Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you like things visual, and you’re into the media side of Windows XP, you’ll really appreciate Teach Yourself VISUALLY Windows XP, Special Media Edition.

Sherry Kinkoph organizes Windows’ media features into nearly 140 bite-size tasks. Using digital cameras and scanners. Creating screen savers, backgrounds, print and Web photo albums. Burning videos to CD. Adding effects in Windows Movie Maker. Capturing DVD still frames with Windows Media Player. Listening to Internet radio. Playing multiplayer games.

Each task gets its own full-color page (in some cases, two or four), complete with a series of screen captures that show you exactly what to do, and what happens when you do it. Just look up what you want to accomplish, follow the step-by-step instructions, and you’re there. Bill Camarda

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2003 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks for Dummies, Second Edition.
