Book Review
Each Classroom in a Book features consistently well-written and conceived lessons, part of Adobe's official training and certification program. They guarantee solid instruction, taking readers step-by-step through professional-level projects with topnotch artwork. Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Classroom in a Book book assumes no prior knowledge, and beginners will benefit from the slow and deliberate pacing. However, more experienced Photoshop users won't find it difficult to speed ahead through familiar material and there's a thorough index for troubleshooting specific problems. They'll find new techniques to make their workflow more efficient, and, perhaps, "unlearn" any bad habits (for example, getting a better grayscale conversion for a color photo by using the Channel Mixer rather than clicking "Mode > Grayscale").

Cascading Style Sheets : Designing for the Web (3rd Edition)

April 25, 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Cascading Style Sheets, Third Edition, Designing for the Web Since its introduction in 1996, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) has revolutionized web page design. Now, in 2004, most web pages use CSS, and many designers base their layouts entirely on CSS. To do so successfully requires a good understanding of how CSS works. The purpose of this book is to describe how designers can take full advantage of CSS 2.1, which is the newly released update of the specification. CSS s journey from an idea to a specification and then on to a specification designers can rely on has been long and arderous. The creator of the CSS Zen Garden (described in Chapter 12, "From HTML extenstions to CSS") describes it this way: Littering a dark and dreary road lay the past relics of browser-specific tags, incompatible DOMs, and broken...

From Library Journal
This is a rather humdrum lexicon of desktop publishing terms. Following on the heels of his Large Print Computer Dictionary (LJ 6/1/95), Spencer has churned out yet another reference work that appears to add little to the existing body of knowledge already published on this subject. The book contains roughly 1700 basic terms and acronyms used in desktop publishing but fails to include terminology about recent developments in online publishing. It ignores such terms as HTML (HyperText Markup Language) and SGML (Standard General Markup Language). The author intends for his audience to be comprised primarily of beginners who may need a dictionary like this for a basic reference. Clarity, authority, and precision are claimed to be keynote qualities of this work, which contains more than 265 line-drawn illustrations....
