"Very few authors have the ability to discuss complex subjects with clear, open, readable style; Ken Milburn does that very well indeed. Much more than a rehash of a Photoshop owner's manual, this book provides a well-crafted roadmap for creating and delivering a large number of very high quality digital images quickly and professionally. For the serious hobbyist or pro looking to streamline his or her digital photographic work methods, this book is highly recommended. "

"Are you a photographer who is serious about producing the highest quality photographs in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible? If you are, then this book is for you. Author Ken Milburn, has done an outstanding job of writing a 2nd edition of a book that focuses on digital SLR cameras that have higher megapixels of noninterpolated resolution, interchangeable lenses, and larger, more noise-free sensors. "
-- John R. Vacca, Amazon Reviewer

"Ken teaches the workflow mentioned above using the Adobe Bridge and Photoshop applications. If nothing else, Adobe applications like these have a wide reach, so you'll be able to replicate what you learn from the book. I like the explanations that Ken offers for shooting in RAW vs. JPEG mode, and for ensuring that you are always ready to take photos, no matter the conditions. Another nice nugget is the method of eliminating noise from your photos by using Photoshop."
-- Raoul Pop, Blog Critics

"At 360-odd pages, its not the largest Photoshop book (Real World or Photoshop Bible would probably take that honour), but this book is an well laid out making it an easy read and a logically arranged, so it's probably one of the best all-around books on the topic available."

He does not assume that you know everything on each topic; instead he makes his points and allows you to determine if the content is relevant to your needs.

"This is a book that takes the reader through the steps of taking a photo, processing and re-touching with Photoshop and finally on to presentation. It starts off right with the basics of taking care of your camera and shooting tips, then moves through a work flow that covers organizing and processing images before presentation."
-- staff writer, YYZTech.ca

"There are several authors whose books I generally try to look at when they first come out or are revised. For some reason, Milburn hadn't been on that list. After taking a closer look at "Digital Photography Expert Techniques," that's an oversight I'm going to correct."
-- Ron Eggers, Professional Photographer

"Ken Milburn knows his stuff, and has developed a highly effective workflow for processing, organizing, presenting and publishing his photos. His experience shows through in each chapter as he opens up his entire process for everyone who reads this title to learn from. Though I found some of my own workflow techniques already matched his suggestions, I found numerous suggestions I hadn't previously known or considered that have helped improve my effectiveness. Efficient and effective workflow is the overriding theme of this title...I recommend this book to anyone who is shooting a high volume of photos, particularly those that may be working their way into portrait photography for hire. Adding the habits and knowledge gained from this title will make you a much better professional as well as the ability to output top notch photos. "
