Peter Bauer: Best known as the Help Desk Director for the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), Pete is also the author of a half-dozen books on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, a contributing writer for Photoshop User and Mac Design magazines, featured columnist for PlanetPhotoshop.com, and software documentation writer for a variety of Photoshop- and Illustrator-related products. An Adobe Certified Expert, he also appears regularly as a member of the Photoshop World Instructor Dream Team. As NAPP Help Desk Director, Pete personally answers tens of thousands of e-mail questions annually about Photoshop and computer graphics. He has contributed to and assisted on such projects as feature film special effects, major book and magazine publications, award-winning Web sites, and fine art exhibitions. He has taught computer graphics at the university level and serves as a computer graphics efficiency consultant for a select corporate clientele. Pete and his wife, Professor Mary Ellen O'Connell, of the University of Notre Dame Law School, live in South Bend, Indiana. Despite being considered a world-class techno-geek, Pete still plays organized ice hockey.
For my wife — I am continually in awe of all you have accomplished, and all you continue to accomplish! Your dedication to the law governing armed conflict makes the world a safer and more civilized place.
First and foremost, I thank Photoshop Hall of Fame member Deke McClelland for suggesting me for this project. I also thank Matt Wagner (formerly of Waterside Productions, and now an independent literary agent) and Bob Woerner of Wiley (the guys who put the deal together) as well as the superb crew at Wiley that put the book itself together. I would certainly be remiss if I didn't give a public thank-you to Stephanie Elder Robey at PhotoSpin.com, who keeps me so well supplied with high quality images. (You'll see a number of PhotoSpin images on these pages.) And I have certainly benefited during the production of this book from the insights and experiences of those colleagues (who must remain nameless) who participated in the development of this excellent new version of Photoshop. The whole team at Adobe and the volunteers who risk crashes and lost projects in order to stomp out prerelease bugs: I salute you!
On a more personal note, there are quite a few folks not directly associated with the production of this book whose contributions I'd like to acknowledge. Scott and Kalebra Kelby, Jim Workman and Jean Kendra, Jeff Kelby, and Dave Moser of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) make my professional life what it is today. Without them, I'd be just another techno-geek who knows far too much about a couple of computer programs. With their support, I'm the Help Desk Director for NAPP — and get to share all that geek-knowledge with tens of thousands of NAPP members and with you. I also thank my colleagues, the instructors of the Photoshop World Dream Team, for always sharing their techniques and experience. I've learned much from each and every one of you. (Okay, well, Julieanne Kost of Adobe has to move to the top of that list!)
Needless to say, I thank my wife, the incredible Professor Mary Ellen O'Connell, for her unceasing support through yet another book project.
