About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Authors who attempt to help you learn sophisticated systems face a real dilemma: make a book too simple and it lacks value and misses the mark; try to cover everything and the reader may get lost in the minutia. This has a further ironic twist with the Mac OS which has been widely touted as being "easy to use" and "just works," yet in reality when applied to a complex enterprise like professional imaging it quickly becomes very complex indeed due to the plethora of diverse tools and processes within the imaging workflow. Developing a scheme for covering a complex topic that ties it together and helps retain the reader's interest is very important, and this is a sterling example of how to do it well.
This book's author, Rod Wynne-Powell, is an accomplished professional photographer, imaging hardware/software expert, process consultant/trainer with extensive involvement as an alpha tester for Adobe Photoshop, and has some of the best credentials in the industry. His method here is to use the digital photographic process -- from capture to output -- as the framework for the book and then overlay it with the discussion of OS X and all the hardware and software that relates with and contributes to it while creating images. The result is a really fine piece of work -- the most timely, purposeful, and complete collection of this kind I've seen.Read more ›
