1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with this book, April 1 2008
By 
Robert Prior (Richmond Hill, Ontario Canada) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this book hoping to learn useful tips for scanning my collection of old family slides. I was very disappointed. There was little information that wasn't in the documentation included with the software, and many of the 'tips' were extremely obvious. For example, we learn that the ROC (Recovery Of Colour) function recovers the colour from faded slides. True, it does--''and the documentation for Nikon Scan tells you that, as well!

The software included in the book, at least for Macintosh owners, doesn't quite live up to what is stated inside. You get a licensed version of Vuescan, a copy of Silverfast (which I didn't check), and a demo version of Photoshop CS2 which can't be loaded because the .dmg file contains no mountable file systems.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is the horrible book, March 9 2011
This review is from: Scanning Negatives and Slides: Digitizing Your Photographic Archives (Paperback)
Most likely the worst book I ever read about anything to do with photography. I'm not sure who needs this kind of book. It's even less informative than manufacturers manuals. Number or useful information you are going to find this book is 0.0 regardless of your level of knowledge. Hopeless!!
I give it one star because you have to rate it somehow with out having option for negative stars
