From the Publisher:

Whether you are new to Photoshop and want to produce some startling and impressive effects quickly, or you are a professional designer looking for inspiration and ground-breaking techniques to push your work to a new level, this book is for you. We've teamed up with top professionals from Eyeland Studio to show you how the experts do it.

We've been ruthless while editing this book: any effects that didn't make the grade were cut. We wanted to have only the best in this compact volume - speed and efficiency were a criteria not just for the effects, but for the book as a whole. Every full color page is precious and we didn't want to waste a single one.

From the Introduction: As the Web has expanded the role of Photoshop beyond it's more traditional role in print design, designers are called upon more and more to turn an empty document into a visually compelling masterpiece in increasingly dwindling timeframes. In a world where our work can be published to the masses in the time it takes you to pour a cup of coffee, time is more and more of the essence.

Clients don't just want innovative and fresh visual effects - they also want them immediately. Third party plug-in filters are typically no help. It doesn't take very much time for their redundant usage to kill their effectiveness for that whole "fresh and innovative" criterion. It doesn't take a designer's trained eye to pick out the abuse of many popular 3rd party filters. We may only have a short time to make our effects, but we rarely want it to look like our effect was done in haste.
