A TAYLOR MADE BOOK


Finally my book have arrived after 13 days of wait!It was worthwile to wait for "The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers". It is not a book to teach digital photography or to explain every aspects of the Photoshop software. What the book does is to actually give the settings to use for every problem one find on the day to day.The book is for people "going digital" and who may not know anything about Photoshop, so, the author spell things like "Go under the Image menu, under Adjustments and choose Curves".Excellent value for money.Last, but not least, the plain-English used by the author and his sense of humor turn the things easier to understand for a Brazilian like me.

Poor, Poor Book on FCE2... Don't waste your money


Ok, I admit.... this book looked really cool at first glance (the chapter on the Brady Bunch theme showed promise), but when I actually got into the book, it was hard to follow, and I felt the author's bias shadowed over the book. He continually made reference to things he wished they had in the software that weren't there and other opinionated things like that. I really wanted to like this book because of the little movie talking about the differences between iMovie and FCE2. That was about the only thing that was valuable in this entire book. The video footage was unbearable. I wish it could have been better!

The worst-written technical book I've read


You may need to make a deal with the devil and buy this book, since it covers the material on the exam (and I liked it better than the even worse All-In-One guide with the gold hardcover). But it is terribly written. Ideas are presented so confusingly that you can usually recognize what the authors are trying to say _if_ you already understand it. Really awful.

Love your work


Without the benefit of experience, animation can be a hit-and-miss affair for even the most talented artists. This book goes a long way to show the CORRECT way to make a movie, not only for animation and not only for Flash, but these concepts could be applied to any film-making medium.
Finally got my copy in the mail today. I'm a full-time animator myself and I have great respect for the work of the authors Glenn and Kevin. This book is something I've been looking forward to for months now, and having flicked through it all day, I'm not a bit disappointed. Many laughs.. the occasional tear.. learned a [lot]. I'll be sure to mention you guys on Oscar night. I love my new book.
Friends of ED, well done on getting these guys on board. More from them please!!
