1.0 out of 5 stars What a Load of Rubbish, 8 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Scanners For Dummies (Paperback)
This book is complete rubbish. I've had to give 1 star, but it doesn't even rate that. The author knows little about the subject. For starters he even gets the terminology wrong: have you ever heard of spi (samples per inch)? Probably not. Well the author uses this instead of the conventional ppi (pixels per inch). He says you should use 8 bit sampling for line art. What? Line art is 1 bit: black and white, so guess what, you use 1 bit sampling. Everything about this book is is so wrong it's mind blowingly bad! It isn't even written very well, all over the place. If you really want to know about scanning then go to Wayne Fulton's website. Ths guy knows just about everything you need to know about scanning and a lot more too.
