The Best in its Class

We've used this text since the 1st edition in ART 250 Intro to Digital Practices at the University at Buffalo. It is simply the best, most comprehensive volume covering all the major applications we use in class. Just the right amount of background theory, coupled with good technical foundations, and exercises sprinkled throughout that students can tackle at their own pace. The 2nd edition did grow long in the tooth, and we tried a couple other texts, but they all fell short -- either too technical or too deep in theory. The authors are very receptive to feedback, and they were able to convince the publishers that a 3rd Edition was needed. It is the best edition yet.
When is a new version coming out?!?

I use this book to teach computer graphics I, but I think the reference is getting dated. They need to release a newer version to match the current software.
