            Photo Printing provides easy to follow, expert advice on how to create long-lasting, great-looking prints. Thanks to the convenience of cameraphones and the many fun ways to share digital images, most photos now are viewed only on computers, TV screens or portable devices. Most o...f the images shared through social media are ephemeral; taken, posted and forgotten. And while our best photos can stand out on a back-lit screen, none of the digital display options has the lasting impact of a high-quality print. Photo Printing teaches you the basics of how to choose the right printer and paper, set up the printer driver, and how to balance colours and tones. The book guides you through colour management, soft proofing, and how to control the differences between how an image appears on a screen and when it's output to paper; all you need to make high-quality colour and monochrome prints.

            Could the most photographed and picture-taking generation the world has ever seen end up having little or no photographic record? Taking photos has never been easier, and most of us have a camera with us everywhere we go. Yearly exposures are measured in the trillions. Many - per...haps the majority - of those digital images aren't worth much more than a quick glance and the delete button. Others are 'keepers' - for as many reasons as there are picture-takers. And many of these will only become more valuable over time. This guide is for that vast majority of picture-takers who want to ensure that they can easily find and share those valuable photographic memories, but frankly don't know where to start. We have attempted to keep it simple, affordable and achievable. Most readers will be able to get started using existing software tools on their home computers. We emphasise that managing an image collection actually starts even before you press the shutter button. We embrace the printed image as a valid 'storage medium'. We've avoided being overly prescriptive, on the reasoning that every photo collection is different, there is no perfect system and anyway, the perfect is usually the enemy of the achievable. This is not a learned treatise on archiving, workflow enhancement strategies and digital asset management best practice, but a simple guide 'for the rest of us' on how to bring a little order to the chaos that is the average 21st Century photo collection. We hope it works for you!

            First published in 2001, this volume demonstrates how computer-based learning has the potential to provide a highly motivating learning experience, that it also has the potential to achieve exactly the opposite, and that the difference between these two extremes is the quality of... the learning design. The challenge for the learning designer isn't a simple one. You are being asked to prepare interactive learning for someone you can't see and with whom the only interaction you are likely to have is via limited written communication. Fortunately help is at hand in Alan Clarke's Designing Computer-Based Learning Materials. Dr. Clarke offers a definitive guide to each of the many elements involved in good design. This book explores the principles of adult learning, and relates to the potential, features and impact of computer-based learning. This is not a 'how to...' book, but rather one seeking to help you understand the different elements which go into computer-based learning. If you are commissioning material, it will help you to understand the contractors' constraints. If you are designing materials yourself, it will allow you to avoid many of the errors it is all too easy to make when developing them. Computer-based learning materials are not all the same: their range reflects the variety of learners that use them and purposes they are used for; the different learning environments that are available to people; the different subjects that they wish to learn and the level to which they wish to take them. In the face of such a complex task, involving so many factors and variables, it is essential that the learning designer understands what is involved and uses a rigorous process for envisioning, planning, designing, implementing and testing their solution. This is a book about learning design and not about software production and, as such, it provides any aspiring designers with the fundamentals of producing the highly motivating learning experience, which should be the

            First published in 1987, the seven chapters that comprise this book review contemporary work on the geometric side of robotics. The first chapter defines the fundamental goal of robotics in very broad terms and outlines a research agenda each of whose items constitutes a substant...ial area for further research. The second chapter presents recently developed techniques that have begun to address the geometric side of this research agenda and the third reviews several applied geometric ideas central to contemporary work on the problem of motion planning. The use of Voronoi diagrams, a theme opened in these chapters, is explored further later in the book. The fourth chapter develops a theme in computational geometry having obvious significance for the simplification of practical robotics problems - the approximation or decomposition of complex geometric objects into simple ones. The final chapters treat two examples of a class of geometric 'reconstruction' problem that have immediate application to computer-aided geometric design systems.

            This book, originally published in 1970, concerns the new technique of computer simulation in psychology at the time. Computer programs described include models of learning, problem-solving, pattern recognition, the use of language, and personality. More general topics are discus...sed including the evaluation of such models, the relation of the field to cybernetics, and the problem posed by consciousness. Today it can be read and enjoyed in its historical context.
