The screen figures are not lined up with their captions. They are all off by one figure. If you keep this in mind, you'll sail smoothly, but as long as Web page space doesn't cost much, the following are the screen figures in chapter 2, followed by what the captions should be:
Every figure from 2.9 to 2.27 has been flowed. The following are the figure numbers followed by the correct caption...
Fig 2.9: The plum and the duck chart images are not the same size...WAS NEVER a CAPTION.
Fig 2.9: should have caption from figure 2.10—You can copy the dimensions and resolution from an existing image and apply them to a different image.
Fig 2.10: should have caption from figure 2-11—If you cannot crop all of the image, reposition the crop marquee to center the visual elements you'll crop.
Fig 2.11: should have caption from figure 2-12—Get rid of the author's signature (trust me, it's worthless) and the background area by deleting the encompassed area to the background color of white.
Fig 2.12: should have caption from figure 2-13—The Unsharp Mask offers more options for specifying the amount of sharpening than any other sharpening filter Photoshop has.
Fig 2.13: should have caption from 2.14—If you crop to inches, you either specify a resolution to change the cropped image, or leave the field blank and create no image-file change. Using pixels as the unit of measurement, your crop will contain exactly the number of pixels specified—and this can blur an image.
Fig 2.14: should have caption from 2-15—Go way beyond simple oval and rectangular selections by combining, storing, rotating, and generally seizing some of the selection power that is in Photoshop.
Fig 2-15: should have caption from 2-16—When there's an active selection, holding Shift does not confine the selection to an equilateral one. Instead, the tool adds to the current selection in the image window.
Fig 2-16: should have caption of 2-17—Click on the icon on the palette to create a new channel—Alpha 1—and save your selection work.
Fig 2-17: should have caption 2-18—Holding Alt(Opt) subtracts an area from an existing selection.
Fig 2-18: should have caption 2-19—Add your squiggle shape to the molecule shape in the same alpha channel.
Fig 2-19: should have caption 2-20—A selection can be rotated and saved, and then used on an image area that has content.
Fig 2-20: should have caption 2-21—You know a selection tool is in Intersection mode when a tiny "x" appears next to the cursor.
Fig 2-21: should have caption 2-22—The higher the Feather amount, the more "in-between" pixels are selected; most pixels are partially selected, some are totally selected, and way outside the marquee, pixels are not selected at all.
Fig 2-22: should have caption 2-23—There will be times when you do not want an image to have a hard crop around its edges. The Feather option is an easy, effective way of softening the border of a picture.
Figure 2-23: should have caption 2-24—Use addition and subtraction modifiers and the two Rectangular and Elliptical Marquee tools to make a jigsaw puzzle piece.
Figure 2-24: should have caption 2-25—Send the visual contents of the marquee to a different layer by using the Layer Via Cut command on the context menu.
Figure 2-25: should have caption 2-26—By softly embossing the opaque areas on the layer, you create a 3D jigsaw piece.
Figure 2-26: should have caption 2-27—Complete the design by repeating steps 2-4 on other areas of the image.
Figure 2-27: should have caption 2-28—The action you programmed should look like this.
There is no Figure 2-28. The duck and plums picture is a mistake.
