Overview

Digital photography is hot, and kids want to get in on the fun. This comprehensive instructional guide, created especially for youngsters, tells them exactly what they need to know to capture those birthday parties, school events, sleepovers, and family vacations. Every important question gets an easy-to-understand answer: What’s a pixel? What is resolution and why does it matter? How can I make computers, scanners, and printers work with my camera? Children will get creative with software that alters and enhances images, and learn new ways to add text, adjust color and brightness, and change a background. Fifteen appealing projects, from turning snapshots into puzzles to crafting unique CD covers, photo magnets, and digital scrapbooks, make this a no-brainer for the budding photographer.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-This excellent guide is full of fun and functional activities that teach children how to select a camera, take beautiful, full-color photographs, and manipulate images. Bidner provides easy-to-follow steps for various projects that will assist readers as they learn to use a flash, how to focus the camera, to download images onto a computer, to crop photos, to design an image Web site, and much, much more. The book is filled with visual examples and dozens of photographs. Imaging terminology, such as jpeg and resolution, is defined within the text and supported with a glossary. This is the best how-to book available on digital imaging for this audience.-Jodi Kearns, University of Akron, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
