Chapter 5, "Fit to Print" is a step-by-step guide to color management. You will begin by configuring your camera to match Photoshop's color space. Then you will configure Photoshop for Adobe RGB (1998). You will finish up with calibrating your monitor and your printer. Chapter 6, "Local Color" works with you to get the color right in your photos. This is done by using a couple of techniques to change how the Eyedropper tool measures color and also to get a neutral grey background behind your photos. Simple, but important, methods that dramatically impact your photos and take you to the next level as a photographer. The author also explains Drag-And-Drop Instant Color Correction, studio portrait correction, adjusting RGB Flesh Tones as well as a trick to make your grey skies blue again.
Chapter 7, "Black and White World" will show you how to create stunning Black and White images from your color photos. Here you will work with the Lightness Channel Method as well as CS3's new Black and White Converter. The author also lets you in on a little method that he learned while he was working on another technique. It is a quick and easy way to create high-contrast B&W images. You will also learn about doing B&W in Camera Raw. Chapter 8, "99 Problems" will work with you on diagnosing and fixing common digital image problems. These include fixing color in indoor shots, what to do when your subject is in the shadows, dealing with over- or under-exposed photos, dodging and burning, red-eye, reflections on glasses, as well as fixing spots and sensor dust on one or many photos at a time.
Chapter 9 "Faces" is all about retouching portraits. Pretty much anytime you are creating a portrait, you are not trying to recreate every blemish, pimple and mole that the person has. What you are trying to do is to capture the essence of who the person is. While that pimple may exist, it doesn't mean that it has always or will always exist. So what you are trying to accomplish is to maintain the skin's appearance and not make any retouching look obvious. Some of the things you will learn include how to reduce a double chin, remove dark circles under the eyes, reduce wrinkles, add highlights, enhance lips, brighten eyes, and whiten teeth.
Chapter 10, "Special Delivery" will explore special effects for photographers. Some of the effects include Quadtoning, the process of using four different grays and/or brown tones to add depth to a Black and White photo, taming light to get it to fall where you want it to, and punching up drab colors. You will also work with portrait effects such as High-Contrast, creating fake Duotones, creating collages, infrared, drawing the viewer's eye with color and creating panoramas. You will also learn about "Scott's Three-Step Portrait Finishing Techinque."
