Today's software packages and, more specifically, their user manuals have become huge and complex, making them daunting prospects for beginners or those in need of a refresher course. Now Mark Gatter presents a groundbreaking book, aimed primarily at new graphic designers and students, which imparts the essential basics that professionals will need on a day-to-day basis to run seven major graphics and web-design programs used the world over. Each chapter familiarizes the user with the screen, menus, windows, tools, navigation system and basic procedures specific to each piece of software.
There is a logical flow of information and methods, complimented by colour illustrations, which enables the learner to start using the program immediately, regardless of the version they have installed. All instructions are provided in both Mac and PC format. Avoiding the need to purchase numerous books on each individual program, this is the "Swiss army knife" of software reference books.
