Es vermittelt die nötigen Kenntnisse, um mit Photoshop, verschiedenen Raw-Konvertern und weiteren nützlichen Werkzeugen die Arbeit in der digitalen Dunkelkammer sicher und effizient zu erledigen.

Die Autoren stellen verschiedene Vorgehensweisen dar und erörtern gleichzeitig jeden einzelnen Schritt und mögliche Alternativen. Dabei kommen auch wichtige, aber häufig ungeliebte Themen wie Bildorganisation und Datensicherung nicht zu kurz.
Darüber hinaus gehen die Autoren auf die heute verfügbaren professionellen All-in-One-Lösungen wie etwa Apple Aperture und Lightroom ein und erläutern deren Einsatzmöglichkeiten und Vorteile im Foto-Workflow. Sinnvolle Plug-ins und andere Hilfsmittel für den Arbeitsablauf werden ebenso beschrieben wie Multishot-Techniken (Panoramen, Focus-Stacking, HDRI).
Das Buch zeigt Schritt für Schritt und damit für den Leser intestine nachvollziehbar den Weg des Bildes aus der Kamera bis hin zum fertigen perfekten Print. Dazu gibt es eine Fülle von Tipps, Hintergrundinformationen und ergänzenden Hinweisen.
Die 2., überarbeitete Auflage berücksichtigt die neuesten Programmversionen wie Photoshop CS5, Lightroom three und weitere Programm-Updates.
