"With this new book everyone can learn how to use all of [that] data to do the same thing. It has very easy to follow instructions, and it takes all of the mystery out of the Raw process. Everything is fully illustrated to make it even easier to see what it all means as you go step by step through each chapter." - Apogee Photo Magazine, November 2006

This, however, is an exception to that statement.
What I need is books about the subject which are written by `VERY' knowledgeable people - not just those who have read a few books on the subject and believe themselves capable of educating the masses.
In am studying this subject as hard as I possibly can. I read an item - often several times until it sinks in, and then try and put that item into practise with both cameras and computer at hand - and I get very angry when it simply doesn't work.
This book is a revelation! The instructions and explanations are easy to follow and the graphics are superb. In short, it is easy to follow what the authors are trying (and - succeeding) to impart and all photographers will be richer for having studied this work.
RAW Workflow from Capture to Archives
By Philip Andrews, Yvonne J. Butler and Joe Farace
Raw Workflow from Capture to Archives really is a book for the reference section of any budding photographer. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced user of RAW files, this book caters for the entire gamut of skill levels within its covers. Information is made incredibly simple, due to its plethora of user friendly illustrations. The screen grabs and the professional photos aide to detail the ease in which you can maximize efficiency within your RAW workflow. The colour coordinated chapters make this book a brilliant reference tool.
The authors have not shown any bias towards a particular brand as they explore all available RAW conversion and management software available on the market, in both PC and MAC formats. As well as RAW, the book also explains other computer jargon that the digital photographer may come across. Such concepts as JPEG and TIFF files as well as USB vs. Firewire are explained, which is excellent for broadening the user's knowledge of their digital surroundings. If in doubt, the in depth glossary will explain all. Raw Workflow from Capture to Archives is sure to improve anyone's workflow efficiency and their understanding of RAW management.
