Editing Book Images with Photoshop

Photoshop skills are an important aspect of every DHer’s toolkit, and are even more crucial for those that rely on in-house photography. Almost all raw image files of artifacts must be edited in some way or another.  This SkillShare shows the novice Photoshop user a few skills to enhance his or her repertoire through editing fairly simple objects — books.

This skillshare is intended for those projects focused on displaying a collection of book images online or through print. It can be especially useful to small archives, museums, libraries, or collectors that are in the process of creating an online repository of their collection. Additionally, the skills learned in this video may also be used to edit and enhance other raw images of items and artifacts aside from books.
