  2. Greetings–

    Having never read #6, I’m curious about the sections that were eliminated in #7.
    I feel like I’ve missed something. What was deleted?

    Thank you,

    Mike Haley

  10. I’m coming back to serious photography after a lapse of almost 30 years; and, of course, loving it. I can’t believe how comprehensive and readable your Seventh Edition is; something for every photographer – beginner to professional. Together with Barbara Brundage’s book: “Photoshop Elements 11: The Missing Manual” I have enough valuable reading to keep me going for weeks and weeks.

    You may like to know that I found a minor typo on page 101 under “A Little Color Theory”. At the bottom of the first paragraph it reads “Maxell” rather than “Maxwell”.

    I’ve also tried to go to your CDP7 page but I’m getting “404 Error: Page Not Found” ;-).

    Best wishes, Neil from Sydney, Australia

  12. I have tried the suggestion at the end of the introduction to find the companion files and the link – – and the page doesn’t load. Can you direct me to these files?

  14. Russ: That’s very strange. You should get a message that it’s redirecting. See if you can get directly to the page it’s redirecting to:

  18. What a great book! I just finished it and must say it’s better than anything I have read about photography in years. The depth and breadth of this book is amazing. Thanks Ben.
