Book Review
It isn't easy finding a job these days and for those working in the creative fields like graphic design, illustration, photography, filmmaking, and music, a digital portfolio is just the shiny object you need to catch the attention of a prospective employer. But you can't just slap a few files on a CD and call it a night.

Effective portfolios from various fields are analyzed, for example, one for an industrial designer or a flash animation artist. If you happen to do both or are...

Photoshop CS2 RAW : Using Adobe Camera Raw, Bridge, and Photoshop to Get the Most out of Your Digital Camera
Mikkel Aaland
0596008511
March 15, 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The RAW file format is the uncompressed data file captured by a digital camera's electronic sensor. When your camera saves an image in RAW format, settings like white balance, sharpening, contrast and saturation are not applied to the image but are saved instead in a separate header. Because RAW files remain virtually untouched by in-camera processing, they are essentially the digital equivalent to exposed but undeveloped film.

This makes RAW an increasingly popular format with amateur and professional digital photographers, because it affords greater flexibility and control during the editing process-if you know how to work with RAW files.

Most digital camera manufacturers supply their own software for converting RAW data, as do some third party vendors. Increasingly, however, the RAW converter of...

Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Classroom in a Book
Manufactured by Adobe Press
0321115627
June 2002
Paperback
·
 
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").

From Library Journal
A close relative of "distance learning," web-based training (WBT) offers a big advantage over its kin by allowing instructors to design with multiple media in an online environment so students can learn at their own pace and on their own time and still get help from almost any source that is connected to the net. This power comes at a cost; few actually understand how to integrate all of this media into an effective learning environment. Horton, president of William Horton Consulting and editor of The Web Page Design Cookbook, has written a book for the administrator and instructor trying to understand WBT at a very high level of thinkingAwhat it is, how to evaluate it, possible approaches and applications, organizing sequences, testing, collaborating, motivating, and the future. This is not, however, a technical...
