From the Author

Second edition expands, updates, and responds
We wrote a second edition in part because of support from our readers for it. You wanted more (and newer) information on color and color management, scanning images aimed for the World Wide Web, and stochastic screening, among other issues. We rewrote the book for up-to-the-minute explanations of the oldest and newest scanning and halftones technology and tips. Want to know how FlashPix works? See Chapter 4, File Formats. Need to modify CorelDraw for a custom screen? See Part 3, Applications. Readers at Amazon.com (see below) have noted they were waiting for a second edition - and it's here. We'd love to hear from you if you've read the book or just have questions. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
