Amazon.com Review
Some aspects of photography remain a constant. The human element has always been of greater relevance than the equipment being employed, no matter what the equipment. But the times they are a-changing, and the electronic manipulation of photographic images is a hot topic that is getting hotter. Norman Breslow, who has developed a series of computer programs for use in digital photography, provides an authoritative introduction to the subject. This lucid text covers computer basics, graphics boards, video input devices, scanners, software, and darkroom magic; it also includes a helpful glossary. The book should be updated regularly to keep pace with this fast-changing field.
