Excellent overview of digital photography issues!
This is really a book for the beginner or intermediate photographer just hopping into digital photography - not for the professional looking for the latest technical improvements in the industry. This book helps you get your act together and make the plunge into this new and fast growing technology. Even the most knowledegeable amateur can pick up some new tips - Greg pointed out some basics like keeping your best pics as "read-only" files. File organization, how to buy a camera, managing and storing files, turning digital images into print, and just plain basic computer management of the whole digital photography process is what this book is all about. Many of us need to read this before we get embroiled in the techy issues of this new industry.

More Than a Beginner's Book
This book is a truly wonderful source of ideas, and a wonderful source of information on some of the programs a digital photographer might want or need. I'm not at all new to digital photography but I learned a great deal from the book, and got several invaluable ideas from it. I was also reminded of several programs which will make digital photography easier and more fun for me, my family, and my friends. If every definition isn't precise, if every single idea doesn't appeal to every sinlge reader, that's not the point. The immense value of this book is that anyone with an open mind *will* learn from it and will find at least several ideas she/he wants to incorporate into their own experience. It's one of the very best digital photography books I've read.

I bought this book based on the glowing Amazon reviews. I started with the book's basic definitions. The book says that "A pixel is the smallest unit used to make an image on a computer." Used by whom? I skip to Dots per inch (dpi) and find "dpi is a simple term than tends to be confused with image size. Dots per inch is an important characteristic of both output and input devices." I still have no idea what the author is talking about and go to the referred image size and find "Image size is usually expressed in terms of inches or pixels." I hope the books gets better because it can't get worse. ... Jim Hagan
