The latest version of Vincent Bockaertâ€™s book, The 123 of digital imaging Interactive Learning Suite (now on Version 5.0) is out for distribution. At $50, itâ€™s the best photography guide available.
Itâ€™s for all levels of photographers; no matter what your experience, thereâ€™s always something you can learn from this interactive electronic book. It covers 153 topics in 4,200 pages â€“ generously illustrated with superb photographs and screenshots.
Depending on your experience, you can choose from 3 selectable user levels: Starter, Essential and Advanced. For those particularly new to photography, this is a treasure chest of knowledge. If this were printed, it could weigh a ton. But since itâ€™s on CD (you may also download it from their site), you can stash it in your notebook PC and have a ready reference when you need it.
The book covers all aspects of the digital imaging workflow, from understanding digital imaging and digital camera selection, to enhancing your images in the â€˜pixelroom,â€™ to managing, viewing, sharing and printing your images.
It also covers 10 key software packages so youâ€™ll understand them all. Adobe Photoshop Elements 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 Editor, Photoshop Elements 3, 4, 5 & 6 Organizer, Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2, CS3 & CS3 Extended, and Photoshop Lightroom are featured with animated tutorials and unique interactive graphical user interfaces.
How do I know itâ€™s the best? Phil Askey of DPReview.com â€“ the granddaddy of photo reviews â€“ says so. If Phil says so, I canâ€™t argue (Now, whereâ€™s my copy of this CD?).
