Overview

Looking for a friendly, comprehensive primer on digital cameras that assumes you know next to nil about digital photography, yet manages not to treat you like a dummy? Look no further. In The Little Digital Camera Book, authors Cynthia Baron and Dan Peck help you go digital by providing a no-nonsense, jargon-free introduction to shooting, enhancing and sharing images from a digital camera.

The Little Digital Camera Book covers everything nonprofessional photographers need to know about purchasing the right digital camera, how to get the best image that the camera and image-editing software can provide, and how to share those images in print, email, and on the Web, as well as how to turn your photos into cards, calendars, and other projects. Baron and Peck begin with an easy, conversational explanation of what digital photography is and how it works. Then they discuss how to choose the right hardware, including cameras, accessories, and printers, and how to use some of the most common features found on digital cameras. Finally, they discuss how to use image-editing software to fix typical problems such as red eye, cropping, and color correction, and the different options out there for sharing digital images. Reading The Little Digital Camera Book is like having a friend at your side to answer all your questions—you'll be teaching everyone else you know the ins and outs of digital photography in no time!

The Little Digital Camera book covers the gamut of your needs: How to use your camera; share pictures with friends and family; organize and protect your digital files; find a photo editor that suits your skill level and needs; along with digital photo creative projects. The writing is thorough, clear and informative, without being overwhelming. Thankfully, the content is truly cross-platform, viable for both Mac and PC owners. Overall, excellent value for your money.

This is a great book for people who only have rudimentary knowledge of digital cameras. I wish I' d had this book when I bought my camera two years ago. It has answered so many questions that I had about both taking photos on a digital camera, and then editing them on the computer and using online. Highly recommended! This will make a great holiday gift!
