Reviews of books, training manuals, and training CDs or videos is a useful service.

The goal of our web site is to assist new users into digital imaging, and to raise users into intermediate capabilities en route to being capable of professional quality digital work. Whether in desktop publishing, in-house publishing, graphics design studios, or a personal after-hours and weekend interest, digital imaging hardware and software can be intimidating.

Since it takes a few weeks between the time we decide which titles to feature and the moment that the publisher actually sends a review copy to us, it is more effective to list the upcoming titles now. This way you can go out and buy them right away. After all, we would not list them here if we had not already checked them out.
