Digital Photojournalism is the first textbook dedicated to instruction and theory of digital processes and tools for the study of photojournalism. Currently, the best-selling photojournalism textbooks provide only a chapter or two on digital issues and technology; Digital Photojournalism is an entire book on the subject. Co-authored by a photojournalism professor at the University of North Texas and an Assistant Managing Editor of Visuals for The Dallas Morning News, the text merges two worlds of photojournalism - the academic and the professional - and incorporates the information essential to both. The book covers current practices in the professional field such as transmitting and archiving - information that photojournalism students will need to know as they pursue careers in the field. Legal and ethical issues are also discussed. Instruction is geared toward Macintosh users, although reference is made when various file formats and steps apply for cross-platform use. The book will be updated continually on the Web site at www.ablongman.com/zavoina.
