My new book, 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques, started shipping in mid-October 2007. It can be found here on Amazon.com. A few of my favorite books can be found below, and for more book reviews, as well as some downloadable color test images, visit my resources page here.
‘Mastering Digital Printing 2nd Edition’ by Harald Johnson: Excellent resource for anyone interested in learning about the many facets of digital output, including history, important terms & concepts, and step-by-step real world instruction, written in a clear and well organized way. The 2nd Edition has a lot of updated and new content.
‘Digital Printing Start-Up Guide’ also by Harald Johnson: I would consider this book a “light” version of “Mastering Digital Printing 2nd Edition.” There is still a lot of excellent content for all levels of users, though I would recommend Mastering Digital Printing 2nd Edition for most people due to the small difference in price.
‘Photoshop Restoration & Retouching, Third Edition’ by Katrin Eisman and Wayne Palmer. This is the third edition of a great book by a wonderful teacher and retoucher. I haven’t seen the third edition yet, but I have the first and second, and look forward to the publication of this update. In her previous editions, Katrin covers the use of adjustment layers and other tools for improving a wide range of imagery, whether old, damaged and faded, or just in need of a little digital TLC. The first two editions are very well presented, and Katrin’s companion site, www.digitalretouch.org has downloadable files and added instruction for owners of her books.
