Digital Imaging for Photographers Reviews

Reviews of current edition:

'...packed with good quality technical explanation on the nuts and bolts of digital imaging. From how CCDs and pixels really work, colour and colour management issues. If there are aspects of digital imaging that you need to understand technically, this is the book for you.'
Better Digital

'This book discusses what a 'Digital Image' actually is, from terminology to the mechanics of image output. All explained in clear, non-technical jargon and illustrated by useful diagrams. I found it gave much more detail on topics such as resolution, file types, storage and compression. These are often neglected in similar publications, but are essential in understanding the digital process.'
John Shaw, Digital Photo and Practical Photographer

Reviews of previous editions:

'Whether you're just getting into digital imaging or a relatively old hand, this book is highly recommended.'
Professional Photographer.

'....aimed squarely at cutting through the jargon and explaining how it all works in a way that a computer rookie can understand... While mainly aimed at imaging novices, this book will fill in the knowledge gaps of many who are using imaging on a regular basis. I can strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the subject, whether beginner or accomplished user.'
Electronic Imaging Magazine.

'A book that delivers what it sets out to do - to introduce photographers to all aspects of electronic imaging technology. The CD-ROM contains a range of well-documented high quality images, provided copyright free - anyone thinking of a shopping list or wondering how good these cameras are is going to be very happy to see such a range. The CD alone is excellent value.'
Journal of Electronic Imaging.

"...we're treated to first-rate explantions of colour management, image compression and practical image output, all from the ground up."
Computer Arts Projects.
