Remember those crazy mirrors at your local carnival or circus, the ones that distorted your body so many ways? That's the concept behind Playing in the Digital Funhouse, where you work with electronic tools that alter and distort graphics on screen just like those mirrors. Cuthbertson, the inventor of the program Digital Funhouse, explains how to use his program, which is included in a "lite" version on diskette with the book. The heart of the book is an explanation of the effects possible with the program, including ways in which you can bulge, swirl, melt, blur, and otherwise alter computer images. This title is basically a hard sell for a specific software package with not a lot of detail on the techniques of image manipulation. Look elsewhere for help on understanding the principles of this sort of graphical processing.
