I’ve been saying all year that Matt Kloskowski’s book, Photoshop Compositing Secrets” (link) is the best Photoshop book of the year, but Amazon.com’s Editor’s thought it was even better than that, naming it one of their Best Books of 2011  for the entire Arts & Photography category (link). How cool is that!!!

Congrats to Matt for truly hitting one out of the park (and for also being one of their picks in their Top-10 Kindle Books for 2011, too!).

Matt, we are all so proud of you!!! What an amazing year you are having and it couldn’t happen to a more genuine, hard-working, and fun guy who does all of this for all the right reasons. Congrats!!!

  5. Hey way to go Matt. It couldn’t have happened to a better guy!

  6. I’ve already given friends 6 copies of this book. Every time I hear “you know Photoshop, could you just…” I send them the book and let them do it themselves. Whether you’re a beginner or a Photoshop veteran, this is the book on compositing you want. Along with Scott’s book on portrait retouching, I’ve learned a lot this year.

  7. Congrats Matt. Using the “overlay mode to clean up masks” tip has changed my Photoshop life! It ranks right after marrying my wife. Great book!

  8. I completely agree with Janine above. Between this and Scott’s portrait retouching have taught me a lot.
    This book gave me the arsenal of skills to win the “Shoot it First” competition at Photoshop World. Thank you Matt.

  9. Thanks so much to Scott for mentioning this (and for the kind words) and thanks to everyone for the congrats. I really appreciate it!!!
    Psssst… Just so you know… two of Scott’s books made the list too:


  10. Matt, great news. I like your books because you describe the whole process of project creation in a very accessable and understandable way.
