Just as an aside I see no problem with presenting publications in different forms of media, including digital, at all. I just see those options as complimentary to "real books" and not as an absolute replacement.

Well, I've seen my books on Kindle and iBook and they don't look very good...the only ebook version I've seen that I like is the PDF version on an iPad (either size looks good) The original page design remains as do figure placement...with the EPUB & MOBI versions, everything gets reflowed based on font size and page designed goes right out the window. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't sell the PDF ebook, just the Kindle version so people need to go to Peachpit to get the rights managed PDF version.

That's a pity too! In my case I went with the paper version.

I really enjoy using old primes on my m4/3 camera. There's something about having to choose your aperture and actually focusing your camera that makes it so much more like... like... PHOTOGRAPHY!

Is that THE copy that's on Amazon for $599.90? I'll have to wait for the 2nd edition ;D.

Yep, that's the one...sadly, I don't think I would get a royalty beyond the actual list price :~(

So, I would suggest waiting till they are in stock in the regular Amazon store.

Then I will wait and buy it later, but I will buy it. I always enjoy your books - and learn stuff, too!  ;)

I cancelled my pre-order with Amazon for the paperback version and purchased (for one price) the three ebook formats from Peachtree.  I have loaded all three on my Android tablet (Samsung), the pdf, epub and mobi (Kindle) versions, and thus have the option of selecting in each instance of my particular consultation need which one may better serve my immediate purpose.   A bit of overkill, perhaps, but so what!  Now to get on with my reading -- and hopefully benefiting -- from Jeff's latest advice.

Jeff - Do you ever anticipate updating the Real World Camera Raw with Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Real World Image Sharpening with Adobe Photoshop, Camera Raw, and Lightroom books that you co-authored with Bruce Fraser? Or, do you feel that this information is covered effectively in your new books?

How much of the book contents are likely to prove irrelevant to me as a result?

Some...but not a lot. The book on Amazon has the Look Inside enabled so you can look at the table of contents. In terms of general things like color management and printers, papers and workflow, that's pretty application agnostic. But in terms of soft proofing, and tone/color correction and printing, that's pretty much application specific.

No plans on updating those titles...and yes, between The Digital Neg and The Digital Print, I think it's all pretty much there in the new books.

I would rather see a book comparing all sharpening techniques and tools, not just Adobe products. Sharpening can be overwhelming with all the different plug-ins (Topaz, Nik, PKS, etc.) and secret recipes (deconvolution vs USM, highlight/shadow sharpening, etc) out there. Would be nice if someone boiled it all down so one can make an informed choice on which tool/method works best and when. Of course, I doubt Adobe would commission Schewe to author a book such as this. And I don't know what noncompetition agreements Schewe is bound to.

Adobe has never commissioned me to write a book...I write about Adobe software because that's what I know really well. And, I have no noncompete contracts with anybody but my publishers about the specific book I write. And, truth be told, I don't use those 3rd party products because I don't need them...and I would have zero interest in doing that sort of book anyway.

I think he confused you with Michael, because your shirts are so similar on the LuLa videos.   ;)

Heaven forbid...I even tried to talk Mike into wearing a Hawaiian shirt for the LR5 video...he said no. Wimp! (Canadian)

Jeff:

Just finished reading the book.  I have consumed a lot of your insight through the various videos you participated in from LULA as well as your other posts and writings, and I have a collection of books going back to the mid '60's from other photographers, but this volume - coupled with The Digital Negative - will become the bible for digital processing.  Yes, the early chapter on color management got a bit geeky, but, I also learned / understood more than I had. Great job!

Well, I had a hard time trying to find the sweet-spot between too much geek and too little. I know that the first part of the chapter when talking about color was inspired by Bruce Fraser's Real World Color Management writing but I don't think I equaled Bruce's ability to make the complex, simple :~(

On the other hand, I did give fair warning in the beginning that it was gonna get geeky and to skip it if it got to be too much :~)

But thanks for the feedback and kind words...I appreciate it.

Amazon informs me that my copy has been sent.  I guess they are coming out a tad earlier than thought.
