This book is heavily illustrated and covers 500-600 terms. Definitions will vary in length from a sentence to several pages. A small portion of the definitions will be must-know computer terms, which the Grottas clearly define and illustrate for their unique readership. The bulk of the book, however, will focus on words germane to digital imaging, such as scanner, gamma curve, etc. This book is suitable for both advanced and novice readers.
