Re: Where to buy Modern Photoshop Color Workflow in 2021

David Riecks


I'm not seeing it on Ebay or Abe Books, but it's predecessor, "Professional Photoshop" is still showing on Ebay. 

As an alternative, for those family members who are interested in dipping their toes into learning color correction, many of Dan's articles that eventually became chapters in these books started out as part of his "Makeready" column that appeared in Electronic Publishing and others. I still have mine, three-hole punched in a binder, but have begun linking to the PDF's that can be found in:

The Makeready Article archive

Perennial favorites, like "Color by the Numbers", "Colors, Curves, and Horsetrading", "The Case of the Counterfeit Color" and my personal favorite "Sharpening With a Stiletto" are available for download at no cost.

This might be enough to get some of them started if they can't find a copy of the book new (or used).

Hi all, it is hardly surprising that that MPCW has both sold out and become rare and impossible to find.

Luckily I have my own well-worn copy. However after singing its praises to a couple of interested family members I'm now coping with their disappointment as they find it impossible to buy. Even worse I'm now having to beat back requests to (if you can imagine such an outrage) borrow my copy.

I doubt that anyone but an unaware retail shop would actually sell a copy they had in their possession, but if anyone knows of such a place and is willing to share I'd be most appreciative.
