Want to know more about common digital photography problems like noise and blown-out highlights? Choosing between RAW and JPEG formats? Take Your Best Shot is now available from O'Reilly Media for $34.99. The book is written by Tim Grey, a member of the Photoshop World Dream Team of Instructors who has been answering digital photography questions for years on his popular DDQ: Digital Darkroom Questions daily e-mail newsletter, and his printed Digital Darkroom Quarterly newsletter.

Take Your Best Shot is 252 pages and organized by subject so you can look up any issue. "Today, many photographers feel they don't need a lot of new information because they have already learned so much," Grey says. "But what I've found is that what they've learned isn't always accurate."
