Donald Hugh McClelland, Jr., known as Deke McClelland (born 1962), is an American author and expert in Adobe products, most notably Photoshop, but also Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop Elements.[1]

[Deke is] a seasoned professional, with more than 30 years of experience in the digital arts, and more than 80 video courses here at If that's not enough, I've written more books on Photoshop than anyone on the planet. Sounds like a big brag, but I've seriously written 40 books on Photoshop alone. That's 4-0, such a misspent youth. And that's not counting the couple of hundred foreign editions.

— Deke McClelland, describing himself., [2]
