"Here's How Hundreds of Photographers Just Like YOU Got Real Good at Photoshop, Real Fast!"
Amaze Your Friends and Family When You Create Gorgeous Photographs and Then Sell Them for BIG Profits!
From: Robert Schwarztrauber
Date: Friday 8:30 am
Regardless of whether you’re new to Photoshop, or an old pro, whether you own an older Photoshop version or are working in "The Cloud", you know Photoshop can be a bit unfriendly at times. (and that’s putting it nicely!)
But it’s also the best and most versatile software on the planet for creating fabulous photos from boring snapshots. So you are wise in putting forth the time and effort it takes to get good at using Photoshop.
Luckily, I developed an easy way to master this beast!
Use it, and you’ll be cranking out beautiful photo creations yourself in no time at all. Even if you’re brand new to Photoshop. I've helped folks from 8 to 80 quickly get good at Photoshop, so I'm betting I can help you too.
If you’re reading this page, chances are you’ve been frustrated by Photoshop, just like I was in the beginning. More likely, you’re beet-red-throw-the-computer-out-the-window mad at this stupid program!
It also means you’ve decided not to be beaten by a software that so many others have mastered to such great success. You’re willing to learn how to do it.
You know you can do it. You just need someone to help you get started. Someone to show you a few simple tips and tricks to set you on your way. Someone to give you that “Ah-Ha!” moment when it finally all clicks.
You’re right.You can do it! (I know anyone can if I did!)
"Taking time to learn Photoshop
was one of the best things I ever did for my photography."
"Your way of explaining things Bob, does more for me than all the videos." Bill T., Ontario, Canada
Once I could do a few common edits successfully, I quickly went from rookie photographer to posting award winning photos in international contests.
With Photoshop to back you up, you can be a little loose in your picture taking skills and still come off looking like a pro!
Like you, I started with no skills in Photoshop. In fact, the first three months I couldn’t even figure out how to open a photo to edit! Pathetic, right?
I would get so mad playing around, then just close it in disgust until I gathered the courage to try again a week or so later.
Then , in just one day, all that changed when I watched a video of this guy as he opened a photo and created a masterpiece. He gave me the key.
Step-by-step he showed me what I’d been missing all along. It finally clicked.
I was hooked!
But there was a problem…
Next thing I know, I’m spending hours and hours and hours watching videos on how to do Photoshop. Then I’d open my program and try to do what they did.
I’d be up until two in the morning and my wife was getting mad!
Sure I was learning, but it was taking much too long. There had to be a better way.
I figured out the biggest problem was I couldn’t remember all the steps the guy did in the video. I’d have to keep going back and rewinding and watching the same video over and over. That’s where I was wasting all my time.
So I devised a simple technique.
As I watched the videos, I’d write down all the steps the teacher was showing. They moved right along so I had to write fast. That was good because it forced me to write just the most important parts of what the guy was doing. Kind of like crib-notes or cheat sheets.
Next thing I knew I had a whole box of index cards I could refer to anytime I wanted to do something. Anytime I was stumped,
I’d just pull out the card I needed, follow the steps, and BINGO!
I’d be done in no time!
Funny thing is, once you get into Photoshop you find yourself doing the same common edits (techniques) over and over again. Once you get the steps down…
Photoshop becomes a breeze.
In no time at all I was submitting photos to contests and winning!
My photo buddies were impressed. But no one was more amazed than me.
Soon, everyone was asking how I changed so fast. When I told them about my cards, you guessed it, they all wanted a copy!
And they loved them.
“This is a great Photoshop shortcut,” they said. “You should sell these!”
Well, I had no intention of becoming a “Photoshop Guru”. Heck, I was just doing what I’d been shown to do. I was no pioneer.
But they convinced me to put the cards together in a package and sell them on the internet. It turned out they were right. I had underestimated how many people struggled with Photoshop like I did in the beginning.
Here I thought I was the only one.
