Baxes, Gregory A. Digital Image Processing: Principles and Applications.
New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1994. An easy-to-read, largely non-mathematical introduction to image processing, with lots of examples and pictures. Includes a diskette with simple demonstration program.
Castleman, Kenneth R. Digital Image Processing. Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall, 1996. Intended as a textbook, this book offers a comprehensive view of image processing. The discussions of the histogram, point and linear operators, and filtering in the Fourier domain are especially comprehensible.
Gonzales, Rafael, and Paul Wintz. Digital Image Processing. 2nd ed. Reading, MA: Addison-Wesley, 1987. This volume is an update of the classic work in image processing, usually referred to by the authors' names alone: Wintz and Gonzales. The text moves rapidly through the basics to focus on processing and enhancement in frequency space.
Jahne, Bernd. Digital Image Processing. Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 1991. Every author brings a fresh viewpoint to a subject, even when the books have exactly the same title. The best nuggets to be gleaned from Jahne's book are in the area of linear shift-invariant operators and filter design.
Pratt, William K. Digital Image Processing. New York: Wiley-Interscience, 1978. This book grew from course notes by Dr. Pratt under the aegis of ARPA. It has the completeness characteristic of a survey intended for engineers and scientists eager to bring their skills up to date, and the clarity and directness not always found in books that deal heavily in the mathematical theory behind image processing. A classic.

Adobe Photoshop can be a complex tool only because you can do so much with it, however for in this video series, we're going to keep it as simple as possible. In fact, in this video you'll see an overview of the few tools and Adobe Photoshop features we will use. When you see this video, you'll see how you can do so much with so few features, but you'll learn how to use them in depth in the future videos.
