For all the work camera companies have put into making their cameras as easy to use as possible, many people still find the process of getting a good shot shrouded in mystery. Add in the camera capabilities of most modern smartphones, and it's easy to get quickly overwhelmed by all the possibilities. Enter Macworld's Digital Photography Superguide, fourth edition, for all your photographic needs.

While Macworld regularly features photography tips and how-to articles, we know that digging back through all of those stories can be a hassle, if not impossible.

For readers who want all the information in one place, we’re pleased to present our Digital Photography Superguide. In the fourth edition of our popular photography book, we offer the latest advice on buying a new camera; getting great shots; managing and editing your growing photo library with desktop applications like iPhoto '11, Aperture, and Photoshop Elements; and much more. We've even included a special section on iPhone photography for any budding iPhone-ographers out there. The information has been updated and expanded to cover all the latest developments in digital photography, and we've organized it in this easy-to-follow guide for beginners and pros alike.

In this 196-page book, you'll learn about the entire photography process: We'll walk you through purchasing the digital camera that's right for you; shooting in difficult situations; importing photos quickly and safely; managing your image collection by adding valuable information like names, locations, and ratings; and sharing your photographs with the world by taking advantage of both print products and online services. We'll also explain how to protect your photos from hard-drive disasters.

If you’ve been wishing you knew more about your camera, or you feel overwhelmed by your photo library and aren’t sure where to turn, this book can help.

The Digital Photography Superguide, fourth edition comes in three convenient formats—just choose the one that works best for you.
