Review: Adobe Photoshop CS2

Adobe Photoshop CS2 is the latest release of Photoshop. The CS2 part can be slightly confusing, as the large software companies have realised that there's extra money to be made by bundling their software titles together, hence 'Adobe Creative Suite', 'Macromedia Studio', 'Microsoft Office' etc. As soon as the program starts though, you realise this is actually version 9.

My own background is in building database driven websites. For years, I'd managed to leave the graphical side of things to graphic designers, but there's only so much pestering for GIFs they'll take before advising you (politely) to do them yourself. As such, I got myself a copy of Photoshop 6 and haven't upgraded until now.


Book Review: JavaScript -The Definitive Guide

As the owner of over 50 IT related books, I've come to realise that the majority will fit into one of three categories:

  1. Beginners Guides These are for people new to the specific subject, and are there to get them up to speed quickly. They're usually first spotted by the traditional 'Hello World' example, although some will start off with the very basics and give you a history on computing.
  2. Cook Books These books are for people with plenty of experience in the subject, but are just too lazy to figure out things from scratch. As such, they are invaluable. They provide solutions to common problems, so the weary programmer doesn't have to re-invent the wheel.
  3. Reference Books The goal here is too document every single feature of the subject.

It's this last category that JavaScript — The Definitive Guide (JSTDG) very definitely comes under.
