Overview

This is a complete introduction to digital imaging for photographers that will also appeal to photo-illustrators and graphic arts professionals. It introduces the technologies involved in a non-scientific way - showing how digital processes can be used alongside traditional techniques.

From image capture through to manipulation and output, the book takes you step by step through the processes involved in digital imaging. Everything you need to know is here: from the necessary hardware and software involved, an overview of digital cameras on offer, film scanners, storing and compressing files, the "digital darkroom" - image processing with examples from Adobe Photoshop, colour management techniques, output issues, transmitting images over the web and a whole lot more! A section on ethics and copyright issues associated with digital imaging is also included.

Adrian Davies is Senior Lecturer in Digital Imaging at the North East Surrey College of Technology. He is consultant on the subject, writes regularly for magazines and speaks at conference/exhibitions and roadshows organised by manufacturers.
