Product Description

Review

Processing for Visual Artists: How to Create Expressive Images and Interactive Art teaches how to create imagery with the Processing graphics language, created for artists, designers or any using to create images and animation for arts or business purposes. It provides a project-based organization designed for artists and other types of visual thinkers, showing how to use Processing to create successful results. The step-by-step focus for each piece builds on knowledge and skills and makes for a fine pick for engaging artists who have Processing and want to make the most of it!
The Midwest Book Review, August 2011

The major contributions of this book are its uncompromising clarification of the creation of graphics using Processing and helping the reader to understand the principles underlying the language constructs to be used. … the book has much to offer to an experienced programmer. I highly recommend the book for those who already write code, but want to extend their knowledge, to clarify concepts, to clean up bad practices they acquired elsewhere, and to improve their understanding in a richer context. The book is excellent for turning a beginning programmer into a self-confident and well-equipped one, who can not only admire and adopt, but also design and create expressive images similar to the ones discussed in the book.
Journal of Mathematics and the Arts, August 2011

... quite accessible, using projects as platforms for teaching basics. A top pick, this includes color art image examples throughout.
The Midwest Book Review, January 2011

If you are a visual artist looking to take your work on a new path, Andrew Glassner's new book is an exciting and incredibly comprehensive guide to using Processing to create imagery with computation.
—Daniel Shiffman, September 2010

Really liked the style here. Non intimidating and very clear introduction to how to use a computer to create visual effects. I'd recommend to anyone with a pure arts background who wanted to come into the topic.

Only reason I dont give it a 5 is that if you have already done some programming then the explanations may be a bit long winded.

more than just Processing !! Oct. 11 2010
By jeffh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a great introduction to the Processing language. But it is much more than that. The author describes all the little decisions that a good programmer makes when writing a program. What is a good name for this variable? How will I test this function? What's the best way to exit this loop? I have never before seen a book that even mentions these tiny decisions that can make-or-break a program. Have a look for yourself. Each little step is clearly explained. Glassner shines a light that shows how real programmers think while they work. This is a terrific guide to programming that is useful for beginning programmers in any language.
