About the Author

David D. Busch has been demystifying arcane computer and imaging technology since the early 1980s. However, he had a successful career as a professional photographer for a decade before he sat down at the keyboard of his first personal computer. Busch has worked as a newspaper photographer, done commercial studio and portrait work, shot weddings, and roved the United States and Europe as a photojournalist. His articles on photography and image editing have appeared in magazines as diverse as Popular Photography and Imaging , Petersen’s PhotoGraphic , The Rangefinder , and The Professional Photographer , as well as computer magazines such as Macworld and Computer Shopper . He’s currently reviewing digital cameras for CNet.

Busch has written more than 70 books since 1983, including the mega-bestsellers Digital Photography All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies and The Hewlett-Packard Scanner Handbook . Other recent books include Digital Photography Solutions and Mastering Digital Scanning with Slides, Film, and Transparencies , both from Muska & Lipman/Course Technology. This is his seventh book on digital photography.

He earned top category honors in the Computer Press Awards the first two years they were given (for Sorry About The Explosion , Prentice-Hall, and Secrets of MacWrite, MacPaint and MacDraw , Little, Brown), and later served as Master of Ceremonies for the awards.

Contributor Bio:

Technical Editor Michael D. Sullivan added a great deal to this book in addition to checking all the text for technical accuracy. A veteran photographer (in the military sense of the word!), he contributed some of the best images in this book, and volunteered his expertise in Mac OS X for important behind-the-scenes testing of software and hardware.

Mike began his photo career in high school, where he first learned the craft and amazed his classmates by having Monday morning coverage of Saturday’s big game pictured on the school bulletin board. Sullivan pursued his interest in photography into the U.S. Navy, graduating in the top ten of his photo-school class. Following Navy photo assignments in Bermuda and Arizona, he earned a B.A. degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College.

He became publicity coordinator for Eastman Kodak Company’s largest division where he directed the press introduction of the company’s major consumer products and guided their continuing promotion. Following a 25-year stint with Kodak, Sullivan pursued a second career with a PR agency as a writer-photographer covering technical imaging subjects and producing articles that appeared in leading trade publications. In recent years, Sullivan has used his imaging expertise as a technical editor, specializing in digital imaging and photographic subjects, for top-selling books.
