Product description

Amazon Review

Dan Gookin explains the latest consumer trend in personal computers in Digital Scanning and Photography: specifically, how to choose, buy, configure, and use scanners and digital cameras. The book addresses both Microsoft Windows and Mac OS, and general information (what resolution is) intermingles with specific instructions (how to resize an image under Adobe PhotoDeluxe). The illustrator of this book deserves great praise. The technical drawings, showcasing such details as where you plug cables into a scanner, are razor-sharp and almost photo-realistic. Maybe they are ink-enhanced photos--it's hard to tell, but in any case they're far better than the grainy photography that usually populates books with a hardware angle.

Gookin, a pioneer of the trend in light-hearted writing (DOS for Dummies), communicates lots of facts and well-reasoned opinions without being dull, and he's often downright funny. But sometimes this goes a bit too far, as when he remarks that all scanners should come with some kind of software that makes them go. "If you haven't found the scanner software," Gookin writes, "search the scanner box again." Okay, but less obvious advice would be to go to the scanner manufacturer's Web site to see if they make the software available for download there. --David Wall, Amazon.com

Topics covered:

  • Digital imaging for home and small-office users of scanners and digital cameras
  • Consumer information on equipment features and pricing
  • Instructions on hooking up a scanner
  • Information on alternative image file formats
  • Tricks for getting the effects you want with image-editing software
