Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Scanning Workshop is a project-based learning experience that teaches readers how to get the most out of their scanners. In addition, the book includes care and cleaning instructions and provides secret tips, such as how to scan Grandma's heirloom hand-painted china without any glare. The book is closely tied to the software on the CD, Adobe's Photoshop Elements, so readers get a hands-on introduction to post-scanning image correction. Extra sidebars point out outstanding features in some of the most popular software distributed with scanners so readers can choose what will best suit their needs.

About the Author

Richard Romano has been involved in the graphic arts industry since before birth. Indeed, he spent a large percentage of his preteen and teen years rewriting press releases and doing manual paste up for his father's pioneering magazine TypeWorld, now called Electronic Publishing. Since 1995, he had been either a full-time or contributing editor to Micro Publishing News, a newsmonthly for electronic designers and print buyers, for which he had reviewed graphics hardware and software and wrote regular features and news stories on various graphic arts technologies. Before fleeing California in Fall 2000, he had been Micro Publishing News' managing editor. Micro Publishing News was discontinued in May 2001 after 12 years in business.

Romano currently is a writer and editor for TrendWatch Graphic Arts, a division of Cahners Business Information, for which he writes market research reports on various aspects of the graphic arts and printing industries. He also is executive editor of a brand-new publication he is helping launch called Cross Media, which will cover issues of interest to content creators seeking to publish in print, on the Web, on wireless devices and PDAs, and all sorts of other new media.

Romano is the co-editor, with his father Frank Romano, of The GATF Encyclopedia of Graphic Communications, a compendium of more than 10,000 graphic arts terms published in 1997 by the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation. As if that weren't enough, he also is the author of several books on graphics hardware and software, including Digital Photography Pocket Primer: Capturing and Optimizing Images for Print- and Web-Based Publishing, published in 2000 by Windsor Professional Information, and Sams Teach Yourself Adobe InDesign 1.5 in 24 Hours, published in significantly more than 24 hours by Sams Publishing, a division of Pearson Education. He also does freelance design and editorial work. He will even cook for you, if you're nice to him.

In the dim and distant past, he was an assistant editor at St. Martin's Press, a New York City-based trade book publishing house. He later became a research assistant to a columnist for Parade magazine.

He has vague recollections of having graduated from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications in 1989 with a B.S. in English and Writing for Telecommunications and has a certificate in Multimedia Production from New York University. He has no advanced degrees, but often does run a temperature. A former resident of such disparate places as Salem, NH; New York, NY; and Los Angeles, CA, he now lives in Saratoga Springs, NY. He also writes fiction and is involved with various community organizations, including the Saratoga Film Forum, the Home-Made Theater, and the Friends of the Saratoga Springs Public Library.

By A Customer on October 30, 2001
Format: Paperback
Rather than being one of those dry technical manuals, this book is very funny and easy to read. It is also very informative. The book has helped me meet my scanning needs. I hope that the author continues to write a series of books on computer peripheral equipment.
