies provided that it's for your own use.
How do I get my book onto my Kindle?
Amazon has a service which you can use to email books you purchase to your Kindle library. These are then available on your Kindle reader or software. Amazon has a lot help on their website about the Send to Kindle service.
But Send to Kindle isn't the only option Amazon offers. You can read about others in the Help pages of the Amazon website.
Like all of Robin Whalley books this is just another great addition to any photographers library. Primarily written for Photoshop users with a degree of understanding their way around the program. Following this books you quickly learn how to create masks and how to work with masks effectively. As I do a lot of texture blending, masks are essential for me to improve and present my work. professionally.This book teaches you how to identify the best technique to apply and how to produce good masks easily. Well written with downloadable content to follow along with. Comprehensive without confusing you. An invaluable addition to Essential Photoshop and Photoshop Layers.
Masking has always been a difficult area for me, only because I’ve not really studied the process in depth; your book has allowed me to do just that. A lengthy, but much appreciated, Introduction, sets out your philosophy very clearly, and I was particularly taken with the phrase ‘There is a wide gap between knowing something and being able to apply that knowledge in a practical situation.’ I’ve been guilty too many times of following a comprehensive list of instructions, arriving at the correct outcome, and foolishly (or conceitedly!) thinking ‘I can do that now.’ How wrong I was!
I like your simple, easy-to-understand approach, with diagrams and information at every step.
Masking is now a much simpler process for me, but I continue to learn!
This is one of several books by Robin Whalley I have used. I find these publications to be highly valuable because of the logical presentation of the material and the clarity of the instructions. Using the text and sample images, it is very easy to understand and master new skills. The organization is also easily searchable and make excellent references when needed.
