Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Classroom In A Book

When Adobe made Lightroom, they forgot to include the manual…or even any comprehensive offline help. However, they do publish an ‘official training workbook’, that is available as an optional extra. This does kind of beg the question, why can’t they just include its content in the Lightroom help menu, as doing so would offer a far better user experience. Whatever the answer, if you are serious about making Lightroom your photo editing and management software of choice, you’re going to need some help, because whilst, prima facie, it’s easy to used, like an iceberg, much of it’s might is buried, so this book comes highly recommended.

MC Rebbe reviews Home Networking For Dummies 4th Edition in The Technofile

Make no Mistake, Networking For Dummies will teach you everything you need to know about networking in clear simple terms, but if all you need to do is to connect together a couple of home (or even office) PCs, so that you can share files and maybe an internet connection or a printer, then it might be overkill, as you really don’t need to know how to create an intranet or have TCP/IP demystified.

Networking For Dummies 8th Edition reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe

Recently, I was chatting to my friend the Doctor (of computer science) and happened to mention that I’d just read Networking for Dummies. His response? “If you’ve read Networking For Dummies, you know more about networking than me,” which can only mean one of two things, either this book is excellent, or educational standards in this country have sunk even lower than I thought. If you want to find out which, read on. Continue reading »

Teach Yourself Visually Adobe Photoshop CS3 reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi

Photoshop may be the most powerful image manipulation application in the nation, but with its great power comes great learning curves…which certainly aren’t my favourite kind of curves…if you know what I mean…so something that enables you to get to grips with the uber app in days instead of weeks, is worth its weight in bagels and lox…and Teach Yourself Visually Adobe Photoshop CS3 is exactly that something!

Michael Langford Story of Photography reviewed in the Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi

Photography has been with us for longer than you might think. In 1800, or thereabouts, Thomas Wedgwood (of pottery fame) created the first photograms, by coating bits of leather with silver nitrate, putting leaves on top of them and exposing them to the sun. Unfortunately though, he lacked a way to permanently ‘fix’ his creations, which, as a result, could only be viewed in weak candlelight. Continue reading »

sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiWhen I first saw the title of this book, I was pretty sceptical. After all, I’ve seen numerous similarly titled books in the past, which promise to teach a complex technology in a short space of time and which generally fail to deliver. You know the ones I mean, you see them in the computer section of bookshops…each one is about one thousand pages long, packed full of dense text and entitled something like ‘Learn Oracle During Lunchtime’…or ‘Design and Build a Supercomputer in 3 and a half Minutes’. Fortunately though, unlike those others, this book actually succeeds in delivering on its promises. Continue reading »
