A quick flick through in the book shop and youd probably put this book straight back on the shelf - very few colour images and what appears to be a lack of tutorial info. Look a little closer and youll start to see fantastic selection of useful stuff - right from calibrating your system to effective ways of removing dust and scratches using Photoshop. The book leans towards users of Photoshop, but theres nuggets of info for anyone wanting to grasp digital imaging. And grasp is the key each chapter offers assignments and has a revision section at the end which sort of takes you back to school where you have to check your understanding at the end of each exercise. This is definitely a book for students or for the bloke who wants to impress everyone with his skills. Youll be fully conversant with scanning colour management and manipulation once youve worked through the book. Overall Id recommend the book if youre wanting to learn, but the images used as examples are geared more towards graphic designers rather than traditional photographers wanting to develop their skills into digital.
