Amazon is telling me that my copy will arrive around September 11 to September 12... I suppose it takes a bit of time crossing the Atlantic, from the states to Spain...

Maybe the paddles (for the crossing) are back-ordered.   Wink

Well, the books are printed in the good old USA (at least the English version) so those book get shipped from Indiana (where one of the Courier facilities are located). I've actually visited the printer for a press proofing the first time I did a Real World Camera Raw update (for Photoshop CS3).

Since then my books have been printed without my attending the press proof because, well, I've gotten really good at preparing the images in my books for CMYK repro...

(hint, I use PhotoKit Sharpening 2 for halftone output for all the figures in the book with screenshot upsampled 200% using Nearest Neighbor then doing a dual separation with normal GCR and a Max K sep). Kinda geeky...sorry!

So, if the books started in Indiana (where my books are printed), they would be trucked to the coast, then loaded into a container, then a container ship and shipped to Europe...so it takes a while to get overseas...

I received my copy yesterday. Awesome book! Wonderful follow up to the Digital Negative. If you are on the fence about getting this, stop and order it now.

I received my copy from Amazon.com today and highly recommend the book. Good job, Jeff! The illustrations are well chosen and are of excellent quality. The section on color management is very good and IMHO not too geeky. One thing to nitpick: page 21-illuminate is a transitive verb and the noun is illuminant as in Illuminant A.

I'll have to yell at my copy editor!

I've actually caught some stupid typos myself...because of the book's delay, things got really tight for time at the end and some stuff got through that shouldn't have...no excuses, just an explanation :~)

But thanks for the kind words...

Mine showed up on Friday Aug 2, I had a quick look before bed last night & it looks pretty good. I'll delve into it further during the week. I do have to say this, the section on color is above my pay grade  Shocked

My copy arrived August 1st also.  I had forgotten I had pre-ordered back in February.  So far have read about 40 pages.  Very interesting and informative.  Jeff, well done.

Got my copy yesterday,... and today finishing up on Chapter 2. Believe it or not ,.. but I really found Chapter One very informative,... as I can better decide/confirm which type of printer to save up for and buy.

Thanks Jeff , and glad you spent the time in "writing book hell", and got the book written.

This book is easy for beginners or for those already using Photoshop and LR?
Again, Photoshop CC is mentioned and in comparison to CS6 ?

Easy?

Well...the book presumes a degree of understanding of Lightroom / ACR & Photoshop...the screenshots are based on LR 5 & Photoshop CC but would work ok for Photoshop CS6 as well...

The book is not designed for beginners of Lightroom and Photoshop...but you'll learn what you need to learn to print. If you are a newbie to LR or PS, there are better books that cover the basics.
