Ulead's PhotoImpact suite, a cost-effective graphics and photo-editing package, wraps a number of web-specific and advanced tools into its new version. This guide for beginning to intermediate users covers the basics: creating and editing text, adding special effects, enhancing and editing photos, optimizing images for the web, and using GIF Animator 5. While more use of color would have been helpful in a book on graphics software, the content is solid. The CD-ROM includes a 30-day software trial. Recommended for public libraries.
