Meet the Author

William Harrel has nearly 25 years of digital design experience. He was one of the pioneers of publishing on desktop computers, starting with the very first digital design and graphics programs, PageMaker and Photoshop. Like so many of the early "desktop publishers," with the emergence of the World Wide Web, he found that making the transition to web design was the next logical step. His design fi rm has designed hundreds of websites, Flash websites, and electronic documents. His earlier books on Photoshop, PageMaker, and digital media in general were some of the fi rst publications on these topics.
William Harrel has authored or coauthored 19 books on designing both print media and electronic documents, such as websites, PDFs, Flash sites and Flash applications, slide and multimedia presentations, on computers. These include titles on Photoshop, Acrobat (Acrobat For Dummies), PageMaker, Flash, Director, and several other graphics and publishing packages.
