Valuable and comprehensive
This book provides very readable and very exhaustive coverage of many issues related to digital photography. It is not really a beginner's guide that explains how to use a digital camera (how to compose a photo, etc.). Serious photographers, as well as graphic artists, printers, etc. will greatly appreciate the extensive coverage of issues such as how digital cameras work; their advantages and problems; relationship of their output sizes to output sizes of film cameras (that is, aspect ratios), color management; Photoshop; output devices; types of scanners; and many other issues. I have studied these issues elsewhere and found this book added to my understanding. It provides a great foundation (and serves as a great reference) to help one intelligently consume additional information found in other books and magazines. The information is such that it will not be outdated quickly; nonetheless, I will look forward to successive editions.

Understanding Digital Photography--Two thumbs up!
Understanding Digital Photography is a straightforward, easy-to-understand book that explores digital photography in an easy to understand way. Great book for those moving into digital photography, or those who just want to learn more about the digital darkroom. Also has a great chapter about copyright.
