Mark Galer's and Les Horvat's new text is a must-have guide for every student needing to get to grips with digital imaging. They provide a comprehensive, practical guide to the entire digital chain, from capture - with coverage of digital cameras and help on which one to choose, to output - with extensive information on image adjustment and colour management. This is far more than a Photoshop manual; it builds your competence to deal with potentially confusing areas such as resolution and the control over tonality of colour. Put into practice the skills learnt by completing creative assignments and practical activities.
