Bert Monroy: Photorealistic Techniques with Photoshop and Illustrator

This book offers unique insight into how a master of the craft uses his tools. Monroy's techniques, culled from 20 years of digital image-making, demonstrate the breadth of 3-D photorealistic results that can be achieved using 2-D illustrative tools.

This oversize paperback features useful techniques from real-world projects. In many cases, we get to see the progress of an image, starting with the most basic elements: the sketch in Adobe Illustrator. From there, Monroy takes the Illustrator image into Photoshop for finishing.


Photoshop Channel CHOPS

Co-written with Nathan Moody and David Biedny, this book deals with aspects of Photoshop not covered in any other book. It has been heralded as one of the most important volumes on Photoshop that must be included on a Photoshop professional's bookcase.


Photoshop 4

This book was co-authored with Kaizu Yoshinori on Photoshop version 4.0. It was published in Japan by AOSTO/BNN. It appeared only in Japanese. It is no longer available.



Adobe Photoshop A Visual Guide to the Mac

Co-authored with David Biedny, this book was a step-by-step guide to using the features of Photoshop 3.0. It was published in many languages throughout the world. Strangely enough, it can still be found on store book shelves every now and then.


Adobe Photoshop Handbook

Mark Siprut was added to the team for this update of the original.


The Official Adobe Photoshop Handbook

This was the first book ever written on Photoshop. It was the only book for almost two years. David Biedny and Bert Monroy were able to compile the information due to the fact that they were working with Photoshop before Adobe purchased it from the Knoll brothers. Though it was written for version 1.2, release was held to coincide with the release of version 2.0. The first chapter covered the features of the new version.
