Author Biography

Dan Margulis is known as “the experts’ expert on the logical and effective ways to make any image look its best” (Design Tools Monthly) and “the father of digital prepress” (Scott Kelby). In 2001, he was one of the first three individuals–and the only writer–to be named as a member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame. In announcing this election, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals said, “Dan's ability to reduce complicated concepts to words that users can understand and his insistence on dealing with real-world relevance have made him today's most influential voice in color reproduction.”
