Book summary

This book is for readers who find themselves looking at funny images and thinking "Hey, how'd they do that?" Readers will learn how to have fun with photos, such as taking still images and making the characters in them invisible while leaving the clothes untouched and combining images of animals to produce unrealistic characters. With the growing use of digital cameras, this kind of photographic humor is commonly desired by a large audience-both average digital camera users who like cartoon collections as well as those looking to learn Adobe Photoshop. This book is meant to be funny, but it's also very educational. The end-of-chapter tutorials are tongue-in-cheek, yet contain useful, easy to understand information. Organized into chapters by the general theme of the images, this book is packed with fun and interesting photos that will keep readers entertained until the end. [via]
