by Ernest Perez
Longtime news librarian Ernest Perez (Houston Chronicle, Chicago Sun-Times) showcases the best of easy-to-use, free, and inexpensive software products for retouching, restoring, and manipulating digital photo images. Digital Photo Magic is designed for librarians, educators, curators, and archivists who want to enhance photographic images without the steep costs and learning curves associated with high-end graphic software packages such as Adobe Photoshop.
Whether for use online or in print-based collections, exhibits, and archives, you'll learn to easily bring images up to acceptable quality without wasting time or money. Perez provides step-by-step guidance for a range of programs he has personally vetted, highlighting their best features and offering tips and shortcuts you can put to immediate use. A primer on graphic image formats, a guide to image scanning tools and techniques, and an extensive listing of specialized websites, blogs, user forums, and other author-recommended resources are also included.
