Start with a Scan: A Guide to Transforming Scanned Photos and Objects Into High Quality Art
Start With a Scan, Second Edition is the long-awaited, updated edition of the best-selling guide on how to transform raw, scanned images into attractive, finished illustrations. Filled with hundreds of brand-new illustrations and two new chapters, this book is a visual stimulus, filled with plenty of design ideas and images to get readers started. The book starts by covering the technical basics of scanning, and provides the information needed to get images out of the computer and onto the printed page. But the rest of the book shows how to scan almost anything (burlap, clip art, family photographs, found objects) to create a quality piece of artwork. Readers will learn how to create textures and backgrounds, transform photos into graphics, and work with type. In this edition, two new chapters discuss scanning images for the Web and using scanned images in arts and crafts projects. This is an excellent resource for scanner users who want to focus on illustrative techniques rather than technical issues.
