      5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money! 16 Nov 2001
      By A Customer
      Yes! A good buy as far as I am concerned. It's easy to follow, even if your like me and not too technically minded. Within 2 hours of receiving the book, I could do logo's that looked like some techy wizard had produced. And it's easy to use as a reference too.

      1.0 out of 5 stars Web Graphics Circa 1990s 14 Dec 2005
      By Scott Showalter - Published on
      Everything in this short Web graphics based book for GIMP showcases graphics that would have been used back in the 20th century. I get the feeling GIMP is a more powerful photo editing and manipulating program than it's Adobe rival Photoshop, especially a version from the 90s. This book was no help to me at all as a Web professional. It's a shame there isn't a lot of resources out there in book form for GIMP, as I do prefer reading from left to right (ie. reading a book), rather than up in a vertical direction (reading a screen). Look for the Official Handbook, and look for more books to be released in the future.

      I am sure the book was a good book at the time of its printing , but as new version emerge the book becomes somewhat useless.
