Teach Yourself Digital Photography in 14 Days, a guide for Windows and Macintosh users, focuses on using digital cameras and image editors and teaches you everything you need to know to make the most of your digital camera and take good pictures. The first lessons explain how to use your camera's lens and exposure controls; how to create a good composition; and how to understand how color, tonality, and lighting will effect your photographs. The lesson on making the most of indoor and outdoor environments is especially helpful. Throughout these lessons, you get advice on creating photo essays, taking pictures of food, and working with such subjects as children and pets.

Next, you learn how to save and upload pictures. A considerable part of the book focuses on using Adobe Photoshop to edit your pictures, use image controls, apply filters, and create composite images. Finally, you learn how to output your work--whether you're placing your images in other documents, preparing them for the Web, printing them out, or using a service bureau--and how to sell your work. The book ends with a glossary of photography and computer terms and a buyer's guide to digital cameras. A full-color insert shows examples of various picture-taking and image-editing techniques.
