Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The title of this fine book may be a bit misleading, because one of the great advantages of digital photography is the elimination of darkroom drudgery, not to mention the nasty chemicals and often frustrating limitations of negatives and prints. However, one usually exchanges one set of challenges for another, and in fact digital images often require long hours of composition, cropping, and corrections. Cope thoroughly covers these computer chores in a logical, straightforward manner. The introductory chapters deal with digital photography in general and basic techniques of working with these images. Separate chapters discuss professional techniques, classic techniques, and creating a "digital darkroom," followed by a useful glossary, index, and bibliography. Generously illustrated, this is one of the best books published to date on this subject. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
