Digital imaging has revolutionized the world of visual arts more dramatically than anything since the invention of the camera. Digital illustration and computerized manipulation of photographs have become the mark of quality in magazines, movie posters, and advertisements. Until recently, the equipment needed to produce such superb results cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Now, affordable prices and easy accessibility have made digital imaging possible for almost everyone involved in visual communications. Photographers, artists, and illustrators need all the help they can get sorting through the techno-babble and salesmanship surrounding this important new technology, and they should find it in "Digital Imaging". This sourcebook aims to ease the visual artist's transition to computerized media, exploring all the technical, financial, legal and ethical issues readers need to understand. Filled with advice from leading experts in the field, "Digital Imaging" provides a vital overview of terms and concepts, professional techniques, computer hardware and software, and sources of information and assistance.

In Digital Imaging for Visual Artists , a husband-and-wife team has created an imposing volume filled with a vast amount of useful knowledge concerning the relatively new discipline of digital imaging. Their book manages to be readable and approachable while considering such disparate and difficult concepts as the basics of digital electronics, the physics of color, and the choice of a reliable printer (mechanical or human). At its most basic, this title serves as a guide for working visual artists interested in the available options for enhancing and creating work electronically, as well as a clear outline of marketplace realities and emerging electronic imperatives. The scope of coverage is impressive. This is a very useful reference for collections with an interest in the graphic arts or computer technology. Dynamic Computer Design , a more modest book, is no less useful in its own way. Characterized by a clear, crisp layout, this volume presents 20 examples of various projects created using microcomputers. Each project is described in enough detail to make it clear how the effects were accomplished, and a sidebar at the beginning of each example gives particulars of the hardware and software used. Software screens are reproduced in key areas to show exactly how the particular tool was used by the designer. This makes a nice complement to some of the material in the Grotta book. Recommended for graphic arts collections.

Digital manipulation of photographic images and illustrations has become so commonplace that it is now the norm rather than the exception in commercial publications. This large volume is designed to help artists who are not computer literate make the transition from traditional media to the digital arena. The authors describe the computer as a technological tool with capabilities bounded only by the imagination of the artist. They provide detailed discussions of digital (filmless) cameras, scanners, film recorders, illustration and page layout software, and electronic prepress methods. Other, broader topics involving complete systems (both PC and Mac) are covered in surprising depth; a full discussion of virtually every hardware peripheral is included. Although specific technical information is sometimes lacking ("ask your service bureau" is the advice given), most graphic artists and desktop publishers will find this a very thorough resource.
