Bring Your CAD Drawings to Life Using Artistic Photoshop Techniques

Most architects find that traditional CAD drawings are not the ideal medium for sharing their visions with clients. For an untrained eye, it's difficult to imagine a complex design by simply viewing a line drawing. Fortunately, you can use Adobe Photoshop to enliven CAD drawings and improve graphical communications.

Enhancing CAD Drawings with Photoshop is the first book to demonstrate how you can use Photoshop to transform CAD drawings into dynamic, attractive presentational pieces that speak to everyone. First, you'll master the basic Photoshop concepts and tools. Then you delve into sophisticated illustrating and compositing techniques. Practical tutorials lead you step-by-step through each process, and a full-color insert featuring before-and-after images is certain to inspire you with ideas and solutions. While appealing to the artist in you, this unique book will empower you to win bids and wow clients.

Inside, you'll learn how to:
  • Plan your work flow to ensure consistent color printing
  • Work in the digital darkroom and hone your retouching skills
  • Extract entourage objects from photographs and use them in architectural illustrations, renderings, plans, and elevations
  • Enhance your line drawings with color, pattern, gradient, transparency, and shadows
  • Dress up basic elevations using Photoshop's layer style effects, reflection and refraction, and entourage
  • Transfer 3D objects from Autodesk VIZ into image layers in Photoshop
  • Make objects look realistic using layers and clipping groups
  • Transform 3D models into pencil sketches, watercolors, and paintings
  • Share your digital work with your clients via prints, e-mail, the Web, and slideshows
  • Protect and catalog your intellectual property

Fiber-Optic Communication Systems
Fiber-Optic Communication Systems
Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1992, the state of the art of fiber-optic communication systems has advanced dramatically despite the relatively short period of only 10 years between the first and third editions. For example, the highest capacity of commercial fiber-optic links available in 1992 was only 2.5 Gb/s. A mere...
