5.0 out of 5 stars Use in a Camera, 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got it for my Nikon digital camera and it seems to work giving me the ability to save 9k best quality images - more than enough!
For what it is worth, my small Nikon camera is very picky; some sd cards don't work at all. I think it is an issue with the physical size of the cards as opposed to their capacity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 9 July 2014

This review is from: Bleak House (Kindle Edition)
This is Dickens, the great social reformer, taking on the legal establishment of his time by pointing out its self-serving ways but wrapping it around a love story. There are lots of lovable characters as well.

There is little to be said except that it was not expensive; it was delivered quickly and coupled with some extra RAM and a new operating system my netbook has been revitalised

4.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all. That's what it is!, 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
GIMP is the best known and most fully featured open source editing programme for digital photographs and is highly recommended. It is a good book but, in my opinion, it is more suitable as a follow-on book rather than an introductory one. In particular, a lot of space is devoted to detailed examination of the menus of GIMP's multitude of editing tools. As I stand at this moment, the book is bit too advanced but if I progress (fond hope!), I expect that this book will become my principal helpmate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have Book for digital photographers, 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Digital photographers who want to progress beyond the scope of simple computer software for digital editing to that of highly advanced software should read this book; it describes simply and clearly in "tutorial-style" how to use the best known open source, multi-platform digital editing programme "GIMP". Many sample photographs are provided on the attached DVD for use in following the tutorials. The disk also contains the GIMP software and various extensions to it. Be aware, however, that as with all advanced software there is a "steep learning curve" so even with this book it will take a determined effort to become modestly proficient. Even so, I am sure that the book will be worthwhile.

Easy to setup using it's Cockpit tool and easy to add further units (I have 5). Gives very fast data transfer which makes it an ideal complement to BT Infinity for locations which cannot be connected directly to one's router by an ethernet cable

The TV series is superb so the DVD could not possibly fail: it has joined with similar DVDs of the 2 previous series and the Xmass edition in our collection of ll time greats. The diary was an instant hit with the females in the family and the onlllllllllll question was "Who shall have it?"

5.0 out of 5 stars TEX, LYX and LATEX: Upgrade your word processor, 5 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To those of your readership who know what Latex is, it is sufficient to say that this is one of the 2 standard works on the subject and well worth reading. The other is called "The Latex Companion" and is on my list for purchasing next.

The remainder of the review is for those who have never come across Latex and should be read by aspiring engineers and scientists and by typists who want high standards of output. Conventional word processors such as those in MS Office and Libre Office are "jacks of all trades ...." and are sufficient for many uses but they are not suitable for documents with complicated formulae eg mathematical, chemical or engineering. The answer is to use TEX. This is a typesetting program but it needs too much technical expertise for mortals. However, help is at hand in the shape of Latex which is an enormous collection of mini-programs based on TEX which make life easier. Lyx is a "document processor" based on Latex but its use needs some knowledge of Latex. Whilst my requirement is for maths, I quickly came to think that Latex was OK for normal use because the resulting documents look so much better on the page. Indeed, I have heard that the secretaries in a major academic institution voluntarily switched over all of their work to Latex based documents.

2.0 out of 5 stars When is a Novice not a Beginner?, 12 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A previous reviewer gave this book a very high rating: I cannot do that. Whilst I am not a complete beginner to programming, I found the book to be more demanding than I wanted. I have struggled painfully about halfway through it. I am making some progress but I intend to try "The Dummies Guide.."
