Typical dummies book. I got it from the library because I started playing with photoshop. I'm not sure who the audience is supposed to be, as the author takes a few pages convincing the reader to purchase a digital camera. (If one is interested in digital scrapbooking, it seems to follow one is also aware of the virtues of digital cameras...)It was not a complete loss, however, as I did pick up a few tidbits that I wouldn't have known otherwise.