I thought I was the dope...
...and now I’m the teacher!
Surprisingly, hundreds of these books were sold in no time at all.
Turns out, nearly everyone is looking for an easier way to tame the Photoshop Beast. We all want someone to just give us the steps to get the job done. (Wish I had them when I started!)
Reminds me of that old quote: “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.”
That’s all great, but when I sit down to edit a photo…I just want the darned fish! When I sit down to edit, I just want the steps to “Git-R-Done!” I don’t want to start learning. I don’t want to be taught, I want to do!
Now, you don’t have to spend hours watching and re-watching videos. You don’t have to read boring, thick, complicated manuals
You don’t have to fly off to some high-priced lecture, school, or convention. You don’t have to struggle trying to figure it out on your own either. I’m give’n you the whole darned fish!
“Photoshop Recipe Cards”
I got that name because once I’d assembled the cards in a pack, I thought, “Hey, these are just like recipe cards!”
No one goes to cooking school just to bake cookies right? We just follow the recipe.
We don’t need (or want) to sit for an hour watching a “How to Bake Cookies” video. We just need a plan. A little of this, a bit of that and we’re done! Mmmm…hot cookies!
We don’t want to learn Photoshop
…we just want to DO IT!
That’s the beauty of Photoshop Recipe Cards. Each card has just 5 to 7 simple steps that get you quickly from beginning to end.
Step-by-step instructions that take you quickly and easily from start to finish.
Easy to Follow - Photoshop Recipes
No Special Skills Needed!
Just follow the recipes!
Here are some of my favorite cards and what they do…
• How to magically straighten your photos, perfect every time! pg. 1
• How to make gorgeous (free!) frames for your photos– digitally! pg. 3
• Create that classic “Antique Photo ” look in just 3 simple steps! pg.13
• High-Key images…without an expensive studio set-up. pg. 18
• The trick to creating razor-sharp images …fast! pg. 24
• The pro’s secret to removing dark circles under beautiful eyes. pg. 39
• Can’t draw? So! Turn photos into money-making pencil sketches. pg. 45
• Turn scowls to smiles. No more ruined family portraits! pg. 17
• Look younger! How to remove wrinkles and creases fast! pg. 59
• Photos too light? Too dark? Just 2 clicks to the quick fix! pg. 58
"The cards arrived in sunny Australia safe and sound. Thanks very much. They are already speeding up my workflow!" Dave H. from Sydney, Australia
Turns frustration into fun!
Imagine your friends’ surprise when they see your first Photoshop Masterpiece!
You don’t have to be a frustrated artist anymore!
In no time at all, you can turn your so-so photos into award-winning, profit making art! Just like I did.
This winner I composed from two shots, the dancer, and my arm holding a brush.
Combine Two or More Photos Into One
I cut out the girl and her shadow from a parade photo, cut out my arm, and stuck them together with a bit of blue paint added. It really can be this simple!
Here’s a recent comment I got about my cutout technique from a retired service veteran who’s pursuing his 3rd career now, as a photographer:
“Received the Tip Cards and decided to use pg.12 for extract.
All one can say is “WOW” I was so impressed with that feature and the ease of use that I decided to change all the poor backgrounds in the Church Directory about (30 photos). It caused me more work but overall well worth the effort. Only 51 more cards to learn. Thanks again!” Tom Brayman, FL.
That’s only one example of a Photoshop “newbie” putting just one of my tips immediately to use. Not merely for his own personal art collection or amusement, but to re-do an entire church directory!
That’s the power of simplicity!
You don’t have to immediately sell your new creations, but you certainly could do that if you wanted to. Many folks have.
