            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!

            Learning to code has never been easier than with this innovative visual guide to computer programming for beginners. Coding skills are in high demand and the need for programmers is still growing. However, taking the first steps in learning more about this complex subject may see...m daunting and many of us feel left behind by the coding revolution. By using a graphic method to break code into small chunks, this book brings essential skills within reach. Terms such as algorithm, variable, string, function, and loop are all explained. The book also looks at the main coding languages that are out there, outlining the main applications of each language, so you can choose the right language for you. Individual chapters explore different languages, with practical programming projects to show you how programming works. You'll learn to think like a programmer by breaking a problem down into parts, before turning those parts into lines of code. Short, easy-to-follow steps then show you, piece by piece, how to build a complete program. There are challenges for you to tackle to build your confidence before moving on. Written by a team of expert coders and coding teachers, the Beginner's Step-by-Step Coding Course is the ideal way to get to grips with coding.
