Take Control News/03-Apr-06

"Macworld Digital Photography Superguide" Released -- Our latest ebook is a bit different from anything we've done in the past, and in fact, it's not even a Take Control ebook! Instead, it was written by our friends (some of whom also write for Take Control) at Macworld Magazine. Called the Macworld Digital Photography Superguide, it's a 102-page collection of the best of Macworld's coverage of the wide world of digital photography. In 21 detailed sections, you'll learn how to take great shots, make them even better with image-editing tools ranging from iPhoto to Adobe Photoshop, move them to something you can hold in your hand, and protect them against mishap.

Now, you might be wondering why we're selling an ebook from Macworld rather than writing our own. Quite simply, they did a great job, and we couldn't see any reason to duplicate their effort when we could work together instead.

The Macworld Digital Photography Superguide features a sleek full-color layout, lots of illustrative photos, and the features you expect from a good ebook, including internal links, bookmarks, and links to referenced Web sites. But what really matters is the content, and that's where it especially shines - we're sure you'll learn a lot! (We encourage you to download the free 15-page sample to see what it looks like and how it prints, since it is rather different from our Take Control design.)

We're selling the ebook by itself, or in a special bundle with our 107-page Take Control of Buying a Digital Camera (discounted 25 percent), which gives you an in-depth discussion of the process of purchasing a digital camera, in classic Take Control style.
