The following is an unsolicited review of The Color Scanning Handbook: Your Guide to Hewlett-Packard Scanjet Color Scanners, 1/e by Jerry Day.
Reviewer: Gary David Bouton. Gary wrote "Inside Photoshop 4." "Inside Extreme 3D," "Photoshop Filters and Effects," and several books on Corel DRAW for New Riders:
Jerry Day's "Color Scanning Handbook: Your Guide to HP Color Scanners" is a must-have resource for those who have purchased *any* brand of scanner. This comprehensive guide not only walks the reader through the basics--resolution, color gamut, color theory, TWAIN specifications, and more--but Jerry's intention is to integrate what you learn with goal-oriented work. What's a scanner good for? What are the optimal settings for scanning for the Web (and web offset)? Jerry's informal tone and energy clearly drive the points home, and make this excellent resource guide more than a handbook. It's darned good technical reading for anyone who wants to understand--and apply--some very well organized information.
