2.0 out of 5 stars Not that impressed, 15 Jan 2010
I went for this one because it is the Adobe book but I was disappointed. The first 60 pages are pretty much adverts for the different programs, singing their praises and going on about their innovative new bits and pieces but not telling you how to do anything. The rest of it is a series of tutorials which show you how to make an unlikely looking multi-media ad campaign for an iffy looking retro movie. I wanted a handbook that tells me how to do a slideshow, bish, bash bosh. Possibly unrealistic of me considering the complexity of the software but I was disappointed by this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful, 12 Aug 2005
Everything you ever wanted to know about every colour ever. Lots and lots of colour swatches and ideas about using colour in art. Masses and masses of information and ideas. A visual treat. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 12 Aug 2005
Stunning images that reward close study. Very unusual images made with very, very, very long exposures; some of a year and more. Fantastic stuff.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not all it's cracked up to be., 14 July 2005
I picked this up because it's the end of term, my brain isn't fully functional and I wanted an entertaining page turner. And I wanted to find out what all the fuss was about. I was massively disappointed. This is a truly terrible book. Amzingly so. The cliches and plain poor writing bring the story to a shuddering halt over and over as the eye panics and can't believe that that is quite what was written there. It;s like you are sub-editing it, as if you are the first person to read it and you are writng notes for the author. Can't really say that, Dan; you've used that cliche on the previous page twice already, Dan; this is just undigested research, Dan. And the story is absolute tosh from beginnig to end. Based on fact, my big toe! Wouldn't recommend it to anyone, at all, ever. Absolute twaddle.
