About the Author
Ted Padova first began his interest in amateur photography as a Peace Corps volunteer in Venezuela. He toured five Latin American countries, collecting shoeboxes of slides he hopefully will one day sort out. Upon completion of his two–year Peace Corps tour, he attended the New York Institute of Photography in Manhattan when it was a resident school, earning a diploma in Commercial Photography. In 2004, he retired from his Digital Imaging Service Bureau and Custom Photo Finishing Lab after 15 years of owning and operating three facilities. He has authored over 25 computer books on Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, and Adobe Illustrator. Today, he spends his time writing and speaking nationally and internationally on Acrobat PDF and digital imaging. Don Mason is a graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. He has been a professional photographer for more than three decades and works in virtually every aspect of commercial photography. Don first started using a computer in 1999, when he didn’t believe that digital imaging would ever replace his wing lynch system used for processing all his E–6 film and his darkroom where he made his own C–prints. After 4 years of intensive work in Adobe Photoshop, he abandoned his analog film lab and went completely digital. Today, he divides his time shooting professional commercial photography and printing art prints for a wide range of clients on his two, oversized Epson inkjet printers.

Having found the "For Dummies" series of books very helpful in the past I tried this, but I must say I was disappointed.
The book spends three chapters explaining colour spaces and how to calibrate your monitor - just what I was looking for. Unfortunately it then spends five chapters on how to do basic photo editing using Photoshop Elements - a program I do not use. There are two further chapters covering colour printing and printer profiling and finally a chapter on "Ten Reasons to upgrade to Photoshop." which reads more like an Adobe sales pitch.
Overall I think about one third of the book gave me information I was looking for. If I'd wanted a book on Photoshop Elements, there are lots available and I was quite disappointed with the information presented here.
I'm sure there are better books on colour management available and I shall be looking for something more comprehensive and helpful than this.
