Not as easy as you might think!
on 25 August 2003
I like the fact that this book is broken up into bite size chunks - and the illustrations are good. My main problem with it is that he never really explains WHY you'd want to do something. 'Here's how to draw a line' 'Here's how to fill an image'... but why, what would that do for my picture? It's very theory driven, rather than results driven. This would be fine, I'm sure, if you already know a bit about digital images and paint shop, but for totally raw beginners like me, it leaves out some basics. It is helpful, and probably one of the best I've seen, but 'easy steps' is perhaps pushing it a bit!
