Meet the Author

In 1985, Deke McClelland oversaw the implementation of the first Macintosh-based production department in Boulder, Colorado. He later graduated to be artistic director for Publishing Resources, one of the earliest all-PostScript service bureaus in the United States.
These days, Deke is the author of the best-selling computer titles Macworld Photoshop 5 Bible and Photoshop 3 For Windows 95 Bible (both published by IDG Books Worldwide), which have combined sales worldwide of more than 500,000 copies, making them the best-selling guides of any kind on computer graphics. Other best-selling titles include CorelDraw 8 For Dummies, PageMill 2 For Dummies (both IDG Books), and Real World Illustrator 7 (Peachpit Press). His newest title, Photoshop 4 Studio Secrets(IDG Books), chronicles the work of 16 of the world's most prominent computer artists.
When not writing books, Deke serves as contributing editor for Macworld and Publish magazines and hosts the cable TV computer series Digital Gurus (now in its fourth season). Deke has written more than 40 books and hundreds of magazine articles about graphics, electronic publishing, and multimedia. His work has been translated into more than 20 languages, including Portuguese, Slovenian, and Thai.
In 1989, Deke won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Computer Book. Since then, he has received honors from the Society for Technical Communication (1994), the American Society of Business Press Editors (1995), and the Computer Press Association (1990, 1992, 1994, and 1995). Other recent titles include FreeHand 8 Bible, Photoshop 5 For Macs For Dummies, and Web Design Studio Secrets (all published by IDG Books).

    5 Stars! Outstanding!!

    This book is short and concise. It takes you right to the heart of the program without all of the mumbo jumbo of most computer books. Even though I'm fairly computer literate, I find most manuals simply impossible to understand. Deke McClelland makes it fun and easy to master this very complicated but powerful program.
