|Mastering Photoshop CS3 for Print Design and Production

Lowest used price: $2.99
List price: $49.99
Author: Ted LoCascio
Unlike the early days of Photoshop, for several years now most Photoshop books have been aimed at photographers; there is a big hole on the bookstore shelf that needs to be filled by a Photoshop book that is geared specifically towards graphic design professionals and production artists. This core audience should not have to wade through useless chapters of content geared towards other users of the application, namely professional photographers, web designers, and video editors.
Mastering Photoshop for Print Design and Production sets graphic designers and production artists in the right direction when implementing the latest version of Photoshop into their everyday workflow. It demonstrates how to use Photoshop for all aspects of print, from simpler tasks such as basic color correction and masking, to more advanced tasks such as color management, utilizing layer comps, and troubleshooting and automating RGB-to-CMYK color conversion.
Entirely four-color throughout, Mastering Photoshop for Print Design and Production fulfills the promise of the Mastering series, to provide real-world skills to professionals and students. Like all Mastering books, this one includes:
- A "by pros for pros" approach: The author is an active professional working in graphic arts, layout, and design, writing for professionals who want to improve their skills or learn new skills.
- Real-world examples: Running throughout the text are examples of how the various skills are applied in scenarios faced by real practitioners.
- Skill-based teaching and hands-on exercises.
- Companion files for tutorials and projects are provided on the accompanying CD-ROM.
Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
|Nuevas Historias: Contemporary Photography from Spain
Lowest new price: $5.98
Lowest used price: $5.17
List price: $60.00
Author: Timothy Persons
Brand: Brand: Hatje Cantz
For years, contemporary photography and video art have played a substantial role in Spain's avant-garde culture. As curator Estelle af Malmborg writes in this volume, In just a few decades, a closed society, trapped in its past, has been transformed into a multifaceted country in which contemporary culture enjoys a strong position. Spanish photography does not shy away from the personal expression. We who lived in Spain in the 1980s experienced first-hand the major political, social and cultural changes. The sociocultural movement La Movida, with the film director Pedro Almodóvar as its front figure, released a wave of suppressed creativity and tested the boundaries of freedom. The explosive Spanish culture of the 1980s expressed itself in many ways, but a common feature was an interest in capturing the intellectual currents of the rest of Europe, while, at the same time, relating to one's own cultural heritage. This volume collects works addressing issues of cultural identity, heritage and history by 31 contemporary artists--including Ignasi Aballi, Sergio Belinchón, Carmen Calvo, Alicia Framis, Dionisio González, Ángel Marcos, Aitor Ortiz, Montserrat Soto and Valentin Vallhonrat.

|PC Hardware Annoyances: How to Fix the Most Annoying Things about Your Computer Hardware
Lowest new price: $16.03
Lowest used price: $0.10
List price: $24.95
Author: Stephen J. Bigelow
Operating a personal computer requires more than just dealing with the PC itself. As anyone with even a modicum of computer experience can attest, there are all types of hardware devices which you must become familiar with disk drives, printers, monitors, and sound cards, just to name a few. And, naturally, each is fraught with its own set of bugs and snares.PC Hardware Annoyances, the latest installment of O'Reilly's highly successful Annoyances series, aims to optimize these peripheral systems by offering easy fixes to their most annoying traits. With over 40 titles to his credit, author Stephen Bigelow identifies all those annoyances that make you cringe in frustration. Then, through the use of snappy, entertaining, and practical solutions, he shows you how to clear each obstacle one step at a time. After that, the rest is up to you.Designed for PC users of all levels, this handy guide doesn't bore you with long dissertations on the workings of the technology at hand. Instead, it offers straightforward, easy-to-understand troubleshooting solutions. For maximum ease of use, PC Hardware Annoyances is broken up into several broad hardware categories. They include desktops, laptops and PDAs, graphics, sound, hard drives, CD/DVD drives, network, and printers and scanners. And while you may not use each of these accessories currently, chances are it's only a matter of time before you'll need their technological services whether it's for work or recreation.What makes PC Hardware Annoyances especially timely is the growing trend among computer owners to simply upgrade their PCs as they age, rather than replacing them altogether. With peripheral devices becoming increasingly affordable, there's no reason not to. But as with any do-it-yourself project, trouble lurks around the corner if you don't have the right guide. Having difficulty setting up your color inkjet printer? Trying to burn a music CD? Is your modem misbehaving? The remedy: PC Hardware Annoyances, of course!
