CALIBRATE YOUR MONITOR!
In order to get the most out of
the illustrations in this book—and in order to make sure that
others see your photos the
way you see them on your computer—you need to make sure your monitor
is properly calibrated. The calibration key below provides a
quick way to assess your monitor's calibration. If any of the
gray bars have a red/green/blue color cast, or if any two bars appear
indistinct (particularly bars #1 and #2), then you need to calibrate
your monitor. Section 14.1.2 will tell you how.
The web edition is currently at 16
chapters, comprising 97 sections and 266,588 words,
with 662 illustrations. When printed in 12-point font it
comes to 926 pages. Monthly page views for 2010 are shown
below. The 2011 stats
continue this upward trend. Monthly page views in 2011 for the
table of contents alone were around 3000.
Many readers have asked—and
continue to ask—when a print edition will become
available. Unfortunately, due to the extreme length (900+ pages),
publishing this work as a full-color print edition is simply not
economically feasible. The author is familiar with
self-publishing options such as Lulu and Blurb (which have their own
shortcomings, particularly in cost and printing quality). The
advantage of web publishing over print, however, is that the web
version can be updated and corrected as needed. For that reason,
the author has opted not to produce a print edition.
In response to the many requests
for an e-book version, the author is currently preparing a PDF version
which hopefully will be available very soon.