In fact, there are many ways you can use your new Photoshop skills for profit…
• Create ad photos and marketing promotions
• Create cards for school sports teams
• Start your own unique baby photography business
• Design scrapbooks for busy moms
• Restore old photographs to preserve precious family memories
• Create fabulous art to hang and sell in restaurants
• Create fabulous art to sell online or in galleries
• Teach your new Photoshop creative skills to local clubs
• Create calendars or other fun and promotional items to sell
on sites like Cafepress.com or for local businesses
• Design and sell your own line of specialty greeting cards

"Robert thanks so much for creating the "Photoshop Recipe Cards". I received them in the mail this afternoon, and have been trying them out all evening!

Beginners get a quick slide into mastery! And folks who already know Photoshop get an arsenal of quick reference tips to enhance and inspire their creativity.
There’s something for everyone.
Which reminds me…with so many versions of Photoshop out there, people often ask me if it works for their version.
And the answer is YES!
See, when I first started this adventure, I was using the earlier Photoshop 7. When I watched the videos, I would see all kinds of Photoshop versions being used. I had to adapt my notes, translate them into the most simple terms.
The result was nearly universal step-by-step techniques that anyone could use regardless of what Photoshop version they had.
From the early Photoshop 6 and 7 versions up to the new CS5 and 6 versions, even Elements users will find Photoshop Recipe Cards helpful.
You might find an occasion step substitution is needed to work on your version, but the overall techniques will work wonderfully on any system.
For example, the cards are based on Photoshop for Windows. If you have a Mac, you’ll substitute the Command key for the Windows Ctrl key. Nothing too complicated.
Windows or Mac, Elements or Photoshop CS5, beginner or pro, everyone will find the simple tips and tricks in this book well worth the small investment.
I recently updated the material in the book from what I learned as a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. So you know you’re getting great stuff!
In fact, those big shots charge hundreds of dollars for their courses and seminars. That’s great if you’re in the graphic arts business, but most of us are just hobbyists or small time photographers who simply want to improve our craft. We’re not designing brochures or ads for Madison Avenue or Hollywood movie trailers!
As I said earlier, I didn’t set out to be a Photoshop Guru . I just want to help folks get good using Photoshop. I just want to help folks avoid the struggle and frustration that plagued me at the beginning.
I just want folks to have an easier, faster way to just DO Photoshop instead of putting all that time into “learning”.
You will learn from my cards, but the right way, the best way… …you’ll learn by actually doing it!
So I’m not charging hundreds of dollars for these shortcuts. Though I could.
Even though I spent hundreds of hours watching the videos and reading the books—all the while taking page after page of notes, you’ll get the benefit of all that …without the hard work, time, or expense.
Remember in school how you had to sit through day after day of classes, everyone learning the same stuff? How great if one person had been elected to take all the notes and the rest of you could go to the beach!!!
Well, consider me that guy! Don’t worry, I enjoyed it. And I got the results I was after. And I’m happy to pass my notes to you so you can just get to it!
Take my notes and have fun with Photoshop.
Stop fighting with it!
I’m not charging $395 for my live seminar that you have to fly to. I’m not charging $97 for my 7 set DVD course that you’d have to load and watch over and over again to find what you’re looking for (you can find plenty of free videos tutorials on YouTube). I’m not even charging $59 for a loose leaf binder full of page after page of confusing text hoping to sell you on weight alone.
Instead, you’ll have the best, most useful, most concise, to-the-point, “meat and potatoes only” reference guide to Photoshop!
Over 100 tips, tricks and secret shortcuts packaged into a simple to use recipe card format. “Do this, do that, get great photos.” Couldn’t be more simple.
The pages are printed on real card stock for extra durability. All the pages are bound in a convenient, lay-flat comb binding so the pages stay open while you work. There’s even room to add your own helpful notes or favorite settings!
The table of contents lets you quickly find what you want to do, and turn right to the page. (Yes, it’s old-fashioned, but faster than any Google search you could do!)
- Everything about this book has been carefully designed to speed your workflow.
Don’t waste money on all those fancy courses. Don’t waste time trying to do it all yourself. Let Photoshop Recipe Cards help you cook up some great photos in no time at all!
