Help with a pinch of humour
on 19 January 2008
I've had Manga Studio Debut since Christmas and I've been feeling my way with it. While I love the program, I found that the instruction manual (which is in pdf format) isn't that intuitive, so I pre-ordered Manga Studio for Dummies. After a first read through, I can see that it's going to be really useful. It gives great hints and tips and explains how to use all of the tools in a really easy to understand way. There are several tools that I was obviously using wrong!
This book is well laid out, thoughtfully written and very humorous in places. It also comes with a cd, which has a trial version of Manga Studio EX and some other goodies, including bonus chapters. The book is a step by step guide to using Manga Studio (both versions) from the ground up and it's a bonus that it includes information on both the Mac and PC versions (with the caveat that the author uses PCs, not Macs!), meaning that users of both platforms will get good use out of this book. The screenshots and illustrations are clear and very useful, as are the list of tens at the back!
If you have the program, I'd really recommend getting this book to help you get the most out of Manga Studio.
