This is a great book - successfully demisting the art of design. I work with highly creative designers and have always been a little in awe of their talent. However, having picked up this book, I now realise that everything is at the end of a mouse click. It's really helped to put into perspective what can be achieved for even the most basic of users. The book neatly progresses though every application of the programme, using small tutorials to build up your skills.
It could benefit from having a glossary and a quick reference section (summarising how to use each design tool) but hey ho...p'haps they'll include this in the next issue.
There are one or two screen/command refs that didn't reflect the GIMP program, but there is a website where such errors are updated.
I urge you to buy this - the software is legal and free to download and the joy from creating your own design is immeasurable.
