5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in every way, 25 July 2009
This book is excellent in every way.

It it very comprehensive - it covers many different aspects in depth, from the basic mathematics, representing shapes, techniques for accelerating the rendering process and camera models to sophisticated lighting models, sampling theory, textures, volume scattering and much more. It simply contains a wealth of information on almost every aspect of ray tracing.

But it's not only excellent because of the content; also the style in which it is written is very clear, and also the print quality of the book is exceptional - it's printed on high-quality glossy paper which makes it a pleasure to read.

If you're interested in ray tracing, you will certainly not regret buying this book, and it will keep you busy for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have book if you want to get the most out of Photoshop, 7 July 2007
This book is a must-have for photographers who want to use Photoshop CS3 and Bridge CS3. It contains a lot of information and goes into the details of configuring Photoshop, using Bridge, using Camera Raw, editing, retouching and fine-tuning photos, making selections, filters, colour management, printing and more.

Photoshop is a very powerful program with so many features that it can be hard to find out what the best way is to achieve what you want and this book helps me a lot to get the most out of Photoshop.

A DVD is included with the book with movies that show you how to do things, extra chapters that are not in the book, a bunch of example images and extra information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes Photoshop Elements much more useful, 30 Dec. 2003
This book shows what you can do with Photoshop Elements - it's much more than a dumbed down version of Photoshop. The CD that comes with the book contains the Hidden Power Tools, which adds a set of very useful tools like Curves, different colour separations etc., that are normally only available in the full version of Photoshop, to Photoshop Elements. The book not only discusses the features of PS Elements and the tools, it also contains a lot of info about what you can do to improve your digital pictures. It also contains a section about vector graphics and creating graphics for websites.
This book is not for absolute beginners or people who just want to digitally improve their photos with a single button click. But if you want to get the best out of your photos and you're willing to invest some time in working with PS Elements, this book and the Hidden Power Tools are great.
