Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

You held off on moving to Mac OS X until your bread-and-butter applications made the jump, and now you're thinking of moving up to Tiger. This book is especially geared toward designers who've become comfortable working under Mac OS X and are ready now to make the Tiger transition. Designer and prepress pro Jeff Gamet focuses on the Mac OS X Tiger features that matter most to illustrators, designers, and other graphic professionals. He explains not only how things work in Mac OS X Tiger, but how Tiger enables users to work efficiently and effectively. In chapters devoted to fonts, printing, PDF, color management, networking, the Mac's built-in design tools, and much more, readers will learn how to:
* Solve the nitty-gritty issues designers confront daily
* Improve production workflow and avoid common problems
* Optimize, maintain, and secure your network, whether you work in a complex office environment or a small graphics studio

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I considered myself pretty familiar with my Mac. This book has taught me all those things I didn't know; And things I didn't know I knew. Just poking around my Mac, I've seen a lot of the extras Apple includes for the artistic user. The Mac has been a design tool since it's birth and Apple caters to that by putting many useful mini programs, accessories and utilities in to enhance the design performance.

I've seen some of those tools, used some and merely stared at others. That's where this book comes in. The author clearly lays out the what and how of all those tools. So every time I read a new section, I learn something about a tool I'm familiar with or am introduced to something I didn't know. This book is well organized and easy to understand. It's been well worth the price.
