About the Author
Ted Padova first began his interest in amateur photography as a Peace Corps volunteer in Venezuela. He toured five Latin American countries, collecting shoeboxes of slides he hopefully will one day sort out. Upon completion of his two-year Peace Corps tour, he attended the New York Institute of Photography in Manhattan when it was a resident school, earning a diploma in Commercial Photography.
In 2004, he retired from his Digital Imaging Service Bureau and Custom Photo Finishing Lab after 15 years of owning and operating three facilities. He has authored over 25 computer books on Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, and Adobe Illustrator. Today, he spends his time writing and speaking nationally and internationally on Acrobat PDF and digital imaging.
Don Mason is a graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. He has been a professional photographer for more than three decades and works in virtually every aspect of commercial photography. Don first started using a computer in 1999, when he didn’t believe that digital imaging would ever replace his wing lynch system used for processing all his E-6 film and his darkroom where he made his own C-prints. After 4 years of intensive work in Adobe Photoshop, he abandoned his analog film lab and went completely digital. Today, he divides his time shooting professional commercial photography and printing art prints for a wide range of clients on his two, oversized Epson inkjet printers.
