Site contributor Vincent Bockaert has today announced an all new version of his excellent 'The 123 of digital imaging Interactive Learning Suite'. This new revision moves 123di on to a new level with many more interactive tools such as calculators and visualisation tools, increased product coverage and better separation of learning levels; 'starter', 'essential' and 'advanced'. 123di is hugely comprehensive and covers almost every detail of digital cameras and digital imaging. I have no hesitiation in recommending it. At the same time as producing this new version of 123di Vincent has also been responsible for a complete re-write of our glossary.

Highly Integrated Content

Three Selectable User Levels

  1. Starter sections are like "executive summaries". These brief introductions with simplified and synthesized content are ideal if the user has little time and wants to keep it simple.
     
  2. The essential sections get the reader up to speed quickly and are a must read for beginners. But even for advanced users they are a nice refresher before diving into the advanced sections. The image editing tutorials in the essential sections are based on Adobe Photoshop Elements 2 and 3.
     
  3. The advanced sections build on the essential sections and are more in-depth and detailed, even technical at times. The image editing tutorials in the advanced sections are based on Adobe Photoshop 7 and CS.

Six Key Software Packages Covered
