Most books are targeted at particular pieces of equipment or programs, which is fine so long as you don’t change your gear or programs.

54 THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT PHOTO EDITING PROGRAMS

This e-book fills the gap, you will find out exactly what it is that photo editing programs do and how they go about it. All the jargon will be revealed, the controls will make sense and you will be able to move from digital confusion to digital control.
This is a great e-book to read before you try reading the programs help files, it is easy to understand and will demystify the whole concept of photo editing regardless of what program you are using.
