About the Author

About the Author Drawing and art have been a part of Deborah Miller's life since the beginning. Very few surfaces have been sacred or safe. She's drawn on everything from toilet paper (it wasn't cushy soft in those days) and redwood boards to drum skins and virtual paper on the computer. Since her first professional show at age 12, she's been the recipient of numerous art awards in a career that has spanned well over 30 years. Trained in the traditional tools of drawing boards and airbrushes, she moved to computers several years ago, during the days of programming sprites in basic. Today her tools are far more sophisticated, as she explores the worlds of CorelDRAW, 3D animation, the Web, and multimedia development. Coauthor and author of several books on computer graphics, and illustrator of anything that does not move fast enough, her goal is to make graphics software understandable. She believes that users should not have to be techie wizards to create computer graphics. Having escaped the city, she resides in the hills of Tennessee with her husband, Mike, her family, and an assortment of cats, dogs, and a wolf. When she's not working, she can be found haunting the Internet.

1.0 out of 5 stars TERRIBLE May 23 2002
Format:Paperback
This book is terrible! The procedures are incorrect for CorelDraw 9.0. I never used CorelDraw so I was not familiar with the program. The author would give you step-by step instructions that do not exist in CorelDraw 9.0 software.
The Natural Pen is an example of a tool that I was trying to find but came to realize that it is not in the software. Also, the Dockers Menu is another example of a mistake. The author tells you were to find the Dockers Menu but my software does not show that menu. After playing around and asking for help in the program, I came to realize that I had to ADD the Dockers Menu. But she doesn't tell you that, you have to figure it out while scratching your head. I waste more time trying to figure out her instructions then to understand the program. I had such a hard time. I lost the book but will not buy it again. I will look for another book to buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars I only wish I had read the reviews before I bought it May 25 2000
By Sarah Yarnold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is terrible. It describes procedures that are incorrect for CorelDraw 9. I understand from other reviews (read only after I had struggled to find tools listed in the book but apparently nonexistant in the software)that instructions are based on older versions of CorelDraw. Having only used version 6 I was eager to learn about the new tools and their uses. The author describes reducing nodes by using a button called "auto-reduce" - doesn't exist in Corel 9. Use the "Natural Pen" - doesn't exist either, now called Artistic Mode. I am only 200 pages in but now realize it was a waste of money as the instructions are completely irrelevant for version 9. Please read reviews before dishing out big bucks on outdated computer books. Good ones exist, this just isn't one of them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this book March 19 2000
By arcaterra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I made the mistake of buying this book. It is a fast and I imagine cheap update of the Corel Draw 8 Bible. The chapters have been minimally edited so that it refers to outmoded Corel 8 entities that are not in Corel 9, for example the Natural Pen vs the Artistic Media tool. I can't return the book because I made the mistake of opening the CD. I wish I could. The book is a waste. Buy something else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Jan. 9 2002
By Josimars - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is good book especially if you are serious about Corel Draw. Yes it includes a couple of mistakes like refering to the Artistic Tool as Natural Pen but if you have any sense of reasoning or logic whatsoever it is a no brainer it took me 2 mins to figure it out.
