a most practical guide to using GIMP,
This review is from: Beginning GIMP: From Novice to Professional (Paperback)
This book is easy to read and for someone who knew something but not very much about imaging and image processing it answered loads of questions right away.
The thing that makes this book stand out as an excellent piece of work is that it is written from the perspective of "what do you want to do with your image?", "right, here's how you do it". So many technical manuals tell you _what_ a piece of software does but not _how_ to use the software to achieve to end result that you are after. This author avoids this trap and clearly explains how you set about each task.
It is illustrated in colour, which makes sense for a book about image processing.
