The Barnes & Noble Review
If you’re a pro or serious amateur photographer who’s plunging into digital, The Digital Photographer's Library brings together all the information you need in three exceptional books. In one package, you’ll get professional guidance on everything from picking digital cameras through sophisticated color management.

Get started with Mastering Digital Photography and Imaging, by Peter Burian, coauthor of the outstanding National Geographic Photography Field Guide. Burian doesn’t just explain all the fundamentals: He offers specific, detailed recommendations. (Which features should you look for in a compact digicam? Which format should you save your images in: RAW, JPG, or TIFF? What must you know to make exhibition-quality prints?)

Next, get down to business with image editing software -- specifically, Photoshop Elements 3. Yes, Elements: Release 3’s been pumped with with RAW support, 16-bit support, better batch processing, a new Lens Filter adjustment layer for traditional effects, and plenty more goodies for experienced photographers. Those folks couldn’t ask for a better guide than Mikkel Aaland, or a more attractive and welcoming book than his Photoshop Elements 3 Solutions -- one of the few Elements books targeted at pros and serious amateurs. (Check out the great tools on CD-ROM, too.)

Finally, get your color perfect with Color Confidence. If ever a subject needed demystification, it’s color management -- and this is the book to do it. Tim Grey’s step-by-step techniques and full-color examples address color settings, monitor profiling, scanning, digital capture, optimization, print and web output, even workflow.

Read these books, refer to them, treasure them: They’ll carry you to digital mastery in grand style. Bill Camarda, from the January 2005 Read Only
